Peter Marshall Styer, 32, respiratory therapist, drummer, fly fisherman, WPC youth minister
Peter Marshall Styer, 32, of Ephrata, died unexpectedly of natural causes Saturday, April 12, 2014, at Ephrata Community Hospital.
A devoted husband and father, he was married seven-and-a-half years to Melissa Sue Styer. Born in Ephrata, he was the son of Gerald L. and Marjorie (Logue) Styer of Brownstown.
Peter graduated from Conestoga Valley High School in 2000 and Lancaster General College of Nursing and Health Sciences in 2013. He was employed by Lancaster General Hospital as a respiratory therapist. He was an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church where he was involved in children and youth ministries.
Peter fully embraced life, greatly enjoying all he did. He was an avid reader, fly fisherman and talented drummer. He joyfully shared his outdoor and musical skills with others. But most of all, Peter loved his Savior Jesus Christ and his family.

Also surviving are his brother: Andrew, husband of Heidi Styer of Ephrata; mother and father-in-law: George and Sharon Styer of Sinking Springs; three nieces; a nephew; three sisters-in-law; two brothers-in-law and a large extended family. He was well-loved and loved others well.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents: John and Dorothy Logue; and paternal grandparents: Horace and Kathryn Styer.
