Seth Myatt was “witty,” an avid reader and member of the EKU Men’s Rugby Team. He was one of 10 children and played football through high school.

The 21-year-old, junior, forestry major from Simpsonville died Jan. 23.

Seth Myatt’s youngest sister, Olivia Myatt, 19, finance major at the University of Louisville, said Seth Myatt was known for his intellect and sarcasm.

“He always said anything to make people laugh,” Olivia Myatt said.

Seth Myatt’s oldest sister, Amber Myatt, 37, said Seth Myatt would also be remembered for his sense of humor.

“Everything had to be funny,” Amber Myatt said. “He was just a fun loving guy.”

Amber and Olivia Myatt both said Seth Myatt was very intelligent and always reading.

He graduated from Shelby County High School with high honors.

“He was always a really good student,” Amber Myatt said. “He was one of those students that everything just came to him, he didn’t have to work at it.”

His sisters also remember him for always sharing random facts about life.

In addition to his humor, Olivia Myatt described Seth Myatt as a caring person who was true to himself.

“He was really genuine,” she said. “He would go out of his way for anyone.”

A favorite memory Amber Myatt has of her brother is one that includes his love of dinner rolls.

She said Seth Myatt would make a hole in his dinner roll and put all his food inside it.

“We used to always joke about it,” Amber Myatt said. “It was Seth’s hole in the roll. I used to always tell him we were going to open a restaurant and call it Seth’s hole in a roll.”

His parents Donita and Ronnie Myatt, nine siblings and 13 nieces and nephews survive Seth Myatt.

Services were held Jan. 28 at Shannon Funeral Home in Shelbyville.

“He was a great person, and he’s going to be missed by lots of people,” Olivia Myatt said.
