November 21, 1985- Calgary, AB
October 5, 2013 – Calgary, AB
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful son Graham Myers of Calgary on October 5, 2013 at the age of 27 years.
Graham was born a beautiful child, the longed for sibling to his loving big sister Karen and destined to become the beloved brother of Sean. His bubbly personality was a joy to all. In his youth Graham loved sports. He was an avid soccer and hockey player, always playing his heart out for his team. He joined the Nancy Green Ski Club at the tender age of six, the sport coming naturally to him. Later he took up snowboarding and golf, his athleticism always shining through. He was in his element hiking and mountain biking in the Rocky Mountains. Graham was a kind and empathetic soul, never judging others. He had a unique ability to put all at ease, whether young or old. Graham conversed with knowledge and intelligence on a wide variety of topics, as diverse as professional sports and micro-biology. He became very passionate about strength training and nutrition, which he approached as an exact science. Unfortunately, in Graham’s early teens, a variety of diseases began to manifest in him. He struggled to overcome his illnesses, but, no matter how hard he fought, they deprived him of his ability to follow his dreams. The greatest joy of Graham’s life was when he became a father. He loved his son Hayden beyond words. The gentleness and adoration he had for Hayden were beautiful to watch and a lesson to us all.
Graham is survived by Tyleshia Kindt and son Hayden Myers-Kindt; parents Carol and Richard Myers; sister Karen Myers and brother Sean Myers (Chelsea Bartlett); grandmother Theresa Martin; Aunts Heather Sallay and Norma Myers (Paul); Uncles Greg Martin, Brian Myers (Cheryl), Stephen McKibbon (Colleen) and John Myers (Angela); cousins Trent Myers (Catherine), Troy Myers (Marcela), Lisa Myers, Brad Myers, Richard Louis Myers (Meredith), Matt Myers, Sarah Myers and Nicki West (Adam). Graham was predeceased by his grandmother Muriel Frances Myers; grandfather Charles Vernon Myers and Robert Martin; and Aunts Patricia McKibbon and Carol Audrey Myers.
