  1. Hi Dad, I will so miss visiting you. Your apartment door with the big happy flower greeting everyone. That’s what I remember most about you……flowers🌺 You grew the most beautiful flowers and there was always a vase filled with their beauty sitting on the kitchen table🌸 I also loved how you shared them with the ladies at the church. Your voice in the choir always came through with a gentle tenor tone 🎶 You left us to soon even though you were 92‼️ But I know that your heart wanted to be with mom’s.❤️ Now you are together for always in peace and joy 💐 I love you, Lana

  2. What a gentle man…so loved by us all at First Presby! And, yes, he is with his beloved wife whom he cared for so lovingly for years. Bob will be missed!

  3. It was a pleasure to know Bob. He was one of the finest men we know from Boy Scouts. Over 30 years ago when we were new to CT and joined Boy Scouts here, Bob was one of the people who made us feel at home. May he rest in peace in the arms of our heavenly Father. Bob has gone home. ⊙

  4. Jim and Lana,

    Tim and I are so very deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Jim’s father. Although somewhat expected, the loss of one’s parent is truly an extremely sad and impactful one, especially when it’s such a gentle soul as your father was. Please know that you are in our hearts and prayers at this extremely difficult time. We love you both…

  5. I grew up in First Presby from the time my family arrived in Trumbull in 1972 when I was three years old until we left after my father’s death in 2003. Mr. Myers was a good-hearted, kind, and unselfish man with whom I had many conversations over the years, often about Scouting. He and my father were good, long-time friends, and he encouraged my dad to volunteer with Troop 10 at the church after giving many years of service at Troop 65 in Trumbull. Mr. Myers was a perfect example of why his and my father’s generation has been called The Greatest Generation for the unselfish and principled lives they led. Please accept my condolences and be reassured by the knowledge that your father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather had a wonderful impact on so many people, me included.
