Wilford L. “Will” Myers passed away surrounded by those he deeply loved on June 13..

The funeral service will be at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 18, at First Baptist Church in Deweyville. Interment will follow at Miller Cemetery in Starks.

Visitation will be from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., Friday at Claybar Funeral Home in Orange. A memorial celebration of his life will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home.

Will was born Dec. 29, 1938 in Singer, La., and lived in the Mid-County area most of his life. He spent the last year battling cancer with courage, strength, humor and hope and even during his illness, found time to give to others and put his own struggles aside. He was a loving father, brother, uncle and friend and his presence in our lives is something we will always be thankful for.

Mr. Myers was the owner of Myers Electric that he built from the ground up 28 years ago. He was an active member of the community and was always there to lend a hand to anyone less fortunate than himself. He always put others first in his life and had a giving and loving spirit. He loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing and was a great cook.

Will was preceded in death by his son, Kevin Myers and is survived by his daughter, Stacey Myers of San Diego, CA; sisters, Dorothy “Dot” Blanchard of Nederland and Marie Doyle of Deridder; brothers, H.C. Myers of Deridder, and Claybert Myers of Houston and a host of loving nieces, nephews and many friends.

For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made to American Lung Association National Headquarters, 1301 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Suite 800, Washington, DC 20004.
