Our dear friend Wesley R. Myers passed away Sunday, February 25, 2018 at the age of 70. A life long native, he was born to Milburn and Mae (Papke) Myers on January 1, 1948.

He finished his education with an associate degree from MSU.

His two passions in life were music and model railroading. His mother being a piano teacher, was his gateway to music. Wes was an accomplished pianist, inspired by the classic composers. He wrote a handful of compositions and performed them locally over the years. Jazz and the old standards were also part of his repertoire. A huge satisfaction came from performing on the Ellen Theater organ during the holidays and special events. As a janitor at the Ellen, he also assumed the position of historian and curator, often giving spontaneous tours to curious passersby. The old theater organ was a labor of love to keep it in playable condition and he invested many hours in its upkeep and repair.

As far as trains are concerned, he along with some very close friends built and operated miniature scale trains capable of carrying passengers. To the delight of children and adults, the train operated at local venues such as the Gallatin Winter Fair, Christmas Stroll, and its last location on North East Cottonwood Ave. Wes studied the history of railroading especially pertaining to Montana. His favorite line was the Northern Pacific and over the years he collected many books and memorabilia on the subject.

Wes also enjoyed photography and the simple pleasure of conversation with anyone and everyone. He always had time to visit.
