Mr. Myers was one of the nicest men I have met. I work for Deibler Insurance and he would come into our office frequently and he would always tell us jokes. He will truly be missed.

 I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Myers as a customer and friend.  Every time I saw him it would brighten my day.  I will never forget him leaning in and asking if he could tell me a "not so clean" joke (they were not too dirty for the record).  He will truly be missed.
