Brandon Kirk "Radar" Myers

June 8, 1976 ~ October 12, 2018 (age 42)

Brandon Kirk “Radar” Myers, 42, passed into the arms of our savior on Friday, October 12, 2018 at St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville. He was born on June 8, 1976 in Oakland City, IN to Linda D. (Miskell) Myers and Kirk M. Myers. His early years were spent in Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis overcoming many obstacles. He lived a full and active life, never letting anything slow him down. He graduated from Princeton Community High School in 1995, where he was an avid Tiger fan and supporter. That love of the Tigers never waned, and he continued to work for and support the school and sports he loved. He was employed by Save-a-Lot in Princeton for 18 years where he was a dedicated and dependable stock clerk.

Brandon and Jennifer Elaine Smith were married on June 20, 2009, in the United Presbyterian Church in front of family and friends. He and Jennifer attended New Life Church of the Nazarene of Princeton. Their lives were busy and full of love. Brandon’s life revolved around his love for the Princeton Tigers. That love and dedication was rewarded when he was nominated and appointed to the Greater Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame in October of 2017. He was so proud when he became a PCHS Varsity Baseball Assistant Coach and was able to contribute to the success of the school, coaches and teams. He loved what he did.

Brandon was preceded in death by his parents, Linda and Kirk Myers; his grandparents, Bill and Lee Myers and Charles and Helen Miskell; and 3 special uncles, Steve Myers and Larry and Mark Miskell.

Brandon is survived by his loving wife, Jennifer Elaine (Smith) Myers; his brother, Zachary Myers (Misty) of Patoka; his in-laws, Steven and Cynthia Schrodt and Mark Smith, all of Princeton; brothers-in-law, David J. Smith (Celia) of Indianapolis and Thad Smith (Bryna) of Princeton. He is also survived by his godsons, Will and Jacob Clevenger; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
