Clifton Myers, 85, of Sandusky, died Saturday morning, April 26, 2014, in the Ohio Veterans Home.
He was born June 26, 1928, in Chicago, and grew up in Laurel, Miss.
Cliff served his country as a member of the U.S. Army.
His work sent him to various parts of the country demolishing power plants. After retiring from Envrex Construction of New York he moved to Sandusky, where he married Joan Vance on June 28, 1997.
Cliff was a 50 year member of Local 480, loved to travel, and living in Sandusky afforded him the opportunity to fish, which he would do on a daily basis. As soon as the weather would break, he would put his boat in the water and go fishing with his buddies, Duke, Jim, Frank, and Preacher.
He leaves to cherish his memory his wife, Joan Taylor-Myers; daughters, Ella Mae Parks of Lawrence, Kan., Mae (Albert) Jones, of Vacaville, Calif.; son, Leotha (Mary) Hudson, of Wichita, Kan.; step daughters, Peggy (Keevyn) Shelton, Toni Baker and Renee Baker; brothers, Jerry Evans, Bobbie Evans, and Harrison Evans; a host of grandchildren; great-grandchildren; a great-great-grandchild; and nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Cora Myers; step father; sisters, Caroline and Catherine; and brothers, Simon and James.
