He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Keith Myers; and two sisters, Mary Morton and Kathryn Prock.

J.C. worked at many trades over the years but his passion was over-the-road truck driving. He loved to fish and hunt. He enjoyed sharing that pastime with his sons as they were growing up. They and their sister spent many happy hours camping, hunting and fishing during their childhood years. He also loved playing golf, country music and corny jokes, but most of all his family. He will be greatly missed.
