DENNIS W. MYERS
On Thursday, February 6, 2014, Dennis W. Myers passed away at the Woodbine Rehabilitation and Health Care facility in Alexandria, VA. His dearly departed parents were Arthur and Kathryn Myers, also of Alexandra. Dennis is survived by his sister Frances Myers, brother Clyde Myers, and brother-in-law Dwayne Lovell, in addition to many cousins and other relatives.
Dennis was born in Pennsylvania in 1941. After many moves to several states, he and his family settled in Northern Virginia in 1964. In 1965, Dennis started work as a Mail Clerk for the Federal Government in the offices of the Security and Exchange Commission, where he worked for over 40 years. During the Carter Administration, Dennis received an award for one of the Most Outstanding Federal Handicapped Employees, presented to him by Rosslyn Carter.
One of Dennis' favorite past times was to put together jig saw puzzles and he completed hundreds of them in his lifetime, some of which were in the thousands of pieces. He also enjoyed going to the beach every year with his family, and in his retirement, visited almost every monument and museum in the metropolitan area.
Memorial services will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 15 at the Heritage United Presbyterian Church, 8503 Fort Hunt Road, Alexandria, VA. Memorial contributions may be made to The ARC of Northern Virginia, Goodwill Industries of the Greater Washington area, or to the Heritage Presbyterian Church.
