Todd A. Balko, 46, of Girard, passed away with his family by his side on March 2, 2020 at the Cleveland Clinic.
He was born on August 29, 1973 to Thomas and Linda (Baker) Balko in Erie, PA. He graduated from McDowell High School in 1991. Upon graduation, Todd attended Triangle Tech in Erie, earning a degree in Computer-Aided Drafting and Design. He worked at Bliley Electric, Finish Thompson, 84 Lumber and most recently at Lakeview Forge.
Todd was an avid bowler participating in many leagues with fourteen 300 games and six 800 series. He was also a softball coach for his daughters' teams. Todd enjoyed hunting and fishing and just enjoyed being outdoors, and could he ever detail a car. But most of all, time spent with his family was by far his favorite enjoyment.
In addition to his father and step-mother, Linda, Todd is survived by his wife, Stephanie (Srnka) Balko, whom he married on August 15, 1998 in Erie; two daughters, Julia and Rachel Balko; a son, Nathan Balko; his brother, Keith Balko; his mother and father in law, Theodore and Jerri Calhoun; brother and sister in law, TJ Calhoun (Lindsey) and niece, Claire; also an aunt, uncle and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Linda L. (Baker) Balko.
Friends may call on Friday, from 2 pm to 4 pm and 6 pm to 8 pm at Edder Funeral Home Inc., 309 Main St. East, Girard and are invited to attend services there on Saturday at 10 am with Pastor Bruce Davis officiating.
