William Myers

A private family service will be held in Southern California for William “Bill” D. Myers. Mr. Myers passed away May 23 at home in Powers, Ore. He was 74.

Mr. Myers was born Aug. 28, 1932.

During his adult life, he was a Los Angeles County fireman and a veteran of the Korean War. Between 1969 and 1984, Mr. Myers owned Myers RV Center in Grass Valley.

Mr. Myers was, above all, an avid fisherman. If you were a friend or family member, you went fishing with Mr. Myers at least once and usually many more times than that. One of his favorite sayings was, ” I’m sorry, I thought you could fish.” Most will remember his sarcastic but humorous wit: quick, sharp and, usually, funny.

Mr. Myers is survived by his former wife of 25 years, Luella; sons Mark and Jim of Grass Valley, Jeffrey of Yucaipa and Jack of Cotati; daughter, Janis of Camarillo; 13 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; sister, Francis of Calistoga; and brothers Chuck and Johnny Myers of Grass Valley.

Mr. Myers touched a lot of lives while raising his family in Nevada County and will be missed immensely by his family and friends.
