Jeffrey “Todd” McAllister

Jeffrey “Todd” McAllister, 48, of Greenwood, passed away peacefully, in the arms of his beloved wife, on July 2, 2022. He was the son of the late Dianna Weeks and Roger McAllister. 

He is survived by his wife Emily McAllister, his two precious fur babies Bella and Jax, his beloved grandmother Shirley Toms, his father Roger McAllister, a very special cousin Chip Obrien and numerous special aunts and uncles. He also leaves to cherish his memory numerous special cousins and so many special life-long friends.

Todd was the proud owner and operator of McAllister Painting. He was a master of his craft with 29 years of experience. He was sought after by clients for his expertise, perfectionism and professionalism. He was also extremely mindful to provide for his clients, offering excellent customer service and friendship. He considered so many of his clients friends. If Todd found out a client’s birthday was coming up he would always make sure to get them a cake or flowers. He would also enjoy delivering his clients fresh vegetables and canned goods from his gardens. 

Todd loved and cherished his family and friends dearly, especially his Grandma Shirley who he would call and talk to for hours on the phone every evening after work. He learned so much from her! Especially all of her canning secrets. He then became a master vegetable gardener and expert at canning and pickling. For which he would then share with all of his family, friends, neighbors and clients. 

Two days before his heart attack he was picking vegetables out of his beautiful garden and delivering them to his neighbors which made him so happy! 

Todd loved animals of all kinds and rescued and nurtured many special dogs and cats over the years. He will be so missed by his sweet Beagle babies Bella and Jax! 

He loved and lived for music. Enjoying all genres and playing the guitar. He loved vacationing at Smith Mountain Lake while boating and fishing. He loved the little things in life that mean so much! Todd is a great example of God’s Unconditional Love. He was able to express his love to others freely, and by just being kind. That love will live on through all that he has touched. And he will be truly missed by all. At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought but what we built; not what we got but what we shared; not competence but our character; and not our success but our significance. Live a Life that Matters. Live a Life of Love. 

A celebration of Todd’s amazing life was held July 30 at the Sportsmen’s Club, a time to share and support each other in friendship, family, food and music. In lieu of flowers please make donations in Todd’s honor to the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA, Crozet Volunteer Fire Department and Western Albemarle Rescue Squad.
