Obituary, James Earl Myers
It is with a heavy heart, that the family of James Earl Myers of Riviera Beach, Md. announce his sudden passing. James was born on August 22, 1943 in Baltimore, Md. and passed away peacefully on February 13, 2019 at the Charlotte Hall Veteran’s home, with daughter, Julie, by his side.
James is predeceased by his parents, Albert C. Myers, Sr. and Norma S. Myers (nee Harold) of Riviera Beach, Md. He is survived by his loving daughter, Julie Ann Myers of San Diego, Ca., his brother A. Charles Myers, Jr. and sister Renea Skovron both of Riviera Beach, Md, along with many loved extended family members in the Maryland area.
He served honorably in the US Navy during the Vietnam War from 1962 to1964 and was later employed by Truck Co. 21 of the Baltimore City Fire Department from 1968 to 1988. James had a generous spirit and loved telling great stories of years gone by. He enjoyed: going to the race track, American History shows, visiting casinos with his daughter all over the country, and in his younger years was an avid outdoorsman. James was always known for his beautiful singing voice and performances at many a karaoke night. Lyrics from one of his favorite songs by Lynyrd Skynyrd tell his story, “Big wheels keep on turning, carry me home to see my kin…Sweet Home Alabama, Lord I’m coming home to you…”
