Todd is preceded in death by his father and step-mother, Doyle and Jessie Yates of Monette. 

Todd worked for Middleton Heating and Air. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and being on the river. Todd was larger than life, both literally and figuratively. Standing at 6’5” he loved to make people laugh and never met a stranger.
