Obituary: Preston Terry Myers
Preston Terry Myers was born Oct. 28, 1987, to Brad A. Myers and Lori Lee Batchelor Myers. He passed away surrounded by his family, and returned to his Heavenly Father on Feb. 5, 2014, in Prescott, Ariz.
Although born in Phoenix, Ariz., he lived in St. George, Utah, for most of his life, including his elementary, middle, and high school years. He married Lexie Ollie Petersen, and though they later divorced, she held a special place in his heart.
At a young age he developed a passion for his true loves: basketball, fishing, golf, anything that involved riding on a board, video games, and friends, many of which were girls. He loved to cheer for the underdog, which might explain his unwavering loyalty to the Utah Jazz. He is a bright and wonderful soul who loves to laugh and help others do the same. He absolutely adored little children. His nephews Jackson and Henry are his favorites. Preston loved being with his family and he teased and joked with them as much as possible. Preston's unique and wonderful personality allowed him to walk in many circles, thus making friends from every race, religion and nationality. He loved them all. He was a huge "Harry Potter" fan and claimed to be from the House of Slytherin. He and his trusty boxer dog named Floyd had many adventures and he called him his son. Preston touched many lives and will be EXTREMELY missed and NEVER forgotten. He is now in his Heavenly Father's care and watching over us.
He is survived by his parents, Brad and Lori Myers of St. George, Utah; his brother Victor Kent Myers (Sarah Wilkey Myers); nephews Jackson and Henry of Chino Hills, Calif.; his sister Samantha Lee Myers of St. George; his brother Elder Nathan Brad Myers of Washington Federal Way Mission; and his brother Stockton McKay Myers of St. George. He is also survived by his grandparents, Kent and Cherie Myers of Cedar City, Utah, Terry and Lavelle Batchelor of South Jordan, Utah and Kathleen and Lane Bessey 0f Herriman, Utah. He is preceded in death by his brother Brad "McKay" Myers.
