William “Rock” Myers

William “Rock” Myers

From the days of his youth when no one was allowed to date his sisters to his later days when he fawned over his kids, everyone knew family was priority one for Rock. He was always easy to spot: pretty green eyes, sporting a bandanna with his signature pony tail. Rocky spent his earlier years riding his Harley and being Captain of his pool league. He was most at home in the outdoors: fishing, hunting, boating and crabbing. His most recent hobbies included restoring old bicycles and fishing reels. As a dad he was fun loving and supportive; from family vacations down the shore, Knobles and Poconos to being the loudest parent at any hockey and soccer game. At family cookouts you could find Rocky competing with his Dad and son in washer “tournaments” for hours. No one loved a good party like him; his pig roasts were legendary. Most days found him turning a wrench with the Boiler Maker Union.

Rock is survived by his parents, William and Evelyn Myers; his children, Jacquelyn (Eric), Cody and Kelcie; his grandson, Easton; sisters, Lynda (Rich) Hatcher, Karen (John) Berger and Michelle (Ben) Eastburn; nieces and nephews, Jenna, Bryce, Brodie, Nick, Reilly, and Beckham; his ex-wife, Valori and his companion, Barbara Fynan

Come celebrate 56 years on Sunday from 9-11 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Riverside, where there will be a service at 11. Interment Private. If you know Rocky, you’ll know what to wear (Eagles, Harley Davidson etc.) In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Youth Fishing Program (theikefoundation.org) or Delran EMS (delranems.org)
