CHURCHVILLE - Raywood Michael Myers, 63, of 883 Scenic Highway, passed away at Augusta Health on Friday, May 28, 2021.
Ray was born March 24, 1958, in Charleston, West Virginia, the son of the late Raymond and Charlotte Michael Myers.
On June 30, 1977, he married his loving wife, Wanda Howdyshell Myers, who survives. He is also survived by his sons, Travis Myers and wife, Christina, of Bridgewater and Shawn Myers and wife, Bethany, of Churchville. His five grandchildren, Emma, Ava, Carter, Pyper and Oakley, were the lights of his life and will always hold on to precious memories of their granddaddy.
Ray had a passion for hunting, fishing and trips to the beach and thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories with family and friends. He took pride in his sons’ sporting events, from when they were very young through their own coaching careers. This carried over to his grandchildren; he was always their biggest fan and will continue to watch over them in all that they do.
