Todd Alan Cowell, who many know as "Animal", was born on March 23, 1964 in Tracy, MN to his parents Leo and Alice Cowell. Todd was baptized and confirmed in the Christian faith. Todd spent most of his childhood in Butterfield, MN with his 7 brothers and sister.
Todd started working at Butterfield Foods in Butterfield, MN at a young age and continued to work there until his passing (approximately 43 years). Then, while in high school he met the love of his life, Connie whom he married on June 13th, 1987. A year later Todd and Connie bought their farm south of Mountain Lake. When January 3rd, 1990 rolled around Todd and Connie welcomed their son Anthony. Not long after that on June 4th, 1992 Ashley joined the family! Last but not least, on October 16th, 1994 they welcomed Alyssa to the family!
Todd loved spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and taking trips to Duluth with his family! But once he got the title “Papa” when his grandson Coltan was born in October 2011, he loved spending time with his grandkids! He took his role as grandpa very seriously! Todd was known by friends and family to have a heart of gold. He was always willing to lend a helping hand! He was also known for being Mr. Fixit, Todd could literally fix anything! Making friends also came very easily for Todd, many of his friends knew him as “Animal”.
