He was born Dec. 12, 1931, in Clay County, the son of George Washington Myers and Yuma Hicks Myers.

He graduated from Brazil High School, class of 1950.

He enjoyed sports in high school and lettered in football.

Following high school, he went to work for American Vitrified.

In 1952, he joined the U.S. Army and served two years in Korea. Upon coming home, he worked again for the clay factory before landing a job at the coal mine.

He worked in many capacities at the mine, last working as a driller.

He retired from Amax in 1990, following health problems with his heart.
