Obituary of Peter Myers
With heavy hearts we say goodbye to Warren Peter Myers who passed peacefully at his home in Rothesay on December 29, 2021.
Peter will be remembered fondly by many family members and friends including his daughters, Abbey Alexander and Christiana Myers (Graeme); his loving partner Wendy Alexander; his sister, Sharon Loder of Richmond, Ontario; his brother, Raleigh Myers (Betty) of Mt. Hebron; his close friend and Christiana’s mother, Connie Archibald; his nieces and nephews, Scott Landry (Lisa), Jeff Landry (Amanda), Shelley Vail (Malcolm), Stacey Adair (Barry), Shannon Myers, David Myers (Justine); his great-nieces and nephews Emma, Parker, Syerrah, Mollahne, Denton, Lauren, Amy, Ashley, Colten, Paige, and Jaxon; his brothers and sister in-law, Peter Alexander (Margaret), Donnie Alexander (Ruth), David Alexander (Chrissy), and Lori Aiton (Harold); his mother in-law Audrey Alexander; and by his aunt, Dorothy Campbell; and uncle, Gordon Myers. Peter was predeceased by his mother Freda Snowden (Campbell), father Murray Myers, step-father Tom Snowden, and his best pal Ziggy.
Peter was born in Sussex on December 12, 1950 and enjoyed a childhood full of activity, friendships, and adventure—all of which he placed great value on the rest of his life through sports, work, community, and travel.
He was an avid sports fan and excelled in basketball, baseball, hockey, and curling, which earned him several inductions into the Sussex Sports Hall of Fame. He found his perfect balance of comradery and strategy in curling and competed for nearly 40 years, with highlights ranging from winning the National Legion Curling Championship in 1985 through to representing New Brunswick in the Canadian Senior Men’s in 2010, and at the Canadian Master’s in 2011, and qualifying again in 2016.
Emotionally and physically strong, Peter showed he cared for his loved ones through lending a hand. Whether it was using his skills as a contractor to help someone around their property, loading something onto his truck, plowing out neighbours with his tractor, picking up a hitchhiker and taking them to their destination, or changing a stranger's tire on the highway, he never hesitated to help someone in need.
His quiet kindness, steadfast work ethic, and untiring curiosity allowed him to touch the lives of many people, and most of all made him a great friend, a loving partner, and a wonderful father. He enjoyed many trips over the years including to Boston, Expo 67, the 2012 Olympics in London, as well as ski trips that he got to experience with both of his daughters. He also took great pride in driving Abbey and her horses to Ontario for competitions and visiting Christiana during her graduation in Scotland.
Peter was a committed due-paying member of Royal Canadian Legion Branch #69 and of Thistle Saint Andrew’s Curling Club in Saint John.
In lieu of flowers, Peter and his family have requested that donations be sent to the Sweet Caroline Foundation, to the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation’s robotic surgery campaign, or to the Thistle St. Andrew’s Curling Club to go toward the ice plant. Peter had a passion for good ice and would be happy to have contributed to making the game better for his fellow curlers and in welcoming newcomers to the game.
