John Arthur Myers

Date de naissance : 9 septembre 1931

Date de décès : 6 mai 2012

It is with deep sadness that we announce John’s passing on Sunday May 6 at Soldiers Memorial Hospital, Middleton, NS. The son of the late Sinclair and Beryl (MacEachern) Myers, John was born and raised in Bedford, NS. He left home in 1949 to attend the University of New Brunswick and from there began the career he loved as a “construction tramp”. He headed west and north to work in BC, Alberta and Tuktoyaktuk, NT. His expertise in planning, scheduling, estimating led to work on major hydro (earth-filled dams) and highway projects in western Canada, western USA, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Newfoundland became his second home as he worked extensively for Lundrigans Limited where he was responsible for overseas projects in Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Bermuda and Iceland. For many years prior to his retirement in 1990, he managed the Roads Construction Division and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the byways and building the highways in the province. Upon his retirement, he returned to Nova Scotia and enjoyed rural life mixed with “tramping” throughout Canada and the southern US in a small motorhome. In 2009 when living for the year in Yellowknife, he could indulge his interest in fishing and aviation and was frequently spotted at Buffalo Airways and down at the float plane docks. John was a friend of Bill W for over 40 years. John is survived by his wife Dyane Winsor Myers, his daughter Lisa Myers (Jim Murray) of Vancouver BC, his son Arthur Myers of Shubenacadie, NS, their mother Ruth Myers of Middleton NS and his granddaughter Jamie Myers Ames of Calgary AB. He leaves to mourn as well his sister Cleo Smith of Halifax, NS, his sister-in-law Stephanie (Keith) Murray, Camlachie, Ontario, nieces, nephews and numerous friends and former colleagues. Cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be made to the Lung Association of Nova Scotia, prostate cancer research and support, the Maritime Eye Clinic or the charity of your choice. A very special thank you to Dr. Grant Goodine and the staff of the third floor medical of Soldiers Memorial Hospital for their care and compassion. Arrangements have been entrusted to Middleton Funeral Home, 398 Main St., (902) 825-3448. Online Guest Book may be signed by visiting: www.middle
