Todd was born March 9, 1966, in Atlanta, Georgia, son of Sandra Harris Sumner and the late James Charles Sumner. He was a beloved husband, father, son, uncle, and friend to many. He was a graduate of James Island High School and Charleston Southern University. A local entrepreneur, he founded Lowcountry Enterprises and Todd Sumner Construction directly out of college, and consistently grew the businesses over three decades. 

Todd was a member of Harbor View Presbyterian Church and the James Island Yacht Club. He was an avid boater, and enjoyed boat festivals, hosting oyster roasts, deep-sea fishing, and greatly enjoyed the challenges of any type of mechanical repair. He was known for his spontaneous generosity and was always available to help others with any need. Todd was known for his business savvy and the casual dispensing of wisdom that enriched and benefited so many friends and family members. His favorite spot was in front of his fireplace at home with family.

The family wishes to thank the numerous friends who have been supportive in presence and prayers this week.
