Todd Dramon Miles was born on September 4, 1970 in Lansing Michigan to Helen and Phillip Miles, and was raised with his siblings, sister Sue, and two brothers Jessie and Samuel. After graduating from Everett High School in 1988, Todd enlisted in the U.S. Navy. Todd served four years, and was sent to Kuwait to face combat in 1991 in Operation Desert Storm. After his time in the service, Todd attended Lansing Community College where he earned an associates degree in broadcasting. Todd worked in television for WILX, but was best know for the countless hours he spent with youth boxing programs. Todd served as a referee, judge, and time keeper for 10 years helping to shape and influence the lives of young men and women. Todd was also well respected in the professional ranks of boxing, where his services as a chief second and cut man were highly sought after, most notably serving as first assistant cut man to Ali Easley for 6 years. With this, boxing took Todd around the world where he honed his skills and trade, having worked in such places as Madrid Spain, Belair Luxemburg, Courtes England, and countless cities across the United States.
Todd was a man who gave so much of himself for others, and was always quick with a joke to make others smile and laugh. On August 2, 2006, Todd succumbed to a rare heart disease. Our thoughts will always be with you. You are loved and missed.
