Obituary of Walter Myers
Walter “Dean” Myers 87 passed away February 16, 2022 in Meridian, Idaho. Born January 16, 1935 in Mesa, Idaho to Otto Myers & Alice Cederburg. His siblings ranged from Half to Step, but were all very dear to his heart. His beautiful wife of 48 years Marilyn Myers is left with the many memories of their travels and adventures. Between Dean & Marilyn they raised 8 children total.
Mom & Dad had many adventures throughout their 48 years together. They traveled to Europe, Mexico & many places throughout the United States. Dad could tell you stories for hours, he loved to make people laugh no matter where he was. He never knew a stranger.
Dad was in the Army National Guard for 42 years before he & mom decided to retire in 1990 so they could travel & make memories. (Oh, the stories he had of his 42 years in the Guard). Dad lived a big life, it would take a novel to write all the adventures from his childhood to present times.
To all the family & friends, too many to list, please know dad loved you all. We all know the heavens are shining brighter now!
