Todd G. Frohwirth of Waukesha died after a brave battle with cancer on Sunday, March 26, 2017, at the age of 54 years. He was born in Milwaukee, the son of Russell and Patricia Frohwirth.
Todd attended Messmer High School, Waukesha County Technical College and Northwest Missouri State University. He married his wife, Jacqueline (nee Vincent) on September 20, 1986. Baseball and basketball were a big part of his life— he was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1984.

He then coached for several years before becoming a professional scout for the Baltimore Orioles for the last 15 years.
