Robert ‘Bob’ Myers Jr.

Robert W. “Bob” Myers Jr., 65, of Range Road, Wadestown, departed this life Sunday (Nov. 4, 2012) surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Robert W. Myers Jr. to the late Robert W. Myers Sr. and Maxine Core Myers Shriver in Wadestown on July 20, 1947.

Bob is survived by his wife, Barbara Louise Dent Myers, whom he married Sept. 17, 1971, as well as his daughters, Mary (David) Downey of Philippi and Alisha Myers (Adam Jozwick) of Arthurdale; and one brother, Bill Myers of Washington.

Mr. Myers proudly served his country from Aug. 29, 1966 through May 30, 1972 in the U.S. Navy. He obtained the rank of engineman second class and was awarded a Bronze Star medal with Combat Distinguishing Device. Bob served in Vietnam during this time and was involved in combat with the Vietnamese on different occasions.

He was a member and trustee of West Warren Baptist Church in Wadestown.

Bob was a truck driver for Fairmont Supply Co. for 37 years. He collected Whitehouse vinegar jars and all types of glassware. His hobbies included woodworking and traveling to the Smoky Mountains. He loved to cruise around town in the “Red Dodge Truck” and watch the black smoke roll. Another pastime that he greatly enjoyed was visiting neighbors on his John Deere tractor.

Friends may call at Tennant Funeral Home in Hundred from 3-8 p.m. today. Funeral services will be held in the funeral home at 11 a.m. Wednesday with the Rev. Rose Saunders officiating. Interment will follow in Wadestown Cemetery.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
