Paul Eugene Myers
11/5/1947 to 12/21/2023

Paul Myers departed his loving family on Thursday, December 21, 2023, after a brief illness. He passed peacefully, surrounded by family.

Paul was born in Lincoln, Nebraska on November 5, 1947, to Mason A. and Helen L. (White) Myers. Paul was husband and companion to Sandy, and father to Debra, Troy, and Trent. Paul and Sandy raised their children with love and care in Lincoln, Nebraska. They were happily married for 58 years.

Paul grew up and lived in Lincoln all his life. He attended Lincoln Northeast High School, where he met and fell in love with Sandy Arnold. They both agreed it was love at first sight. They were married on November 2, 1964, in Tallahassee Florida. They graduated from Lincoln Adult Education High School in 1966.

Paul loved bowling, camping, traveling, and birdwatching. In the late 1990s, Paul and Sandy purchased 60 acres near Raymond. The entire family loved to gather at “the farm” for holidays, birthdays, and to fish or canoe. Sleepovers at Grandpa and Grandma’s were a favorite for the grandkids.

After retirement, they made cross-country trips in their camper and joined a camping group. They took a three-week tour of Alaska by plane, train, boat, and auto. They spent several weeks touring Europe. Paris and Rome were Paul’s favorites. He never got to take his long-desired trip to Ireland due to Covid.

He was preceded in death by his wife, mother, and father. He is survived by sister Connie Davis (Ron) of Columbus TX, and children Debra Cosgrove (Jeffrey), Troy Myers (Sandra), and Trent Myers (Holly) all of Lincoln. Paul has eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren with another due in April.

  1. Paul, Sandy and Deb were favorites at the Aging Partners fitness center. We all loved to see them come in as a family in their combined commitment to fitness. Their beloved dog Lucky would often accompany them, so Peggy our program coordinator always kept a jar of treats in her office.
    Paul was soft spoken, kind and committed to his family. Thanks to Deb and the families for the love and support they gave to Sandy and Paul as they progressed through their health changes.
    I know your happy memories of a loving mother and father will sustain you.
    God bless all of you.

  2. Paul led a life well-lived. He will be missed by so many friends and family. I will always remember his quick wit and thoughtfulness. He was a devoted family man and a beloved brother-in-law.

  3. We enjoyed being neighbors and friends of Sandy and Paul. Our daughter Becky had fun times with Deb. They are good friends.
