    Kenny Willem”Mush” I will remember the good times we had back in the 1970s with you and Freddy Radtke and the rest of the Dumont and Bergenfield motor heads from United Choppers………. God Speed

  4. You were a good friend since the late 1950’s and we had many adventures. You were a guest at both of my weddings and other events in my life. You taught me a lot about welding and other projects. Thanks for all your help over the years. I’ll always remember me taking you down for your bike license in Lodi where we had to switch bikes due to mine being inspected and your had not been. Yours (650 BSA) had open exhaust and high bars and mine was a stock Honda Super Hawk. Thanks again for all the help over the years RIP big guy

    I was just reminiscing thru the internet when I see that Todd has passed. I worked at Butler & Smith with Udo and Helmut for many years and loved to see Todd ride up in his very chopped Harley and his black Ford van with a 426 hemi ( and that horn ) along with many other rides. He would shake your hand and tickle you with his stub fingers and smile .Have not seen him in 30 years but my heart aches with this news. RIP my friend….

  8. Todd, You were something else tooling around Closter NJ in your awesome “Mr. Machine”. You and your “Machine”
    were one of a kind and although I haven’t seen you in about 40+ years, I will always remember how the pair of you
    brought a lot of laughs and giggles to my face when you passed by.

    Rest in Peace
