Michael Todd Myers was born in Howard Memorial Hospital on May 20, 1967. He attended Central High School in Little Rock and graduated from Northeast High School in North Little Rock. A brilliant scholar, Todd attended Rice University and was employed by the University of Houston. Todd lost his courageous battle with cancer on Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021.
Todd was a brilliant man and a kind and loving friend, with a great sense of humor. He had a passion for geography and world affairs and could speak many languages. Before the days of the Internet, he loved his shortwave radio with which he listened to broadcasts from around the globe. Once he was introduced to the Internet, there was no going back — it became his window on the world. He was a walking encyclopedia of entertainment and pop culture. He made a career of working with books. Cinema and television were his great hobbies. His passing will leave a place of great sadness in the hearts of all who knew him.
He is predeceased by his father, Mickey Myers of Nashville, Aunt Karen McCoy of Little Rock, and niece Ella Grace Myers of Nashville.
He leaves behind his longtime companion, Andrew Venier of Houston, Texas, special friend Terry Bridges of Little Rock, and his beloved canine friend, Maxine.
He is survived by his mother, Roseanna Kazan of North Little Rock; sister Sylvia Rather (David) of Delight; brothers, Mat Myers (Tugi) and Mark Myers (Sarah) of Nashville; nieces Hannah, Kelli, Claire and Avery, all of Nashville; nephews Evan Wakefield (Regan) of Nashville and Seth Wakefield (Taylor) of Alexander; one special great-niece, Kamrie Wakefield; cousin Dr. Julia McCoy of Little Rock, and a host of other family and friends.
A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, Todd would encourage donations to your local animal shelter.
