Robert (Bob) Isaac Myers of Fishers, Indiana died at home on December 18, 2023 after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born to Iona Bowman Myers and Glen F. Myers on February 8, 1942.
He received his undergraduate degree from Manchester College and his MS and PhD from Purdue University.
He is survived by the love of his life for 46 years, Joyce Ramsey Myers, son Justin Robert Myers (wife Emma), grandsons Jackson and Nicholas Myers of Carmel, sister Beverly Carney of Lebanon, brother Richard Myers of Logansport, and many much loved cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Preceding him in death were his parents, brothers Nicholas, James, John and sister Jean Ferriera.
Bob was a career educator beginning as a 6th grade teacher at Daniel Webster Elementary school in Logansport, IN. From there he moved on to serve in the capacity as an elementary school principal, assistant middle school principal, curriculum director, business manager and superintendent. This career took him to many school districts including those in Bunker Hill, Sharpsville, Wabash, Huntington, Lafayette and Cheyenne, WY.
Bob loved his family and three dogs above all else, but had an incredible passion for education, the Constitution, and the people he worked with. He knew no stranger, was known coast to coast for his humor, made every effort to show off his Pride and Joy, and was always the truest definition of humility with everyone he met. He enjoyed many road trips to Colorado and Wyoming, and spent long hours in the loving restoration of his family’s homestead in Cass County, Indiana.
The family will host a celebration of life next summer. Memorial donations may be made to the Hamilton County Humane Society SURVIVOR PROGRAM at 10501 Hague Rd., Fishers, 46038.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Gundrum Funeral Home.
