Myers, James

James D. Myers, age 84, of Paducah, KY passed away on Friday, August 31, 2018 at Baptist Health Paducah.

J.D. was born on April 25, 1934 to the late O.T. Myers and Thelma Williams. After joining the United States Air Force and serving in the Korean War, he earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Southern Illinois University and was a retired accountant. His current profession and hobby was being a charter bus driver. J.D. was an avid reader and constant learner of new information. He loved camping and driving but most of all his family, especially his grandkids. He will be remembered fondly by those he loved most as being an encourager who was always laughing.
