He was reappointed by Mayor Laurene Weste. Longshore attracted many friends in the years he spent coaching youth sports, and in his participation with Scouting and the church. “If you want a friend, Todd Longshore is the friend you want to have,” said Greg Crow, who has been one for 24 years. “Todd Longshore is my friend, will always be my friend, because I know someday I’ll see him again.” Longshore is survived by his wife, DeAnn, and sons Nick, 24; Nate, 19; and Ben, 16; and daughter Courtney, 13. Community members who wish to pay tribute may do so at the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission meeting at 6 p.m. on Friday at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Blvd.
