Todd Arcomano, MD

September 5, 1957 – December 7, 2020

Todd Richard Arcomano MD was born to Dr Nicholas J and Ella Cecilia Arcomano in Long Branch, NJ. He graduated from the Rutgers College class of 1979 and the Georgetown Medical School class of 1983, where he also completed his surgical residency. Todd joined the general surgery practices in Washington, DC; and Reno, Nevada, but spent most of his career with the Veteran’s Administration in Grand Junction, Colorado; Boise, Idaho and Denver, Colorado where he retired from Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center in 2020. His greatest joy has come from teaching surgical residents and he has received numerous teaching awards.

Todd resided in Denver and Basalt, Colorado, where he moved full time upon retirement. Todd was passionate about hiking, skiing and studying nature. He loved the arts and supported the Aspen School and Music Festival and mentored and hosted many music students over the years. He also took great pleasure in collecting art. He was a keen gardener and many in the Roaring Fork Valley shared his generosity.

Todd is survived by his siblings, nieces and nephews: Jon (Carol) parents of Jon Nicholas (Kathleen) Kyle (Ashley) and great-niece Saylor Todd of Long Branch, New Jersey; Drew (Nadine) parents of Troy (Rachel), Lexi and Grant of Oakhurst, New Jersey; Keith (Marie) parents of Noelle and Nicholas of Middletown, New Jersey and Tara (David Tash) parents of Nellie of Snowmass Village Colorado in addition to a great community or loving friends, students and colleagues. Her enthusiasm, intelligence, kindness and generosity were known to all doctors, nurses, residents, healthcare professionals and patients whose lives have been changed for the better. “We learned so much from him about how to be a good human being.” He was known to all who met him as caring and generous with his heart and his head.
