Tyler William Myers met an untimely death on the evening of November 21, at the age of 22. A memorial service will be held at Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm, on the afternoon of Saturday, December 6, at 1:00 p.m.
Following a time of fellowship and refreshments at the Mountainside Room, the interment will take place at Tappen Cemetery.
Tyler was born in Salmon Arm on April 11, 1986 to Dusty and Barbara Myers. He spent the first four years of his life in Mara, with sister Christina (13) and brother David (12) who showered him with hugs and kisses. His grandparents, Tom and Chris Wookey and Keith and Sadie Davy and many aunts,
uncles and cousins were close by to love him.
In 1990, the family moved to Salmon Arm where Tyler attended South Canoe School. From September, 1997 to June, 2004, Tyler lived with his father and Donna Linklater (daughters, Sandy and Brandy) in Campbell River. As Tyler’s brother and sister were also living in Campbell River, his mother moved there in 2001 and returned to Salmon Arm after Tyler’s graduation in 2004 from Timberland High School.
On July 10, 2004, Tyler was involved in a tragic vehicle accident where he witnessed the death of his father. Shattered by the memories of that event, Tyler spent the next four years searching for some sense to the meaning of life and where he belonged.
In March, 2006, Tyler moved back to Salmon Arm. Following in the steps of his father, who worked as a Superintendent in construction for many years, Tyler then pursued a career as a pipe-layer under the guidance of Darrell Doussept, of Invermere Contracting.
Tyler enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and often spoke of a better future with his girlfriend, who gave him a reason for living. Unfortunately, some other lost soul had different plans for Tyler on the evening of November 21st. Tyler’s death is deeply felt by all those who loved and cared for him.
