Christopher Lee Myers
Christopher Lee Myers, of Greenfield, Missouri, departed this life on Saturday, June 15, 2019, in his home at the age of 46.
He was born on August 26, 1972 at Cox Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, to Charles A. Myers and Jolene (Newton) Myers, and was a twin to brother Brian Myers. Chris graduated from Greenfield High School in 1990. He had lived in different states including Kansas, Missouri, and Florida, but loved the Greenfield area the best.
Chris loved living in Greenfield because of his many friends, but most of all was because of the outdoor lifestyle. He loved hunting, trapping, fishing, riding horses, or anything to get him outdoors. Daylight on his bow stand in the October woods was his favorite time of the year, or was it springtime hunting turkeys and fishing? It’s hard to say as he loved it all. He enjoyed hunting in Colorado with his father, his uncle, and his cousins. Chris lived to be outdoors. He worked as a guide in Idaho hunting deer and elk helping others enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
Chris was kind hearted and generous to those he knew. He was well-liked in the Greenfield area: his friends nicknamed him “Skeeter” years ago and a lot of people knew him by that name. Chris loved to tell stories, some wild and crazy and some about anything and everything you could think of.
Chris wanted to be buried at Daughtrey Cemetery because his family is there, all the way to his three-time great-grandfather. He hunted around Daughtrey Cemetery and loved the peace and quiet of a small cemetery in the country. Chris felt he could rest there. His time was too short but he is at peace now.
Preceding him in death were his maternal grandparents, Raymond and Evelyn Newton.
Survivors include his mother, Jolene Newton of Coral Gables, Florida; his father, Charles “Chuck” Myers and his wife, Priscilla, of Greenfield, Missouri; his brother, Brian A. Myers and his wife, Jeong-rang of Hawaii; his sister, Amy Wheeler and her husband, Keith, of Greenfield, Missouri; his nephew, Tomas Myers; his niece, Laura Myers; his step-niece, Salina Wheeler; and his grandfather, G.D. Myers of South Greenfield, Missouri.
Graveside services were held Wednesday, June 19, 2019, in Daughtrey Cemetery. Memorial contributions can be made to Daughtrey Cemetery.
