Todd Allen Harrison, the son of Duane and Audrey (Hansen) Harrison, was born December 28, 1964, in Battle Creek, Iowa. Growing up in Battle Creek, Todd received his education and graduated from Battle Creek High School with the class of 1983. During his school years Todd was crowned homecoming king and was an accomplished athlete. He had a passion for playing football and remained an avid football fan. 

After graduation, Todd entered the workforce where he was employed by various businesses including Midwest Industries in Ida Grove, Iowa. On March 27, 1993, Todd was united in marriage to Karen Schumacher in the First Presbyterian Church of Battle Creek. The couple was blessed with four children: Casey, Katelyn, Ty, and Kara. The family made their home in Battle Creek. 

As an outdoorsman, Todd enjoyed fishing and hunting pheasants with his children and nephews. Todd had an eye for detail. He took pride in maintaining his yard and detailing his truck. He also liked snowmobiling and horses. A proud family man, Todd treasured spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great nieces and nephews. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and ability to joke around with others.
