Joshua David Meyer

April 22, 1980 ~ July 27, 2020

Joshua David Meyer, 40, of Salt Lake City, passed away unexpectedly, on July 27, 2020. Josh was the oldest of three children, born on April 22, 1980, to his parents David & Ronni Meyer. He was raised in Henderson, NV, which he always referred to as his "home". He loved the great outdoors in all seasons. He enjoyed hiking, snowboarding, and camping. Josh particularly enjoyed adventures with his two sons, Blake and Matthew, as well as his dog, Max. Josh loved music, had a great sense of humor, and was a fabulous cook. He would want everyone to remember him for the loving light he shared and only the good times he enjoyed, with so many.

He is survived by his sons, Blake Novak and Matthew Meyer; his mother Ronni (Leo Hernandez) Meyer; Brien Nicholes; Grandmothers Nadyne Meier and Edna Painter; brother Justin (Amber) Meyer; sister Nicole (Nicholas) Higgs; nieces and nephews Adilynn Higgs, Avery Higgs, Marz Meyer, Ayla Higgs and Koda Meyer; many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, girlfriend DeAnza Reyes, and countless friends.

He is preceded in death by his dad, David C. Meyer and Grandparents Ronald Painter, Charles Meyer, Ruth Meyer, and Raymond Meier.

Due to COVID restrictions, we will hold a celebration of his life at a later date, which is to be announced. In the interim, please share great memories, post pictures on his Facebook page or share them with his family.

"If I could rule the world, you know I'd love you all. If a smile could save the world, you know I'd heal you all. Burn like a wildfire, lighting up the night sky. Love is not never enough. Maybe in another life, I'll see them on the other side." -Stick Figure (One of his favorite songs.)


Though your Life here was short, Thank You for giving us Matthew. May the Happy memories of you bring bring your Family & Friends Comfort. May you Rest in the Peace & Comfort you deserve.

I miss your calls and texts, many times a day. There is just such an empty feeling I can’t explain. I hope you hear me when I talk to you and continue to argue my advice and hate how I try to control you, because that’s just our way. I love you and always will worry about you. I just want you to finally find that happiness we all wanted for you. You were loved Josh by your family and friends, I hope you felt that and still do. I just miss you so very much. Dream big dreams. Mom loves you no matter what.

Josh, I will miss the fun times we had together and you teasing me about fly fishing. Our 20 years went by to fast as I had hoped for more time. My heart is hurting knowing that I didn’t get to say goodbye to you. I will take care of your Mom & Son’s and help them on their journey in life as I know that’s what you would have wanted me to do. When Matthew, is playing baseball it will remind me of the times we went to games together and cheered him on. We have many family memories to come and you will be in our thoughts on those days. You are gone but will never be forgotten as we all grieve thinking about you and missing some of the wonderful times we all shared together. May God bless you today and always as I will be looking for you when I pass the veil one day. God be with you till we meet again.

Josh was a great friend growing up as a neighbor in Green Valley. I remember growing up through Jr High and Josh School with Josh. We would spend countless days swimming and jumping on his trampoline. Josh was always willing to share all he had with those around him. I wish the very best for his family and two boys. Danny
