Todd Tate, 56, of Flinton PA

Danville PA as the result of an accident. He was born October 23, 1963 in
State College PA, the son of the late Franklin Tate and Nancy Porter.
Todd was a self-employed roofer
and laborer for most of his life.
Todd was well known for his
happy disposition and how much he loved life. Having a kind and generous
heart, he was always helping people even though he might not have known
them. Todd enjoyed quilting, traveling to West Virginia, camping, taking
trips out to Sturgis every year, riding motorcycles, and hanging out with
his friends. His favorite color was definitely purple and you would never
see him without his Galliker's Chocolate Milk and Marlboro Reds.

Timmy of Lewistown PA and one son, Alexander Tate of Bellefonte PA. Also

countless friends and his family. His absence in this world will be felt,
but the richness with which he blessed our lives will never fade.
A personal note from Tessa: “I
am so grateful for growing up with one of the best dads in the world. I
will never forget our time spent together and will cherish every memory
shared. He deserved so much more time here with all of us. I will love you
