Gary Oliver Myers peacefully slipped into eternal rest at his home surrounded by his family after a long, brave battle with cancer on Thursday, April 18th.

He is survived by his lifelong sweetheart and wife of 50 years, Sandra Jean Wise Myers; his son, Scott Myers, daughter-in-law, Rhonda and grandson, Noah of Charleston, SC.
Gary’s love of aircraft led him to his dream of becoming a professional pilot. Gary first soloed in a Piper J-3 Cub from a grass field in Ohio when he was 16 and went on to graduate from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. He served his country in the United States Air Force Reserves and retired from Delta Airlines after 32 years of service.
Gary was preceded in death by his parents and infant daughters Julianne and Maribeth Myers.

Ron Stowe asked me to let those on my email list know that our friend and comrade Gary Myers died this morning. The family is gathering and will announce details about his funeral ASAP. Services probably not until Monday or Tuesday. Little and Davenport is handling the arrangements. His obit will list details. This mailing list of mine is old, so feel free to spread the word. I'm sure the Delta Net will do the same. Thanks.
