He loved his country and was proud to be a Navy Veteran. He studied at Allegheny College and then graduated from the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Dentistry in 1966. His first Dentist job brought him to Warren County.

He loved the area and enjoyed living in Warren, Youngsville and Spring Creek. He continued for the next 52 years practicing Dentistry. "It’s what I’m trained to do and I love it" he would say. His relationship with his patients was very important to him. Many he considered his friends. "We Cater to Cowards" his appointment cards used to say. He always had a friendly smile, story or joke to tell.

He was a clown for the Shriners. He enjoyed his role as "Docco" the clown. Visiting children at the Shriners hospital and riding that silly bike in the parades. He was a member of the Stillwater Lodge #547 F&AM Masonic Lodge and also a member of Saint Francis of Assisi Church. He and his wife, Lynne, joined the SCA (The Society for Creative Anachronism) He received The Order of the Laurel; the highest honor for study and skill in the Arts and Sciences. He loved creating art through wood working and belonged to many wood carving groups in PA, NY and WV. He belonged to Corry and Columbus Woodcarving and Southtown and Olgby Woodcarvers Assoc. He also belonged to the Warren Art League and The Corry Artist Guild. His legacy lives on in his magnificent works of art.

He had a thirst for knowledge and always wanted to learn more. He enhanced his life with his love of nature and the outdoors. Spending time with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Playing practical jokes on them and nurturing their sense of humor. With a sparkle in his eye and the grin on his face you knew he was up to something. There was always lots of love and laughter when the Myers crew got together!
