Earl Myers Obituary

Earl S. Myers passed into eternity on Tuesday, November 28th, with his family at his side in the home that he built.

He was born on December 5, 1938, the eighth child of Park and Ethel Myers. He grew up in Juniata County and graduated from Greenwood High School in 1956. He graduated from Shippensburg State Teachers College in 1959 with a B.A. in Education. Earl was hired by the Newport School District where he spent his entire career. He retired in 1995 after filling multiple roles: teacher; athletic director; assistant principal; principal; and assistant superintendent. The students he crossed paths with over those many years were enriched from the experience.

Outside of school, he took on other roles during the summer recess. For several years, he worked as a carpenter building homes, including the one where he would live the rest of his life. He dabbled in real estate, buying, renovating, and leasing properties. He and his late brother Ken started a school bus transportation company. He also found the time to complete his Master's degree in Education from the Pennsylvania State University in 1974. When Earl wasn't involved in these undertakings, he and his wife Florence were busy raising two sons.

Earl was predeceased by his first wife Florence A. Myers in 1978. Earl is survived by his wife Cheryl J. Myers; his sons Larry E. and Jeffrey A. Myers; stepchildren David S. Temple and Jill T. Stine; a brother James L. Myers; a sister Jean Newman; twelve grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
