Kerry "Vic" Myers Obituary

Kerry Victor "Vic" Myers peacefully passed away at the age of 61 on Saturday December 16, 2023 at St. Mary’s Hospital. 

Vic was born on May 3rd, 1962 in Grand Junction, Colorado to Jerry and Fae Myers. As a kid, Vic loved to play baseball for Grand Mesa Little League, bake his great grandma Leah’s mayonnaise cake, snow skied, and ride dirt bikes. Vic wrestled throughout middle school and high school, and became quite good. He was a graduate of Central High School in 1980. After graduating, Vic worked in the cameo coal mine until they closed in1991. During this time, Vic welcomed two beautiful children: a son, Brian and a daughter, Dana. 

Vic bought an old, rusty piece of junk that no one thought would be worth anything. With a whole lot of elbow grease, he revived that Dodge Dart and raced it. He traveled to many different states racing. The first time that Vic made it to the finals of his class to win either first or second place, he was so excited to potentially win the gold, he revved his engine and took off. Half way down the track ….  blub blub blub, he ran out of gas. Needless to say, he learned his lesson and never ran out of gas again. Vic went on to win many trophies. He loved to race, and shared this hobby with everyone, taking several including his parents, kids, niece, nephews and more on several rides down the runway. 

Vic was a firm believer in holiday nap times. He could be found feet up in the recycler with his hands interlaced behind his back. This made for the prime opportunity for his nieces to paint his fingernails. This quickly became a fun holiday tradition. Another fun story is when I (Dustin) went TPing with my youth group. I generously offered up my uncle Vic’s house as a prime spot. When he heard the ruckus, he came flying out into the yard in his whitie tighties. 

Vic had an incredible knack for mechanics and rebuilding things. He would see something with no potential and rebuild or restore it. He could always be found tinkering on something. When his nephew needed help with the 67’ Chevy, he listened to the truck, figured out the issue, and within 4 minutes he had it taken apart, cleaned out, and put back together. Something that would have easily taken anyone else 30+ minutes. He was extremely knowledgeable and was always willing to lend a helping hand. 

Vic enjoyed all outdoor sports. He was an avid fisherman and hunter. One fond memory of his nephew Josh was when Vic took him ice fishing for the first time. Vic had been missing his kids and he was overjoyed that Josh wanted to go with him. They got to sit and reminisce together, despite the cold it’s one of Josh’s favorite memories. He was fond of riding his side by side and camping. Growing up on the lake, Vic enjoyed many vacations at lake powell, waterskiing and slaloming. Vic loved to ride his motorcycle, especially Big Red. Despite two major life-threatening motorcycle wrecks, he never stopped riding. He was fearless, and he thoroughly enjoyed taking motorcycle trips with friends. He had plans to visit Yellowstone this coming summer on a ride with friends. He was a once in a lifetime friend. 

Vic worked for WestStar Aviation as a sheet medalist repairing planes. He had the opportunity to repair a couple of planes that were damaged during Hurricane Katrina. His work was first class, and he was good at what he did. He finished out his working days at Twin Otter, doing what he did best, working as an airplane mechanic. 

Vic was a jokester, always giving someone a hard time. He loved his little dog B. In the end, Vic turned his heart back to Jesus. Vic had grown up learning about the Lord, but had walked away for many years. The Lord is faithful, and drew Vic’s heart back to Him. Vic is preceded in death by his father Jerry Myers. He is survived by his mother, Fae Myers, his sister Tammy (Gary) Harper, children Brian (Sarah) and Dana, 3 grandchildren, nephews Dustin (Chelsea) Harper and Josh Harper, niece Ariel (Kodi) Noel, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
