Eugene E. Myers, 89 of Westerville passed peacefully April 10, 2021.
Born in Clyde, Ohio, March 16, 1932 to Lester and Thelma (Creeger) Myers, Gene was the eldest of three sons.
A proud US Navy veteran serving aboard the USS Kaskaskia AO-27 during the Korean War. Gene had worked in the meat department at Kroger for 47 years, retiring from the Westerville Kroger. He had formerly attended the McKendree United Methodist Church in Columbus, before transferring to the Church of the Messiah in Westerville. A huge OSU Football fan, he was a member of the Quarterback Club. HO scale railroading and gardening were among his favorite hobbies. An Honor Flight to Washington DC and US Naval Tiger Cruises with his brother aboard his nephew's ships were personal highlights.
Survivors include his wife of 64 years, Doris (Wilson) Myers, daughter Linda (Hugh) Fredendall, brother George (Marty) Myers, sister in law Barbara Myers and several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Jim Myers.
Private graveside services will be held at the convenience of the family in Riverside Cemetery, Columbus.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials in Gene’s name be directed to either the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org or Kindred Hospice.
