ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Rick Myers, 69 years old, born on February 12, 1952, and passed away on May 1, 2021. We will remember him forever.
A loving husband and friend, always there for a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen to, and a hug when needed. He will be missed but will always be in our hearts.

I met Rick while we were both working for a company, in what turned out to be the final leg of our long careers in telecommunications. Shared many really fine times with Rick and our cohorts both here in the U.S. and abroad. He was so knowledgable and practical, and always willing to share his knowledge. Rest in Peace Good Friend!

It's been a month since Rick has passed and I miss him so much. He was a loving husband and a amazing friend. He always had an easy smile and a hug ready when needed. Always ready to tell a joke or listen to a problem. He was a great man.

So I met Rick and Ashley at the beer bar that I used to work at back in 2018. Unlike a lot of patrons, they genuinely cared about me as a person and what was going on in my life at the time, nothing was superficial. Rick seemed to be set in his ways about his beer preference but little by little I was able to introduce him to new styles and varieties. This casual bar acquaintance turned into a true and meaningful friendship. Rick, for me, became an older brother who shared his wisdom and life experiences with me. I have met very few people in my life that I have connected with so easily and on such a deep level.  I miss Rick immensely and the impact he had on me will last my lifetime.

I have so many memories of Rick, but the one I will treasure most is his infectious smile. He had the most beautiful, mischievous smile ever. I will miss Rick and the laughter and joy he brought into this world. Love you, Rick. Hugs to you Ashley.

So sorry to hear if Rick's passing. Last saw him in 2019 when he hosted myself and Kent in Bellevue. Always had time for other people and always knew the right places to eat and the right bars. Over the years working with Rick was a real pleasure and he will be very much missed. A real gent.

It is after midnight on May 5th, I cannot sleep. I am thinking about my friend Rick Myers. Reflecting on what an incredible person he was and how I will miss him.
I met Rick through Ashley, she and I met at UNLV and became fast friends. She soon introduced us. From then on Rick and I hit it off. I have never been much of a foodie, meat and potatos were my mainstay. Rick was a food adventuer,willing to try almost anything. Whenever I was with Rick, either at his house or out somewhere he would always push me to try something different...I now, because of him, can enjoy sushi and something from pigs, not ham. Rick was always there to talk to, whether it was to console, encourage, bust my chops, or just joke around, he was there. Ricks opinion or advice was always valued and almost always spot on...there was this time he thought I should get involved in the Bigfoot community. We enjoyed guns together and whenever we could we would go to the range, or have long discussions about firearms.
He told me many times how much he truly loved Ashley and how very lucky he was to have her as his wife and best friend.
I can say fair 'seas and trailing winds-, I will see you again, cout on it. Until then know that I was proud to call you my friend, a very small group.
I love you buddy

I met Rick over 35 years ago while I was with Gabriel, we ere both competing for the same customers, but somehow found a way to put aside our business relationships and formed a long lasting friendship. We lost touch with each other, but over the last several years we both worked for the same company. Rick was an OUTSTANDING person who was an intelligent, caring, sincere person, who would always help people without question or hesitation. 

I will always miss him!!!, but I know we will see each other again in the spiritual world!

RIP-my friend

Rick and I worked closely together with sales responsibility for the largest Telecom Companies in the country. He was a good friend and an associate who I always admired. Ashley was the love of his life and we had the pleasure of meeting her with Rick many years ago. I can honestly say that Rick was always the kindest friend and a very thoughtful man. We had big plans to go camping last year, but then the pandemic started and I regret that we could not get together. Rick left us too soon. The world was better with him in it. RIP my friend.

I worked with Rick for many years at several companies. We shared many laughs, conversations and memories. Traveled extensively with Rick and it was always an adventure. Was lucky to have had Rick in my life and the opportunity to meet Ashley and follow her career through Ricks updates. He is missed. A truly fine person and friend. However, he does owe me money :)

I am grateful to have known Rick. He was one of my husbands best friends and I came to know and love him too. In our 27 years of friendship, Rick encouraged and supported both David and me though good times and hard. No matter how long in between contact it was like no time had passed when we got together. We had the best philosophical discussions. Some of my favorite memories with Rick involve just sitting at Buffalo Bills having a good beer, great food, and hours of amazing conversation. He will be truly missed! ❤️

Rick was a very important part of my life many years ago. He moved to Denver and started on his many adventures, but we never lost touch (which was a good thing because I never knew where he would be living next.) He will always hold a special place in my heart and I will miss his texts. RIP Ricky.

Rick was my life long friend and my cousin. My mind is running through all the great times we shared. Beautiful memories. I loved him and I will miss him.

Rick was my true love and best friend. He may be gone but our time together has made me a better and stronger person. He will be missed but never forgotten.

his Life

San Francisco Trip

December 1999 was the first time I had ever been to San Francisco.I flew from Denver to spend the week with Rick. At the time, he lived in a cute condo in Castro Valley. This was the first real trip that we had done together. He always flew to Denver to see me.
He took me to all his favorite places and it seemed we walked all the streets in downtown. He was a wonderful tour guide and through his eyes I fell in love with San Francisco.
Before flying out to San Fran, we made a bet about who the voice of Grinch was, and the person who was wrong had to cook the meal of choice for the person who was right. Needless to say Rick was wrong (hehehe), and he had to cook me Dijon Chicken, steamed asparagus, and honey poached pear for dessert. That home cooked meal had me falling in love with Rick! That man could cook! Although, instead of honey poached pear, Rick opened a can of Del Monte pears and put the can on the plate with a spoon. I had a good laugh at that, and they were pretty good pears

My first friend

I met Rick on my first bicycle ride in Harmeson Heights. I was riding down the street and he came tearing across the yard on his bike to intercept me. We ended up in his garage eating bologna sandwiches and drinking grape cool ade. I was nine and he was seven. We became fast friends and shared many adventures and misadventures over the years in the neighborhood. Big Rick, RIP my old friend and thanks for all the great times we shared as kids. 

Rick fulfilling a promise (his way

Shared by Ashley Berkebile on May 4, 2021
Over the years Rick and I have lived in many places. We always decided to make the move to a new place into a road trip. When we talked ourselves into moving to Kansas City from Seattle (not the best choice), we decided to visit the 2 big national parks (Yellowstone and Glacier). 
I wanted to see a moose so bad, and Rick being Rick, promised me that he would make sure I saw one. I thought, "Rick must have some kind of moose whispering skills". We made it to each park and never saw a moose, which was a bummer, but it happens.
As we continued on to Kansas City, I forgot all about the moose. About 20 miles outside Kansas City, Rick pulls into Cabela's. When I asked why we were stopping, he said "you'll see". Totally confused, I followed him into the store having no idea what was happening. And what does Rick do? He walks over to a stuffed moose, looks at me and says "here's your moose, want a picture with it?" 
I just stood there and looked at Rick with a look of WTF! He smiled and said, "I promised you a moose, you can't say I didn't deliver". I could't argue with that.
