Repatriation ceremony for soldier killed in Afghanistan planned for Wednesday
Published: April 13th 2010

BRIGHT, Ont. - A repatriation ceremony will be held on Wednesday for a Canadian soldier who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

The body of Pte. Tyler William Todd will arrive at CFB Trenton around 2 p.m.

Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Gen. Walter Natynczyk, the chief of defence staff, will join relatives on the tarmac to pay their respects.

On Tuesday, Todd's family released a statement describing their son as an adventurous young man who never missed an opportunity to put a smile on someone's face.

Todd grew up on his family's farm in Bright, Ont. in the Kitchener-Waterloo region.

His family said Todd always wanted to join the army, and as a child would dress in his grandfather's army uniform.

"Although his life was much too short, he touched the lives of many. Tyler will be truly missed by all that knew him," the family's statement read.

The 26-year-old was killed on the weekend by a powerful roadside bomb just outside a village south of Kandahar city.

He was a member of 11 Platoon, Delta Company from the 1st Battalion of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, based in Edmonton.

His death brings to 142 the number of Canadian soldiers who have died as part of the Afghan mission.
