Our deep condolences to Bob’s family. Bob was a dedicated surveyor and a dedicated employee of Myers Surveying Company for over 4 decades. He taught many younger surveyors the skills of his trade. Bob was always cheerful and fun to work with on his Surveying crew. I did learn early not to try to sneak a bite of food from his lunch plate. He was quick on the draw with his fork, and if you needed your fingers, keep your hands on your own plate. Rest In Peace, Robert, and thanks for the lifelong lessons. AJ and Mary Myers
