Marvin (Marv) Lee Myers, born October 11, 1950, in Hays, Kansas, went to be with his Lord on January 15, 2015, at St. Anthony Hospital in Denver, CO. Marv is survived by his wife, Mary Myers of Firestone, CO, and his daughter, Anna Myers of San Diego, CA. He was preceded in death by his son, David Lee Myers, and by his parents, Clayton and Johanna Myers as well as parents-in-law, Carson and Gertrude Russell. Other family who survive him are: brothers Stan (Barb) Myers, Fort Collins; and Charlie (Diann) Myers, Firestone; brother-in-laws Marty (Charcie) Russell, Castle Rock and Carson Gregory Russell, Denver. Among his many other beloved family members are his nieces and nephews and their families: Kelly (Seth) Stockton; Michael Myers; Noah Myers; Matthew (Bobbiejo) Myers and Ethan; Sarah Myers; Leslie Russell Jeffries and Matthew and Taylor; Katie (Wes) Vanderheyden and Adam, Jessica, Nathan and Amber; Carson Russell and Jessica and Alyssa; John (Lyz) Russell and Miley, Mercy and Megan; Betsy (Mark) Feldmann and Abby. Tas and Kevin Frashure, Denver, CO, and their children Kelsey, Chase and Landon were Marv and Mary’s children and grandchildren “of the heart”.
Marv grew up in Hays, Kansas and was active in church, school, and sports activities. He graduated from Hays High, attended Fort Hays State and Colorado State University. Marv met Mary Russell, the love of his life, at CSU and they dated for four years before marrying on September 29, 1973, in Fort Collins, CO. He received his industrial relations degree in 1972 and was hired by Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins as the first Director of Human Resources. In 1975, Marv accepted a position in that same capacity with Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. He retired in August, 2006, as Director of Administrative Services.
Marv was an active and very loving father and husband. He enriched his life with many fun activities such as traveling, hiking, picnicking, enjoying nature, coaching sports, reading, and becoming a “foodie” like his daughter. At 56, Marv retired to further his travels with Mary and his special bond with Anna and David, as well as enjoy time with his surrogate grandchildren. He especially enjoyed volunteering and helping to build his son’s Loveland Habitat for Humanity home and exploring every inch of the Oregon Coast.
A memorial service of Marv’s wonderful life will be held at 10:00am on Friday, January 23,at Calvary Bible Church, 3245 Kalmia Avenue, Boulder, CO.
In lieu of flowers, memorials to honor Marv’s life should be sent to Loveland Habitat for Humanity, P.O. Box 56, Loveland, CO 80539. Marv was a strong believer in organ donation so making that commitment on your driver’s license would be honoring to him.

Dearest Mary. I only met you and Marvin several months ago at the Carbon Valley Rec Center. I was so shocked to hear about Marvin\'s sudden death. Just from the few conversations we had together, I could tell he was a very caring and Godly man. He shared with joy about his grandchildren and life in general. My heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family. I hope to see you again eventually.

Mary, Anna and the Frashure Five,
Originally, I thought flowers would be the perfect gesture to match the beauty & generosity that was Marv Myers.
Many a time, I would walk into Club Clermont unannounced and would run right into Marv who always greeted me with a huge smile and a big hello. I will miss that.
Habitat for Humanity makes more sense - it\'s a wonderful charity that creates a comforting, warm environment for people to dwell - again just like Marv.

The more enriched a person makes our lives, the harder it is for us to let them go. For this reason, I know that saying goodbye to Marv will be the hardest sorrow to bear. I hope that the wonderful memories you have of Marv, as well as the love and friendship you have around you, will support you through this time and help you to smile once more.

Marv and I went to the same church in Hays and were in the same class in high school. Just like everyone who knew him, I thought the world of Marvin. He had a kind heart and a beautiful, quiet smile for all of his classmates. There are just some people who share acceptance for all, and Marvin was one of them. I am truly sorry that the world will be without him. I send you my deepest condolences.
