Todd Nordeen, a truck driver, died in an automobile accident April 29 in Sarasota, Fla., where he had lived for two years. The former Ellicott City resident was 36.
Born in Silver Spring, he moved to Ellicott City as a child and was a 1989 graduate of Mount Hebron High School.
He became a truck driver and worked for Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. and for a Middle Eastern restaurant food supplier. He moved to Florida in 2004 and worked for Carmax and a swimming pool supply firm.
"He was a generous, kind, and caring person who was known for always helping anyone who was in need," said his brother, Peter Nordeen of De Pere, Wis.
Mr. Nordeen enjoyed playing pickup basketball and participating in softball leagues. He followed Notre Dame football and attended Orioles games.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. May 19 at the Roman Catholic Church of the Resurrection, 3175 Paulskirk Drive in Ellicott City, where he had been a member.
In addition to his brother, survivors include his father, Robert Nordeen Sr. of Ellicott City; another brother, Dan Nordeen, also of Ellicott City; and two nephews.
