Passing of a Legend

MONTEREY – Todd Trexler, poster artist, AIDS nurse, and legendary bon vivant, died February 9, 2014 at the age of 70 from natural causes. Todd’s work came to define a period in gay pop culture. Todd opened perhaps the first gay business on Castro Street in San Francisco. He was an exceptional artist who illuminated the lives of all who knew him.
He held a Masters in Art and a Masters of Science in Nursing. His MSN thesis was written on homophobia in nursing. He worked 30 years at Community Hospital where he contributed to the well being of many.
Todd’s gratitude list included Joseph Zaccarella;
Nelson; his dog, Jack; and his friends in the fellowship.
Memorial Services will be held at St. James Church, Monterey, on March 15, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. A Reception will follow.
