Todd Allen Menz, 58


Funeral services for Todd Allen Menz, 58, of Pottersville, were held March 8, 2024, at the Langston Street Chapel of Robertson-Drago Funeral Home in West Plains. 

Todd died March 2. He was born on May 18, 1965. He grew up in Delta, Missouri, and moved to Howell County in 1990 to pursue a life he loved in the cattle industry. Owning livestock auctions through the years and building relationships across the midwest, Todd became a staple in the cattle community. During his decades long career he was a stranger to none and a friend to all.

Todd was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. While he left his loved ones far too soon, the impact Todd had on those who knew him will be felt for years to come. He embodied the best of qualities: unconditional love, strength of spirit and an unending generosity.

Todd’s love was tough, but it ran deep. He was loyal, unbelievably hard working, and lived at top speed to selflessly provide. The passion he poured into his family, his friendships, his businesses and his relationship with his Creator never wavered.

Todd was so proud of the farm and the business he built with his son, Chad. His greatest joys included spending time on the lake, enjoying his mornings with Adonia studying God’s word over a cup of coffee, loving his adult kids and spoiling his grandchildren.

Todd is survived by his wife of nine years, Adonia; his children: Chad Menz and wife Amelia of Pottersville, Haley Menz of Nashville, Tennessee, Morgan Cook and husband Dillynn of Rolla, and Sidney Burgess of Joplin. He was the proud Gramps of Bode and Katherine. Todd leaves behind two siblings, Kelley Phillips and husband Merle of Pottersville and Brian Menz and wife Shelley of West Plains, along with countless other loved ones.

He was preceded in death by his parents Jerry Menz and Sharon Coats.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Todd’s honor be made to The Ministries of Heaven’s Family, an organization he felt strongly about. Donations may be left at or mailed to Robertson-Drago Funeral Home, 211 West Main, West Plains, MO 65775. Online condolences may be left at
