The world lost a beloved father, Poppop, and great Poppop. Harry Myers was called home on September 15, 2023, at the age of 82.
He was born in New Jersey and has resided in Long Beach since 1976. He devoted his life to his wife, children, and grandchildren. Harry was a veteran of the Korean and Vietnam War in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Korea when he met his beloved wife, Anthonia “Toni” Myers for whom he was devoted to. Harry worked and retired after 34 years as an Engineer for the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office located at John C. Stennis Space Center in south MS. He was an active member of St. Thomas Catholic church as a Eucharistic Minister, served as a fourth degree with the Knights of Columbus, and as an Honor Guard.
Harry was known as the “Mr. Fix It” of the family and he wore that title well in every aspect. He was the perfect example of a family man and always put them first. His favorite hobbies included traveling in his big family van (esp. to Disney World, riding roller coasters with his grandchildren), holding hands and dancing with his wife, playing golf, tinkering with his gadgets, woodworking, making home videos of his family, cooking his famous apple pancakes, reading Harry Potter, playing cards and board games, and watching grandchildren play their favorite sports. He will always be remembered for his laugh, loud cartoon-like sneezes, and great hugs.
Harry is preceded in passing by his wife, Anthonia Myers and both of his parents, Harry S. Myers Sr. and Alice Myers of New Jersey. He is survived by his children, Sandra Anthonia Myers Dahmash (Zoffee Dahmash) and Steven Harry Myers (Deborah Myers); and grandchildren, Maria Dahmash Bishop (Nicholas Bishop), Daniel Dahmash ( Olivia Husband), Zachary Dahmash, Gracelyn Myers, Noah Myers, Liam Myers, and Evan Myers; and his first great grandchild, Luka Alexander Bishop. He is also survived by his siblings; Joan Myers Keplinger, Ken Myers, Gerry Myers, Susan Myers Cromwell, and Steven Myers.
