In loving memory of

Steven Daniel Myers
February 11, 1950 - March 26, 2021

Our Remembrance of Steve Myers

The loving warmth Steve brought to each of us continues in our hearts.

Steve was born on February 11, 1950 to Hazel and Billy Dean Myers in Wichita, Kansas and left us on March 26, 2021 in Plano, Texas. He grew up in Leeds, Alabama. He received his Bachelor's degree from the University of North Texas. It was here that he developed a lifelong friendship and love with his wife, Cheryl. Their marriage lasted 45 incredible and amazing years. Pure joy lit up their lives with the birth of their son, Clint.

Steve had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and learning. He loved asking questions and trying to find simple solutions to the world's trickiest problems.
While working in Mexico and living in McAllen, Texas, Steve earned a Master's Degree in Business from the University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley. Even in his retirement, Steve kept busy with his many hobbies: remodeling, woodworking, travel, gardening, and cooking. A proud Eagle Scout until the end, he also valued civic engagement and volunteerism. He has worked on many builds for Habitat for Humanity and drove multiple routes with Meals on Wheels. He most enjoyed going on adventures with his best buddy and grandson, Ronin.

Steve's love for his family was limitless. Of all his accomplishments, he aspired most to be a kind and loving husband, father, grandpa, son, brother, uncle and friend. He is dearly missed by his wife, Cheryl; his son, Clint, with his wife Sophia, their son Ronin, and Sophia's family; his brother, Mark, with his wife Sherri and her family; his sister, Sharon Compton, and her husband Jim and their family; and by all of Cheryl's family and their many friends.

Due to COVID and a sincere desire that everyone stays safe and healthy, we ask that you share your condolences (and if you wish, a favorite story) on this website. Steve believed in giving, sharing, and earth sustainability. In lieu of sending flowers, we ask that you consider donating to a charity that supports equality, earth sustainability, or civic awareness.

"I first met Steve at my place of work when he was meeting Cheryl for lunch and a walk. Steve made a great first impression on me. I will never forget that first meeting particularly how genuine he was, his smile, humor, and friendly manner . As I got to know Steve better through similar subsequent encounters it was obvious, he was special and authentic. I loved it when Steve would come to the office to meet Cheryl. What a blessing to get a glimpse into Steve?s and Cheryl?s relationship. It was clear they were incredible together; they were role models for marital relationships. Sometimes I would see Steve and Cheryl taking walks, just enjoying each other and the day and it brought joy to me too. I enjoyed listening to Cheryl talk about Steve and to see her love for him . Steve?s life is an outstanding example for the rest of us. Cheryl, Clint and family, my heartfelt condolences. You are in my thoughts and prayers. "

"Cheryl and Family - I am so sorry for your loss. I can remember all the times I would see Steve and Cheryl together at lunch at the office and I always thought to myself, this is what true love looks like. It was very apparent how much they loved each other and how much he treasured his wife. The way they would smile and look at each other was so sweet. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers."

"I met Steve in 1972 when my family moved to Arlington, TX. He and Sherry were dating (was more like courting) and I thought he was the ideal mate for Sherry. He had a great sense of humor, he was a humanitarian, his moral compass was ALWAYS pointing true North. One (of many great memories) was a canoe trip down the Brazos. My friend Brian and I were in one canoe following Steve and Sheri in there canoe. Brian and I were hosting dinner and Steve and Sheri were going to prepare breakfast the next morning. I don't know what I was thinking when I thought it might be fun since I am not attuned to roughing it, paddling a canoe, down a river on a hot July day in Texas or preparing dinner. When we found a location and settled in, i began the dinner preparations: steak, potatoes, salad (tomatoes, olive oil dressing), vegetables, a decadent cake for desert, linen napkins, wine (red and white), after dinner cognac and cigars. Our canoe was almost below the water line due to the weight of the food. Steve and Sheri thought we were absolutely crazy! Steve made the comment: "we ate better on a camping trip than we do at home." It was rather late we when wrapped up dinner, being entertained by Steve and his marvelous stories (he was a great story teller), and having another night cap. We pulled the canoes ashore and went to sleep. We woke up in the morning and the canoes were gone. None of us thought the river might rise during the night because of the tide. After we stopped laughing, Sheri was wise enough to take out the breakfast provisions, and started to walk down river hoping the canoes would eventually end up and the dock where we were supposed to drop them off. We had no idea how far it was down the river to the dock. As we started walking, the day got hotter, we didn't have any water and there was no end in site. After what seemed liked hours, we found the boat and our cars. We had walked for nearly two hours. We were tired, hot and sweaty, and couldn't wait to get home to clean up. It was a great adventure and tons of fun. Steve made the comment when we talked about the trip going home: "i guess roughing it for you is a hotel without 24 hour room service." I always loved his humor, his stories and his pragmatic view of life. He will be sorely missed by all his friends and family. JS"

