When asked about Todd those close to him use words like brilliant, kind, helpful, caring, articulate, analytical, precise, and that “he was a man of his own mind” to describe his personality. His son Blake states that he was the “Best Father you could ever ask for.” He was happiest when he was spending quality time with his wife Ginger, son Blake and their golden retriever (Maggie) . He truly loved being a doctor and loved caring for his patients. Todd was known as a phenomenal cook who enjoyed making “Sunday Frittatas” among many other dishes for his family and guests, but most of all those closest to him will recollect that he was a loving husband, son, brother and a caring and nurturing father to his son Blake. He was pre-deceased by his mother Marilyn in 1999 and by his sister Mindy Trotter in 2013. He is survived by his wife of 12 years Ginger; his father – Philip (Marion) Ginestra of Rockford, IL; his son whom he adored – Blake; brothers – John (Krista) Ginestra of St. Louis, Missouri; and Jay Ginestra of Rockford, IL; Brother-in-law Mark Trotter and many Aunts, Uncles, Nieces and Nephews.
