Brian J. Myers
Brian J. Myers (a classic rock fan) was “Born in the USA”, Pocatello Idaho on April 3, 1959. He took the “Stairway to Heaven” on September 29, 2021.
Being a “Dreamer,” he passed peacefully in his sleep. He is now waiting patiently for his wife of 40 years to join him, where they will begin their eternal life.
He married Lorie Buxton Myers, on July 31, 1981; and because he “(Kept) on loving her)” they were sealed on October 15, 1988, in the Idaho Falls Temple.
Survived by his mother Deanna May Draper Myers, and two brothers Brett Dean Myers and Barry Scott Myers.
He has left five children and their families: Andrea Winward (spouse Travis Winward), Samantha Platt (spouse Austin J Platt), Ian J. Myers (spouse Emily Woodland Myers), Katie Mae Burke (Matthew Alvin Burke) and Jacob Clint Myers, along with six (soon to be seven) grandchildren.
He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and loved the gospel. His most cherished principle of the gospel was serving in the church. He lived life serving his wife, children, grandchildren, mother, brothers, neighbors, co-workers, and friends. He was quick to offer help as much as he was able.
Being a “Simple Man,” he loved his family, and they were the ones that brought him the most joy in this world. He cried with them when they struggled and laughed with them in times of joy. Quick to offer advice and hugs when all you needed was a warm embrace.
Life wasn’t always as planned but he made the best out of what was given to him. He admired hard work and encouraged growth. He truly “Carried on like a wayward son and found piece when he was done.”
Brian J. Myers was best known for his love of family and sports. His family will cherish the memories playing catch with him in the backyard, rebuilding engines, going camping and watching the U of U games without fail. His family will miss his eye rolls, shaking of his head, his silent chuckles, his goofy way of teasing with tickles, jump scares and rough housing. Life with Brian J. Myers was a “Crazy Train,” and as we send him off, we will “keep on loving (him)”.
