On March 6th, 2019, the world lost a man with a beautiful soul. A man who enjoyed the simple
pleasures of life– cooking only the best of meals for his family, fly fishing in the babbling rivers
of the Sierra Buttes mountains, mowing the lively green lawns of his home to perfection. A man
who dedicated himself to making the lives of his family brighter and complete. This man’s name
was Todd Haring.
Todd Haring was born on September 21st, 1960, to Mary and Garold Haring, in the sunny city of
San Diego, California. He enjoyed a happy childhood, in a loving home on Mohler Street,
growing up alongside two irreplaceable lifelong companions, his brother and sister Kirk and
Linda. Todd enjoyed a childhood of fun, laughter, and mischief, filled with cruising the
neighborhood on his bicycle with his posse, searching for crawfish on lazy days, and coming
home to watch a routine show of Batman.
A boy with a routine that would never falter, a man with a commitment never broken, a man with
a passion that would never cease. These passions were manifested in each walk of his life,
through the intense biking session of his daily workouts, his continual devotion to keeping up
with current events in the newspaper, and his deep love for creativity and invention.
Todd carried these intrinsic qualities into this educational endeavors and multiple careers. The
countless hours spent diligently studying bore its fruit in his graduation, Summa Cum Laude,
with two majors from San Diego State University. This dedication continued into his
professional pursuits, beginning as a Personnel Director of National ATM and as Business
Director of Affiliated Southwest Surgeons in his later life.
However, the best part of Todd’s story began the day he met the love of his life, Caren Borjeson.
After meeting that fateful night in a bar called Confetti’s, they seemed to have the perfect
romance, an inseparable bond. Whether it be traveling the world’s wonders together, enjoying a
baguette and bottle of wine on the beaches of California, or his desire to capture her beauty in
each picture, their affection was known by all.
And one day, this affection became manifested in their daughter, Jacqueline Montgomery
Haring. Born to the world in 2000, the entirety of Todd’s deep care and compassion was given to
her and Caren. While Caren worked hard each day as a General Surgeon, Todd spent each living
moment ensuring his daughter was happy– taking videos of her as she woke up to his voice in
the morning, making her scrambled eggs and toast as she watched Winnie the Pooh, driving her
each day, from preschool to senior year of high school. He was such a selfless man, shown in this
endless love– in the gourmet meals he prepared each night, in the close attention to detail in the
design of their wonderful home, in the kind and reassuring nature of his smile. There is no way
to possibly communicate to the world how deeply Todd loved his family, and how much he was
loved in return. He is a man that will dearly be missed in all of the days to come, but the
memories he has left for all to remember him by will forever live on. We love you Todd Dean,
and we can’t wait to see you again.
A Dedication by his girl,
