RANGELY | Dr. Kenneth Myers is a third-generation Colorado native born in Denver. His wife, Jenine, was born and raised in nearby Vernal, Utah. It appears both are quite happy to have settled somewhere in between, in Rangely.
Kenneth, a dentist, moved from the Denver area to Rangely 24 years ago. He bought his current dental practice from Dr. Michael McBride.
Jenine moved to Rangely about 20 years ago. The two met when she became a dental hygienist in his dental practice, where she has worked since 1998 except for “when we had a couple of kids — they kind of got in the way of her working here,” he said. She is back at work in the practice.
In fact, Kenneth said, “I truly believe we were the first non-family members to get married up at Bud Striegel’s Campbell Creek Ranch. That’s kind of special because many hundreds, if not more, people have been married at the ranch since that time.”
The Myers’ have two children. Daughter Paityn is in seventh grade and son Keihlin is in fourth grade.
Regarding volunteer service to the community, he has donated time to be a shotgun instructor for 4-Hers in the area.
“Both of us really enjoy recreational and competitive shooting,” Kenneth said.
In their spare time the couple enjoys camping and four-wheeling, just about everything outdoors, he said.
Kenneth said that what he and Jenine really enjoy most about Rangely is “the access to the outdoors.”
“I must say I think the people here are great and it is a wonderful place to raise a family,” he said.
One of the special events in his life was becoming an Eagle Scout, and he said he still enjoys occasional involvement with the Boy Scouts.
