In Loving Memory Of
Donald Myers
1942 - 2023

Donald Myers, 81, of Residence Moncton “Mapleton Wing”, passed away on Thursday, November 23rd, 2023, at the Moncton Hospital.

Born in Moncton, NB, he was the son of the late Leo and the late Rita (Lirette) Myers.

Prior to his retirement, Donald was an electrician and after worked as a food inspector / plant manager with Bonté Foods. Mom and dad loved travelling and spent their winters in Florida until mom took sick. They loved taking Sunday drives, often ending up driving down some bumpy old dirt road. Dad loved hunting and fishing in his younger days. Dad had a love of antique cars and watching old western movies. Dad was an excellent guitar player and loved to play and sing the old country songs when an opportunity came along. You are finally reunited with mom.

He will be dearly missed by his daughters: Giselle Arsenault (Allan) of Moncton and Tracy Thomson (Mark) of Riverview; his very special and treasured grandchildren: Brianne Arsenault and Jace Thomson; his sisters: Diana Anderson (John) of Moncton and Stella Myers-Sedore of Toronto, ON; his brother, Thomas Myers (Rejeanne) of Moncton, as well as many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his wife, Joan (Sisson) Myers in 2019.

At the family’s request, no visitation and no funeral service will be held.

Interment in Notre-Dame-du-Calvaire Columbarium, Dieppe, NB.

” Dad knew his life was through

But wasn’t scared to die

Dad closed his pain filled eyes

His final breath a sigh

His wife took his hand

And whispered “Welcome Dear’

It’s been so very long –

we won’t be parted here.”

To you walking me down the isle telling me jokes all the way down! I will cherish and love you forever! I’m happy to know you are now in the arms of your precious wife and I can already here her…oh Don!!! Lol. Have fun you two lovebirds!

  3. Uncle Don and Aunt Joan were always very kind to my Arthurette family. I recall several Christmas celebrations when Uncle Don would play his guitar and sing festive songs. There were many stories shared around the old wood stove. My fondest memory is when as a 16 yr old driver I backed my old car into his much better boat of a vehicle. I sheepishly went into the house to deliver the news and he didn’t even go look at the fender bender. He said that he was going to trade in the vehicle soon anyway. That was the type of man, uncle that Uncle Don was. My condolences and prayers for his family. Please allow yourself time to grieve…
