Dr.  Ray Herbert Meyers DDS Obituary
June 13, 1940 - April 5, 2016 Dr. Ray Herbert Meyers, DDS, born in Los Angeles to Herbert and Carmen Meyers, died of complications of congestive heart failure and recurrent prostate cancer. He fought the good fight for over a month in the hospital, rehab centers, and eventually at home when his prognosis was certain. The whole time he charmed his doctors, nurses and home care assistants in the way only Ray could, stealing smiles, kisses and hugs while putting everyone else at ease. He can now join his parents and Scotty and Adrian in heaven, where they are continuing to play his favorite games of liar's dice, casino, and gin rummy while watching any UCLA team sport, pro golf, NASCAR, soccer, the Giants, Warriors and the 49ers. I'm sure all the angels have lined up to join the party! Ray had the Midas touch in terms of his profession, as he made dentistry look easy and made all the teeth he touched turn to gold, both literally and figuratively. He made even the most fearsome patients comfortable, through his good looks, charm or that back room cabinet that made all his patients look forward to their appointment. Each and every patient knew he cared and felt happy that he or she was his best friend. Ray's sense of humor and zest for life will be especially missed by his surviving children: Jeff, Greg, Ray, and Erika Meyers, and Big's other son Jose Sandoval. His daughter-in-law Angela Meyers and grandchildren Madeline, Harrison, Veronica, Gia and Pressley will miss him dearly as well as his former spousal units and close friends, Iris Meyers, Alma Meyers, and Rosa Sandoval Meyers. His loving sister, Rose (Tootsie) Gavica Meyers and her husband Joe, will miss their brother "Sonny" very much. He wouldn't want us to be upset now but rather to toast his new adventure and smile. We can just hear him telling us his favorite saying during difficult moments- "Rax" meaning just relax, it will be okay. We're all trying, right? In lieu of flowers, please send any donations in Ray's memory to the incredible Marin Hospice by the Bay team.
