Ithal Anthony "Buddy" Todesco

November 20, 1948 - July 26, 2020


Ithal Anthony (Buddy) Todesco, 71, of Mountain City, TX, beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather, and friend, passed away on July 26, 2020. He entered this world on November 20, 1948, in Galveston, TX. He was the 2nd oldest of 5 children born to Leo and Geraldine Todesco.

Buddy went to high school at Texas City High School and graduated in 1967. He went on to earn a bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1971. It was at UT where he met the love of his life and realized how amazing the Longhorns are. His love of computers led him to start his own business, Help Key Inc. Owning his own business helped free up a lot of time to dedicate to his family. Buddy also loved sports, especially baseball. He played, watched, and researched the game and worked to transfer that love to his son Lee, and other children in youth baseball. He got so much joy in watching his son play high school football and then college baseball at UTSA. Being a Longhorn for life he also loved going to football games and seeing his daughter march in the Longhorn Band and in the Longhorn Alumni Band. He was very intelligent, thoughtful, and gained the respect of all those around him. Above all, though, he loved being Poppy to his 2 grandkids whom he loved so much.

He is survived by his loving wife of 46 years Marwick Todesco; his daughter, Lindsey Todesco; son, Lee Todesco, daughter-in-law Michelle; his 2 grandchildren Tristan and Kylie, nieces, nephews, extended family, and many friends.

In accordance with his wishes, there will be no public memorial service. Instead, the family will have an intimate ceremony of his life in his memory.
