Daniel (Danny) Dee Myers
1954 - 2012
Daniel (Danny) Dee Myers of Payson, passed away at home, July 7, 2012. He was born Sept. 15, 1954 in Yuba City, Calif. He was adopted by Mina and Fred Myers when he was 2-1/2 years old.
He graduated from Kansas State High School on Oct. 29, 1971. He married his wife Jeffie Howard, on April 7, 1975, and lived in California with his family until 1987 when he moved to Casa Grande, until 2011, at which time he relocated to Payson.
Mr. Myers’ careers included truck driving, supervising a Tuff Grass and Sod Company, installing draperies and blinds, that work led to owning his own business called Jeffie’s Drapery Fantasy, which he operated until relocating to Arizona.
After raising his family, Mr. Myers went back to college to get his associate degree in arts at Central Arizona College, where he graduated with honors on Dec. 18, 1996.
After receiving his degree, he went on to work as a behavioral health technician, until he became permanently disabled. He cared for his wife, Jeffie Myers and grandson, Tristan Costa until the time of his death.
While living in Payson, Mr. Myers loved to sit outside on the porch, enjoying the breeze, with the hopes of another elk coming into his yard. During his life he had tremendous joy when it came to fishing, gardening and animals, which included everything from reptiles to livestock, with a special place in his heart for his beagle dogs.
Ultimately, Mr. Myers’ greatest joy came from his family and his devotion to them. He was always there for anyone who needed someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, or a great big hug. He will be missed.
He is survived by his wife, Jeffie; daughters, Sandi McCauley of Mesa, Stacie Myers of Eugene, Ore. and Suzanne Christensen of Gold Canyon, Ariz.; son, Christopher Myers of Casa Grande; sister, Mina Lynn Wagner of Pratt, Kan.; and eight grandchildren.
A celebration of life/gathering will be held at 1 p.m., Sunday, July 22 at 500 W. Bridle Path Lane, Payson.
