PINEDALE, WYO – Sublette County authorities are reporting the death of a well-known employee of the planning and zoning department. Bart Myers was found Monday, June 5, slumped over in the driver’s seat of a vehicle between Skyline Street and Pinedale East Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene of an apparent heart attack.
Myers has been the Sublette County planner for the for the past 11 years. According to a press release issued by the county Sheriff’s Office, Myers had just recently acquired a Wyoming sheep tag and was working out daily to get in shape for the upcoming hunt. Myers was dressed in workout attire and had a Fitbit-style watch on his wrist which indicated he had gone 4.3 miles as of June 5.
From what authorities can gather, it appears Myers was returning home from his daily workout to change back into his dress clothes when he experienced some type of critical event. The vehicle Myers was driving left the roadway and came to rest on a small pile of gravel.
No foul play is suspected. An autopsy has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 7 in Fort Collins, Colorado, which is standard protocol to help determine cause of death.
Myer’s wife said that Bart loved his job and he loved the people he worked with. The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend their deepest condolences to the Myers family.
Services will be held at the Community Church, 113 South Maybell, on Monday, June 12 at 2:00 pm.
