My heart is breaking with the news of Bill's passing. I only found out today or I would have came to the funeral, Shirley. I always considered Bill as a close friend, whom I could talk about many different subjects with, like his pigs, of course bowling and golfing, but mostly just about things going on in our lives. Bill and I surely bowled in hundreds of tournaments together, over the years. May God bless the entire Myers family, as we remember a true friend to many. Digger and Rodney will have another partner on their team in Heaven!

My condolences to the entire Myers family. I knew Bill through my college friend, his brother, Fred. I was able to participate in some bowling and golf events with Bill and Fred. Bill was always full of stories and a big hoot to be around. Always had a good time. Rest in Peace Bill.

Bill was an outgoing individual and an all around great guy who loved life and bowling. He volunteered for many York Adams USBC bowling events, and on the board, in York and Adams counties over the years. I always enjoyed talking with him. He will be truly be missed!

To a man who taught many of us what a good work ethic looked like. I had the honor of working with Bill for many years at Whitecombs. I will forever be grateful for his conversations, his weekly updates on his pigs, him educating me on how to pick out a good watermelon for customers, and for showing me that he can butcher a whole case of beef within an hour as long as he had his favorite knife. When Bill left, we would joke around at the store when someone else was cutting beef and say "If Bill was here, he would've had it done by now". It's the little things that that I will always remember about such an awesome guy.

May you Rest In Peace, Bill. Sending healing words of comfort to your family during this difficult time.
