Brian Myers Obituary

Brian, "Coach Myers," "Big Brian" Myers, passed away peacefully in his home on November 13, 2015, after a long, courageous battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, otherwise known as ALS.

Brian was born on November 5, 1955 in York, Pa. to his parents, Luther and Phyllis Myers. He joined the United States Air Force on December 1, 1975, where he served our country as a Jet Engine Mechanic, for six years. After leaving the military, he attended New Mexico State University, where he received a bachelor's degree in education in the spring of 1988. Brian went on to teach science and physical education and also coached baseball and basketball. Coach Myers was a patient and supportive teacher and coach with a passion for learning. He was a leader and real motivator, someone who said what he meant and meant what he said. He had a great sense of humor that endeared him to the kids and helped create some of their best high school memories.

Big Brian also had a heart for music. He loved rock and roll and played in several bands. You could always find him with a smile on his face playing his base guitar for the Cowboy Mafia, The Mix and The Worship Center. Big B also loved going to the gym, he used that as a stress relief and always took care of himself. He competed in many bodybuilding shows and was proud of his bodybuilding accomplishments. He also had a passion for corvettes and founded the White Sands Corvette Club in 2000.

Brian is survived by his parents, Luther and Phyllis Myers, his son Stephen Myers; daughter and son-in-law, Bernadette and Michael Law; daughter and son-in-law Casi Myers and Andrew Fisher; son and daughter-in-law Corey Myers and Ayana Robinson; his three brothers Ben, Brad and Bruce Myers. Brian had six grandchildren, all girls, Emily, Claire and Natalie Myers; Michaela and Maicy Law; and Kaydence Fisher.

A memorial service will take place on Monday Nov. 23, 2015 at 2 p.m. at the Worship Center located at 801 10th Street in Alamogordo, N.M., followed by a rock band concert in honor of Brian at the American Legion Post 34, immediately following the memorial. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Mr. Myers' life.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Angie Walsh, Jennifer Murray, Maryann Sandefur, Joanne Blummenthal, and Doris Kelly for their exceptional hospice care of our dad. It was because of each of you, that he stayed comfortable and his final wishes were honored. On behalf of our family and friends, we thank you!

Your time was too short here with me
I'll never forget your voice
Your suffering has ended at last
And now we will rejoice

I'll remember you as you were
Not what ALS did to you
A strong and warm father
Beginning eternal life, anew

I'm thankful for what you have given me
Strength, Rhythm and eyes
Eyes blue and crystal clear
That now look up to you in the skies

There's a badass bass guitar up there
Tuned up and ready to play
I'll join you with a microphone
After I have lived my last day
