Paul L. Myers79, United Zion resident, state electrician
Paul L. Myers, 79, of United Zion Retirement Community, Lititz, formerly of Rapho Township, unexpectedly went home to be with his Lord Saturday morning, July 14, 2012 at Lancaster General Hospital following declining health.
Born in Lancaster, he was the son of the late Ezra B. and Lottie Long Myers.
Paul was a 1951 graduate of Manheim Central High School, attended Millersville University and also received vocational training in various trades. Ultimately, he was employed as a Pennsylvania state employee as an electrician at the former Crippled Children’s Hospital and then by the Pennsylvania State Department of Corrections, both in Elizabethtown. He was a member and past president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Local No. 13 in Harrisburg. Early in his life, he was employed by the former Hamilton Watch Company in Lancaster. He attended Chiques Church of the Brethren in Manheim and served with Brethren Volunteer Service in Puerto Rico as a young man. In addition to being involved in the Pennsylvania Grange Association, Paul enjoyed farming as a hobby.
He is survived by two sons: Paul Lamar Myers Jr., of Marietta; and Alfred L. Myers, of Lancaster; six grandchildren; three great- grandchildren; and a brother: Kenneth C. "Sonny" Myers, of Manheim.
He was preceded in death by a sister: Grace Williamson.
A graveside service was held on July 18 at Chiques Cemetery, Manheim, with brother Randy Hosler officiating. There will be no viewing. If desired, contributions may be made to Brethren Disaster Ministries, 601 Main St., P.O. Box 188, New Windsor, MD 21776-0188.
