OBITUARY - STEVEN BERNARD "STEVE" MYER
Steven Bernard Myer was born February 4, 1954, at Fort Dodge, Iowa, to Bernard Lee and Irene Gladys (SELK) MYER.
Steve graduated from Northwest Webster Community high school at Barnum, Iowa in 1972. He was a plumber and electrician for
28 years and has operated MYER Plumbing in Mount Ayr the past 22 years, having lived in Grant City, Missouri, Elk City,
Oklahoma, Clare, Iowa and Gilmore City, Iowa.
Steve was united in marriage to Jackie ELLIS at the Weldon Christian Church in Weldon, Iowa, on May 26, 1990. This
marriage was blessed with two daughters, Tessia Irene and Bailey Frances. Steve accomplished many things during his
life but his accomplishments as a father and a husband were his greatest. Steve found great joy in spending time with
his family and was the best Daddy two little girls could ever ask for.
Steve's second greatest accomplishment was all the love and friendship he shared with his family and many friends. Quick
to smile, slow to judge and ready to laugh, Steve was irresistable to anyone who spent time with him. He was able to see
the goodness in all those around him.
Steve worked hard but played every bit as hard. He had a knack for taking the simple and mundane moments and turning them
into exciting and joyous events. His belief that life should never be taken too seriously brought delight to all those who
knew and loved him.
Steve passed away unexpectedly on the morning of December 28, 2000.
He was preceded in death by his mother Irene; his grandparents, Henry SELK, Glen and Bertha MYER; and his father-in-law
