Myles Dean Byers was a beloved husband, father, and dedicated worker. He passed away on January 26, 2024. Born on July 13, 1989, Myles lived a life filled with passion and purpose. His passing leaves behind a void that will forever be felt by his family, friends, and the Logan City community.
Myles' career was an integral part of his life. He worked for the Logan City Parks Department as a heavy equipment operator on the construction crew. His love for his work was apparent to all who knew him. Myles took great pride in his job and found joy in seeing the tangible results of his efforts around town. His work ethic was unmatched, and he cherished the camaraderie he shared with his colleagues.
Education played a role in Myles' journey. After graduating from Bountiful High School in 2008, he pursued Wildlife Biology at Utah State University. During the summers, he also worked for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, gaining valuable hands-on experience in his field of study. He later attended the Police Academy at Bridgerland Technical College, where he graduated in 2015.
Myles was not only an exceptional professional but also an extraordinary individual. He possessed qualities that endeared him to everyone he met. A truly good man, Myles cared deeply about others and demonstrated loyalty beyond measure. Honesty and faithfulness were at the core of his being.
Beyond his professional pursuits, Myles had a deep love for adventure and spending time outdoors. Off-roading vehicles became both his hobby and means of exploring the mountains—the place he considered his second home. He relished every opportunity to dive into nature's embrace and discover hidden wonders along winding side roads. Additionally, Myles found immense joy in dedicating his spare time to his cherished family. Whether it was working together on yard projects, embarking on rides on 4-wheelers, or unforgettable family trips, his devotion to his loved ones shone through.
However, Myles' proudest accomplishments were being a loving father to his two children, Hadlie and Boone Byers. He embraced fatherhood with an unwavering commitment and reveled in every precious moment spent with his little ones. The bond they shared was immeasurable and will forever live on in their hearts.
Myles leaves his wife, Audrey Byers, who shared the joys and challenges of life together. Their love formed the foundation of their family's strength. Hadlie and Boone Byers will forever carry their father's legacy in their hearts.
In addition to his immediate family, Myles is survived by his mother, Terry Byers, and his father, Charles Byers. He also leaves behind three siblings: Kirk Byers (Shannon, their daughter Sage), Loren Byers (Jamie Eberly), and Jijette Wood (Chris Wood and their children Michael, Steven and Danica)
Myles Dean Byers will be remembered as a dedicated worker, a devoted husband, an exceptional father, and a cherished friend. His legacy of hard work and integrity will continue to inspire those who knew him. As we bid farewell to this remarkable man, let us hold onto the memories we have shared with him tightly.
