It is with great sadness the family of Dennis Patrick Myers announce his peaceful passing on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at the age of 65 years.
Dennis was born in Edmonton, Alberta on August 26, 1953. Following graduation from high school in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Dennis attended the University of Alberta where he received a Bachelor of Science.
While working on the Old Man River Dam, Dennis saw the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies on the horizon. Always drawn toward adventure, Dennis made his way to the Crowsnest Pass where he set up his home and business, the Villager Real Estate Co. He later bought property in Beaver Mines, where he spent the last decades of his life.
Dennis loved the outdoors, especially random camping in the Castle area, fly fishing, skiing, and snowmobiling. He had a house in Belize, where he would love to escape and scuba dive. Dennis was also an avid traveller – owning Myelli World Travel in Pincher Creek. He loved bringing his family together on many vacations.
At the center of Dennis’s life was his family. After the passing of his father, Dennis devoted his time taking care of his mother. His home was always the gathering place for his 13 brothers and sisters and their children. All his nieces and nephews loved going to Uncle Dennis’s for many dinners, Christmas, Easter and birthday celebrations as they grew up.
Dennis was predeceased by his loving parents, George and Doris Myers; brother-in-law, Bob Stoddart and sister-in-law, Maxine Favel. Left to remember him are his siblings Judy (Gordie) Meland, Georgia (Pete) Sandoval, Bill (Gerry), Peach, Bob (Norma), Mike (Arlene), Marilyn (Michael) Sheptycki, Ron (Nicole), Pat, Maureen Stoddart, Charlie (Rick), Lorraine (John) Pundyk, Ingrid (Rachel), and Jeong Hee Lee, along with his many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his partner, Victoria Collins and her children.
Dennis will always be known for his good-hearted humour, kindness, and generosity.
He will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by the many people who knew him.
