Allen Lee Myers went to his heavenly home on April 30th, 2020. He was born in Lewisburg, PA in 1948, and moved to Arizona with his family in 1959. He was a devout Lutheran, a Viet Nam Veteran proud of his service to his country, an avid golfer and a die-hard Diamondback’s fan. He loved his Lord and his family. One of his favorite things was to spend time supporting his children and grandchildren in their various activities and interests. His love of travel took him to many parts of the world where he discovered his love of photography.
Allen is survived by his wife, Debbie; two daughters – Jennifer Myers, Heather Vickers (Brian), one son – Kevin Myers, 7 grandchildren – Cecelia, Molly, Tres, Breanne, Lily, Leah and Charlie, his mother – Anna May, one sister – Edith Toles (David), and one brother – Mark Myers (Kathy). He was preceded in death by his father – Charles “Charlie” Myers.
Bearing in mind the current unusual circumstances with the “Stay-at-Home” mandate , memorial services have been placed on hold, and will be determined at a later date. Taking this into consideration and in lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations be made to Pilgrim Ev. Lutheran Church at the following link: www.pilgrimmesa.com.
Oh my so many memories…from the family get togethers, seeing him at church, and playing softball. Allen loved life, and God. Grateful for the lifelong memories that were created. I will truly treasure them. Condolences to Debbie, Jenn, Charlie and the rest of the family!

Esteemed colleague, dear friend… you’ll always hold a special place in my heart. Miss you already
Very sorry he was a wonderful man
To the family, you have my deepest sympathy and condolences. I had the privilege to have known Allen for many years; at church and on the golf course. It’s on the golf course that I got see a different side of Allen. Let’s just say that Allen was a very intense golfer; which is why I think Charlie Kuether put Allen and I in the same golf cart. On one occasion, actually more than one, Allen was having a tough day on the course, as we all do from time to time. A club came sailing towards the golf cart. Allen did apologize. On the way to the next tee box, I asked Allen if we are getting paid to play. He said no, and I said then just have fun. Allen taught me to always strive to do my best, and I hope you all feel the same. I hope that in some small way I was able to instill calm and ease for Allen, at least on the golf course. He will truly be missed.
So sorry for your loss! Loved him at church, praying for you all in this difficult time.
I partnered often with Alan at the charity golf tournament. On one occasion, Alan found himself in a sand trap. The ball flew out, struck
The flagpole and dropped straight down into the cup. Alan shook his head in disbelief and said, “Damn… I was just trying to get out!”
God has taken you home. Your work on earth is done. The love you’ve shared…with the many who’ve cared…will be held in our hearts…the chapters and the parts. Your mustached smile … pictured in the mind. Lord willing, we’ll be there soon…not far behind. Love from your friends, Geoff & Karen
Over a period of several decades, I was privileged to know Allen as a father, church leader, and true friend. Through these relationships it was clear that this wonderful man knew he was a sinner saved by
God’s amazing grace.
I will miss the coffee talk and not having Allen with us when we head out for adventure golf to torture another golf course, but am so comforted to know his pain is gone and he is with our Savior in his heavenly home.
Allen will be greatly missed in many ways, and we keep his wonderful family in our thoughts and prayers,
Charlie and Hilda Kuether
I knew Allen for many years, and did a lot of work with him for the Lord at Pilgrim. His love of Jesus was clearly shown in his actions and willingness to always pitch in when needed. He had tremendous energy, it is hard to believe he has moved on, but he is now in his eternal home where we will see him again someday. I have many memories of Pioneer camp outs where Allen worked hard to provide fun and educational times for the children.
Allen will be missed, we keep his family in our prayers.

To all who took the time to share thoughts and memories: Just in case you may not have heard, we are moving forward with Allen’s “Celebration of Life” service at Pilgrim Lutheran Church. Please visit their website at http://www.pilgrimmesa.com on the Calendar tab for June. Thank you for all your kind words and wonderful memories!
From all of us at Shaffer’s Welding our deepest condolences. We have had the honor of not only working side by side with Allen’s Dad Charlie but also Allen for 40+ years. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. Allen always had great stories and I loved listening to his travel adventures. Every time he would come into my office we always talked about the next adventure he or I had planned and always compared notes on the trips we were planning. We talked long and hard for many years about our children and grandchildren and Allen always had great advise for me. I will miss our conversations.
My deepest sympathy for the loss of Allen. Prayers for your family
