Walter J. Myers 1951-2016

Portrait - Walter Joseph Myers

On Monday evening our family experienced a great loss as my grandfather passed away. My grandpa Walter became my grandpa through marriage and though I didn’t share his blood he treated me like I did. A warm and kind man, he was always smiling. He made time for family and I am proud to have become part of his.


Myers, Walter, of Florissant, MO, died Monday, March 21, 2016, at the age of 64. Beloved husband of Penny L. Myers; cherished son of the late Walter Myers and Margie Myers and the late Dora and the late James Robinson; devoted father of Valerie Olsen, and Beth (Nick) Beland; dear stepfather of Jamie Maxwell, Jim (Karen) Maxwell, Scott (Maria) Maxwell, Eric (Tammy) Maxwell, and the late Justin Maxwell; loving grandfather of 17; treasured great-grandfather of 4; cherished brother of Susan (the late Will) Randant and Diane (Kevin) Cox ; loving brother-in-law of Karla DeSpain and Dan (Pamela) Williams; cherished nephew of Earl Myers. He is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Walter loved traveling and Cardinals Baseball. He most of all loved his family. He was dearly loved, and will be missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made to PurpleStride Walk for Pancreatic Cancer in honor of Walter. Donations may be made here.

New Family Lineage Lists Posted:

What Are These Lists?

The family lineage lists are the default page for every family section and are my starting point for posting detail pages for individual family members.

While the lists themselves aren’t very informative, they’re a sign of more to come. If you don’t see names of individual members when you hover of the name of a family in the main menu, that means I haven’t started creating individual pages for that family yet.

Leave me a comment and let me know if there’s a particular person you would like to see bumped up!

New Individual Pages:

Geographical Information Updates:

  • The Evenes page is now available, with information on the Evenes Municipality in Ofoten, Norway.  More information will be added in the future.
  • The media sections of both the Campania & Palermo pages have been updated.

Have a great weekend!
