John Meyers Obituary
John Edwin Meyers, MD Resident of San Mateo Passed away on Oct. 23, 2012. He is survived by his loving and caring wife, Susan Neal Meyers, his three children John Kim Meyers, MD; Tony Meyers, PE; Rebecka Meyers, MD. He has six grandchildren: Andrea, John, Michelle, Madison, Matt, and Savanna. John was born 1929 and raised in Lehi, Utah. After serving an LDS Mission in Australia, he graduated from BYU with a degree in chemistry, and then with honors from University of Utah School of Medicine in 1958. He had an illustrious military career. Following an early stint in the Navy, he became a Flight Surgeon in the Air Force, and retired from the California Air National Guard as a Brigadier General after 39 years of service. John's medical specialties were Aerospace Medicine, and later Occupational and Preventive Medicine. In this specialty he worked for US Steel, IBM, as Chief Medical Officer for Southern Pacific Railroad, and retired from NASA in 2009. Following 50 years of medical practice, he continued to volunteer his services at the Good Samaritan medical clinic in San Mateo, CA. John was an exceptional athlete and a four sport letterman in high school and college. He continued as an avid tennis player and skier throughout his life. Fishing held a special place in his life and golf was always pulling at him. He had a beautiful voice, spent time with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and impromptu singing was frequently enjoyed. Most of all he loved to travel, visiting 50 states and 70 countries in 27 different military aircraft. He loved flying backseat in our nation's fighter aircraft. He has now flown to a new destination, and we wish him Godspeed. Funeral service will be held Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Sneider & Sullivan & O'Connell's, 977 S. El Camino Real, San Mateo, CA. 94402, (650) 343-1804, followed by a reception. And a remembrance service will follow in Lehi, Utah next spring, Memorial Day, 2013.