"When my sister Sophia married Clint, she didn't just gain a wonderful husband and partner - she also got the best in-laws a person could ask for. Steve and Cheryl have been extensions of our family for the past several years and we are incredibly grateful that we've been able to spend several holidays, celebrations and special family moments with them. I will always cherish the love, generosity and care that Steve has shown my sister, little Ronin and my entire family. He will be greatly missed and we'll always remember what a kind and amazing person he was. "

"I only met Steve once during our company Christmas party when my wife and I sat at the same table as Cheryl and Steve. I was relatively new to the company and we did not know many people at the event, but Steve actually took the time to talk to us that night and made us feel comfortable. He was very nice and kind (and really funny!). Sorry for your loss, Cheryl. I have no doubt that he will be missed by all who knew him, or even just met him on few ocassions like we did. Our prayers are with you and your family."

"What a devastating loss this world suffered by losing Steve. The first time I met Steve he was so genuine and kind. He not only tried to find out about me but connect with me on a personal level. He truly cared about people and wanted to make an impact in their lives. He did that through his kindness to all. He and Cheryl were like high school sweethearts. They were always so happy together and each one complimented the other greatly. They made a beautiful family and home. I pray that in the days ahead that the family will find comfort knowing Steve made the world a better place. I pray that there is comfort for you all to know that the Lord is close to the brokenhearted. You are not walking through this alone for he is with you. You will be missed, Steve."

"I had the pleasure of meeting Steve a couple of times and he seemed like a great person. He definitely had to be since he was married to the sweetest lady Cheryl. My condolences to the family. May God give you comfort in this most difficult time. Rest Well Steve. "

"Steve was the love of Cheryl's life and a true life partner. I remember seeing them eating together and walking during her lunch hour. That seemed to be her favorite part of the day - as she would say with her Honey! I remember hearing her talking on the phone with him from her office when he'd arrive for lunch. They were truly a special couple and modeled unconditional love. Asha"

"I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Myers as I am new to the training team but one thing that stuck out with me is when Mrs. Cheryl would speak to him on the phone or talk about him in general. She would light up like a light. That speaks volumes because I could see the love they shared in her eyes. That is something I will never forget. Just know your family are in my thoughts and prayers."

Sara Skopljak wrote on Mar 30, 2021:

"My fondest memory of Steve was watching him and Cheryl together. Their love for each other was so evident and that is something you don't always see. He would visit her often at work, always greeted her with a kiss. You would see them eating lunch together, going on walks and just simply enjoying each other's company. A true gentleman... I love hearing Cheryl talk about his relationship with Clint and now Ronin too. He was obviously a proud Dad and Grandpa. I know he cared deeply about his family and the community too. What a loss. Cheryl, Clint and family, I send my deepest condolences. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come."

George Lee wrote on Mar 30, 2021:

"I only met Steve a few times, but I never forgot his smile and outlook on life from the first time I met him. He always seemed happy and that he truly enjoyed life; it really showed in his expressions and in how he spoke. I know he dearly loved his wife and family and you could tell they were a loving family. He will truly be missed. "

"Steve was a gentle and loving man. He was very respectful and kind. There is nothing he can?t fix; he was a man of many talents. His love for his family was very evident as he always made them his priority. The world lost a great man, who will be missed tremendously. Fly high, Steve! Sally "

"Steve was truly a Renaissance man. He was wickedly smart an funny. He was a true leader and taught us so much building the Habitat Houses. Bottom line he was a joy to know and truly made this a better world. Not a bad legacy to leave behind. Greg "
