Michael Francis Miros

Wadswoth, OH, 1958 - 2022

Michael Francis Miros, 64, passed away unexpectedly on June 30, 2022 at home. He was born on April 6, 1958 in Fort Smith, Ark., and was the son of Frank Warren and Betty Sokora Miros.
Michael graduated from Subiaco Academy in Subiaco, Arkansas where he excelled in varsity sports. He graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and as a resident advisor, developed many skills to use throughout life. Michael continued to love his Buckeyes and would wax eloquently when given the opportunity.
After graduation, he was employed as the manager of student housing at The Ohio State University campus in Wooster, Ohio. He collaborated with the administration and staff to support and guide students during their college experience. Michael was a certified financial advisor at Merrill Lynch in Columbus, Ohio, for several years before he returned to Little Rock, Ark., to become a branch manager at Raymond James. More recently, Michael's successful journey with John 3:16, a nonprofit organization in Charlotte, Ark., was truly admirable. The opportunities and experiences at John 3:16 were life changing and something for which he was eternally grateful.
Michael's infectious laugh and humor, his concern for others, and his kind heart will be remembered by all who knew him. His ability to retell and discuss the parts of any John Wayne movie will be missed.
He loved to tease and get the best of you, and those fond memories will be forever treasured.
