Funeral services were held Monday in Plattsville, Ontario for Private Tyler William Todd, who last week became the 142nd Canadian Forces soldier to die in combat in Afghanistan.

Todd, who was nearing the end of his tour in Afghanistan, died April 11 in a powerful roadside bomb blast while on foot patrol near the community of Belanday, southwest of Kandahar City.
