Todd A. Dalby

May 17, 1968 — March 22, 2024

Faribault

Todd Anthony Dalby, 55, of Faribault, died Friday, March 22nd, 2024 at home after a courageous and hard fought 17 month battle with Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma.

Todd was born May 17, 1968 to Sheldon and Susan Dalby in Faribault. Growing up, Todd was involved with Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, played football, and made memories with friends. He graduated from Faribault Senior High School with the Class of 1986. Todd married Robin Ann Kaune on May 22, 1999. They welcomed 3 children, Angela, Michael and Leonard. Todd spent many years playing softball. He loved the game and the comradery with everyone. Socializing with others always brought a smile to his face. Todd didn’t go many places where he didn’t find someone he knew including their honeymoon to Mexico. Attending Winstock Music Festival became another favorite tradition where Todd enjoyed going into town with the guys and playing pull tabs. He became known as “Hawaiian Son” a title he held near and dear. Todd always considered his friends to also be a part of his family and once you were his friend, that never ended. 

The Kaune Family tradition of camping also rubbed off and Todd loved sitting around in a camping chair with a group of people. Most times it wouldn’t be long and he would be asleep in the chair but he was there. Todd would enjoy waking up early in the morning and cooking a big breakfast with lots of bacon for everyone to enjoy. This continued as the family created Krazy Kaune Retreat where many memories were made.

Todd worked for C&S Vending and most recently, Post and Faribault Transportation until his cancer caused him to stop working. The people he worked with always became a part of his life and he loved spending time with them.

Todd is survived by his wife of almost 25 years, Robin, daughter Angela and (son-in-law) Aaron Dugan, son’s Michael and Leonard Dalby, grandson Grayson Barry and a grandbaby due in September. His father, Sheldon Dalby, Brother, Dean (Melissa) Dalby, Parents-in-law, John and Carol Kaune, Sisters-in-law, Michelle Kaune, Jessica (Scott) Studnicka, and Natalie (Shadd) Gutzke, Brother-in-law, Anthony (Jennifer) Kaune.
