Harold Lewis Myers


Harold Lewis Myers, age 83,  died unexpectedly Saturday afternoon, October 25, 2014 at his residence and with his loving family.

Harold, the son of John and Violet (Knauss) Myers, was born on July 28, 1931 in Battle Creek, MI; was a lifetime area resident and a 1949 graduate of Hastings High School. He retired in 1986 as a Production Supervisor for Post Division of General Foods after 36 years of faithful service; was a member of the Post 25 Year Club and farmed most of his life.  Harold was an avid hunter and fisherman and thoroughly enjoyed his pond and deer blind on his property.  He was always in his garden or mowing his yard, both to perfection and with his constant companion, "Red Beer," his can of Coke.

Harold was united in marriage to the former Marilyn Dorothy Moan on August 18, 1951 in the Maple United Methodist Church of Battle Creek and she sadly preceded him in death on November 8, 1993.  Surviving are three daughters, Dorothy A. (the late David) Houtstra of Hudsonville, MI, Dolores J. (Jim) Garland of Dowling and Joyce E. (Steve) Stringer of Battle Creek; two sons, James L. "Jim" (Cindy) Myers of Battle Creek and Robert H. "Bob" (Carolyn) Myers of Dowling; thirteen grandchildren; ten great grandchildren; his sister, Darlene Babcock of Portage, MI and several nieces and nephews.  Harold was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers, Nelson, Kenneth and Willard Myers.

The Funeral Service to celebrate Harrold's life will be held on Thursday, October 30th at 11:00 a.m. at the Farley-Estes & Dowdle Funeral Home, Battle Creek, with the Rev. Dr. Gerard L. Spoor, Pastor of the West Leroy Bible Church, officiating.  Interment will follow at Union Cemetery in Lacey, MI.  Harold's family will receive friends on Wednesday, October 29th from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
