Gavin John-Walter Myers, beloved son of Eric and Melissa Myers, passed into eternal life on June 8, 2018, as a result of a tragic accident.
Gavin loved life and especially the outdoors. He thoroughly enjoyed fishing and was involved in football, baseball, lacrosse, and swimming during his young life. He also wrestled and swam for Lucille Erwin Middle School. His latest love was scootering (scootin’) with his Loveland friends and especially his best friend and cousin, Eli.
As a family they spent several days in the mountains skiing during the winter months and on their boat at Horsetooth Reservoir during the summer. Gavin was a very caring and compassionate young man especially with those in need of help and assistance. He loved snuggling with Bella (his Golden Retriever bestie) who he took on walks to the dog park and even taught her to hold her own leash.
Gavin is survived by his parents; older sister Ashley; younger brother Kaden; grandparents John and Colleen Myers of Dubuque, Iowa and Cathy Myers (deceased), Walter and Margie Krawczuk of Loveland, and great-grandma, Doris Reddin of Dubuque, Iowa. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins who loved and cherished him dearly.
