Timothy Thomas Myers
10-20-1962 ~ 10-30-2011
The sun rose on Oct. 20, 1962 and the sun set on Oct 30, 2011.
Tim Myers passed away at home at the age of 49 years.
Tim was a lifetime resident of Huerfano County and made his home at the family ranch south of Walsenburg.
He was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Marion Myers of Walsenburg, CO.
He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Lynn; his son Jake and daughter Jessica, both of Walsenburg; his brothers Don Myers (Kathy) of Loveland, CO and Jerry (Mary) Myers of Franktown, CO; sister Linda Myers of Pueblo West, CO and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Tim loved ranching with all his heart. He was like a walking encyclopedia on many issues and was loved and respected by many. He discovered the new love of his life this past couple of years, his Harley motorcycle.
He was born and raised at the family ranch which was homesteaded by his grandparents, Harold David and Mary Rose (Swartz) Myers in the early 1900s. He graduated from John Mall High School in 1980 and attended college in Laramie, Wyoming where he studied diesel mechanics.
Tim loved hunting and was especially happy to see and help first time hunters get their kill.
Tim will be missed not only as a rancher, father and husband, but also as one who knew a lot about what went on in the good ole days in Huerfano County, who did what and where things used to be. He learned this from his father as well as by growing up on the ranch in Walsenburg. If any of us, or anyone else, wanted to know anything, Tim pretty much knew it, or where it was on the map.
Tim worked the ranch and was a ranch hand for Jim Garren for many years. He loved the open range.
A celebration of his life will be held at the Huerfano County Community Center at 928 Russell Avenue in Walsenburg on Friday, Nov 4 at 1 pm. There was a cremation.
Arrangements were made by Boies-Ortega.
