He was born January 30, 1937, in Philipsburg, PA, a son to the late Charles Sheasley and Luella (Gephart) Myers Sr.

Charles is survived by his 6 children, Carol Rickerson of Youngsville, Cathy (Steve) Frederick of Pittsburgh, Chris Myers and her fiancé, John Mack, of Youngsville, Cassandra “Sandy” (George) Traut of Warren, Charmaine “Stacey” (Justin) Ingram of Pittsburgh and Charles “Chuck” (Kendra) Myers III of New Hampshire; a brother, Gary (Carol) Myers of State College; his grandchildren, Casey (Chelsea) Rickerson, Ryan (Emily) Rickerson, Corey and Kyle Traut, Noah, Chaz, Jacob and Brandon Myers; 6 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews and his loyal sidekick, his English Bulldog, Charlie.

Charles graduated from State College High School. He then enlisted in the US Navy and served the majority of his time state side in the Great Lakes Region as a Dental Tech. from Feb. 1958 to Dec. 1961. 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!

Family and friends are invited to call on Friday, February 22 from 2-5pm at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, 343 East Main Street, Youngsville, PA 16371.

I was blessed to have had Dr. Myers as my dentist for 46 years...even more blessed to call him friend. Dale and I will always treasure our carved pieces he so thoughtfully made for us...."Hagar the hiking Viking" walking stick and the pendant of entwined hearts. He graciously shared his many talents. He will be missed. His family has our deepest sympathy.

To the family of Chuck Myers
On Feb 17th, God called home one of his finest human beings. Rarely does one man possess so much talent, yet remain so humble. His lifelong quest for knowledge, which he turned into wisdom, was admired and respected by all who knew him. Even more importantly, he was kind. Chuck was such a large presence while living that he still occupies space even though he has left us.
Well done Doc. . . Time to rejoin J. Lynne.

Chris, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

We're so sorry to hear of your loss; your dad was a special man and was married to a special woman. People often comment about how some couples are just made for each other; and your mom & dad fit into that fortunate group. While we didn't get together as often as I might have wished, there was no one more kind, generous and quick-witted as your father, always doing everything he could to help you feel comfortable and welcome. Know that he's back with you mom now plotting some mischievous joke to play on some unsuspecting victim. Keep your memories of them close to your heart, and know you're in our prayers.
