Gary Myers

April 20, 1963 — March 14, 2020

Gary Scott Myers, "Scott" 56, of Middle Point passed away at 6:39 PM on March 14, 2020 at Van Wert Health Emergency Room.

Born on April 20, 1963, in Lima, to Gary F. and Judith Ann (Graham) Myers. On November 19, 1999, he married the love of his life, Jennie L. Dockery. Together, they shared 20 years of marriage.

Scott was a 1982 graduate of Vantage Career Center and attended Lincolnview High School. He went on to serve in the United States Air Force where he was stationed at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines.

Scott worked as a driver for Tecumseh before working for 3 Son's Towing, Hauling and Salvage. He was an avid drag car racer for Myers Racing. As an experienced mechanic, Scott would often rebuild engines and build cars for others. He also enjoyed building model cars. Known for his wicked sense of humor, he could always make you laugh, and never sugar coated what he had to say.

Scott was also a current member of Middle Point Village Council. He was a loving husband, devoted grandfather and loved his family immensely.

He is survived by his wife, Jennie L. Myers of Middle Point; children: Tyler Myers of Van Wert; Tara Jo Myers and Amber Myers, both of Lima; step-children: James (Kristie) Delno of Sioux Falls, SD; Barbie (Natasha Bloom) Delno of Flint, MI; parents: Gary F. and Judith Ann Myers of Middle Point; brother, Clint (Sherry) Myers of Van Wert; sisters: Greta Nettleton of Emmitsburg, MD; Amy Myers of Van Wert; Debbie (Kevin) Potts of Sunbury; grandchildren: Anthony, Rylea, Landon, Gavin, Brennon, Aubrin, Jenna and Jackie; lifelong friends: Brian Brown; Pat Brincefield and Kelly & John Rist, all of Middle Point; as well as his one-eyed cat, Melvie.

Scott was preceded in death by grandparents: Mary and Harold Myers, Helen Vasquez, Roger and Mitzie Graham, as well as brother-in-law, Timothy Nettleton.

A celebration of Scott's life will be at 4 PM on Sunday, June 7, 2020 at the Middle Point Community Building where the family will receive friends from 2 to 4 PM.
