Todd Harvey Nye

April 22, 1962 — October 13, 2022

Todd Nye, 60, of Grayling passed away suddenly on the morning of October 13th, 2022, in Grayling, MI.

Todd is proceeded in death by his father, Harvey Nye and numerous extended family.

He is survived in life by his wife Dawn Nye. Children Roger (Lori) Alvarez, Dylan (Andrea) Nye, Katlyn (Jordan) Nye, Cortnee (Joe) Nye, Molly Rinckey, and Steven (Hannah) Rinckey. 12 grandchildren. Mother Rosemary Nye. Brothers Rick, Jeff and Robb Nye. As well as many close nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Todd was born at St. Lawrence Hospital in Lansing, MI to Harvey and Rosemary Nye on April 22, 1962.

Todd spent the first part of his life in the Lansing/Grand Ledge area where he attended school. As an adult, he obtained his law degree from Cooley Law School, and practiced law for many years, owning his own law practice. As an adult, he moved to Northern Michigan where he finished out his years in the comfort of small-town life.

He spent a lot of his life traveling and experiencing many different parts of the country. Some of his favorite places to travel were New York City, and Key West, Florida. Todd looked for new experiences and always took the time to learn the history each place had to offer. His love for travel, history and reading are just a few of the special things he passed to his children.

Todd was one of the most passionate people with a very special kind of humor. His way of telling stories would make everyone question if he was being serious, or if the outlandish things he would say could actually be true. Todd was always a dreamer. He believed fully that he was a farmer and had countless animals throughout his life to qualify. He wanted to be a blueberry farmer and spent hours digging holes. He dreamed of opening his own restaurant and spent years of his life experimenting with all kinds of foods and left those that loved him with countless recipes. Todd believed he was born to be a YouTube star and had been going to school to be a nurse practitioner. His ability to dream and work towards those goals will always be one of the most inspiring things about him.

He loved to cheer on his children in sports, music lessons, scouting and so much more. He always encouraged any hobby they wanted and made sure he did what he could to help them all excel. Todd was the one that could silence a gym with how loud he was able to be. He spent a lot of time hunting, hiking, and camping with his kids. He enjoyed all the outdoors had to offer.

He will be exceptionally missed by all who knew and loved him. Taken too soon but never forgotten.
