Arthur L. "Art" Myers, Jr., 68, of 355 Wood Ridge Lane, Rasselas, died Friday evening, July 23, 2021 surrounded by his family at UPMC Shadyside Hospital, Pittsburgh.
He was born a fifth generation farm boy on March 30, 1953 in Ridgway, a son of Arthur L. Myers, Sr. and Sheila Dorio Myers. On November 12 1977 in Holy Rosary Church, Johnsonburg he married his high school sweetheart Mary Ann Leader, and she survives. Together, they built a log home and started a family.

Even though we were the same age in our boyhood days, Art always seemed like a big brother to me, always looking out for me. We had many happy adventures together. I saw him a few years ago and it was like we were brothers again. This is a terrible loss. My condolences to his family, he will be greatly missed.

Art was a great guy and he & I worked together at E Br. Lake. Me as a WCO for the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission and Art as a Ranger for the Corp of Engineers. Together we helped in making E Br a real recreational site for future generations. Art will be missed by all, but remembered for all the good
changes at East Branch Lake.......

Art was a man I very much respected I worked with him at East Branch Dam in 1984. A super ranger and friend throughout the years. My deepest condolences and prayers for all.

He was the best at his job. He had the ability to get his point across without raising his voice or being combative. He was respected by all. I was proud to have known him, I enoyed our conversations over the years at the Dam. The East Branch Dam, the people that enjoy it, campers, boaters, people out for a ride or a walk would always know Art was there to greet them. A real asset to the area but even more a great husband, father and friend to all. Gone too soon, RIP.
