David William Myers

May 15, 1937 — April 14, 2021

David William Myers, age 83, of Dover, died Wednesday, April 14, 2021, while in the Inn at Northwood Village at Dover following a period of declining health.

Born on May 15, 1937, at Uhrichsville, Ohio Dave was a son of the late Dorwin V. and Stella M. Roth Myers.

He was a member of the class of 1955 from the former Tuscarawas-Warwick school and furthered his education by earning a Bachelor Degree in Earth Science from Muskingum in 1959. Just out of college, Dave proudly served his country as a member of the United States Army. On June 25, 1960, Dave married the former Juanita Estelle Murray and together the couple raised four children. In 1973, Dave obtained his Master’s as a Guidance Counselor from Xavier University.

Dave was a longtime educator and coach for the New Philadelphia City Schools. Not only did he serve as a Science Teacher and Counselor, he coached, football, wrestling and track and retired from Buckeye Career Center. He was an active member of the Broadway United Methodist Church at New Philadelphia where he sang in the choir and served as Sunday School Teacher and Lay Leader. After his retirement, Dave enjoyed working as a crossing guard, teaching at the Tuscarawas County Jail, delivering Meals on Wheels, long-distance cycling, collecting trains, and traveling. He was also a longtime Reserve Deputy with the Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team. Anyone who knew Dave knew of his kindness, generosity, and willingness to help anyone in need.

In addition to his wife, of 60 years, Dave is survived by four children, Diane (Dave “Buzz”) Bell, Eric (Laura) Myers all of Port Washington, Kurt (Darcey) of Qatar, and Mark (Mandy) of Uhrichsville; eight grandchildren, Dominic (Cori) Bell, Devin (fiancée, Lucas Ripley) Bell, Sarah Myers, Matthew Milligan, Adam Myers, Brennan Gambs, Braxtyn Myers, and Braylin Myers; a great-grandson, Jaxson Ripley and an expected great-grand child due in July.

Completing the family is a brother, Larry (Pat) Myers of Marysville, Ohio and a niece and a nephew.
