The last 10 years prior to retirement, he was co-founder of Mycon General Contractors with his son Charlie Myers. Dad will always be remembered for his humor at life’s challenges and his upbeat and positive take on all that life dishes out. Those who knew him knew that they could count on him to cheer them up and root them on, especially when the chips were down. He was a dear friend to all. Dad was an avid golfer and enjoyed playing at Canyon Creek Country Club. He was also a very accomplished bridge player. He and wife Mary Ann had been in the same bridge group for over 30 years. The family is grateful to all his friends and especially those from St. Michael’s Hospice who helped him fight the good fight. He will be dearly missed. May God be kind to our beloved Dad, Husband, and old friend. Peace be with you, dear Dad.
