Jerry Del Myers 83 of Eau Claire, WI died peacefully at his home on January 20, 2023. Jerry was born September 20, 1939, youngest son of Delbert and Margaret (Davis) Myers. He graduated from Memorial high school in 1958 and then traveled the US. In 1971 Jerry married Jeanne (Parker) Myers. He was proud to say that he has been to all of the states except Alaska stating many times that "he was the world's worst shopper but has been to Macys in New York City". Jerry loved telling stories about the many jobs he had throughout his life from picking apples in the state of Washington to working on the tow boats on the Mississippi. He loved playing cards, having coffee with the guys, sitting on his three-season porch watching the action (wildlife), and spending time with his family. Of all the travel and all the jobs Jerry said the best place to live was the house he and his wife Jeanne built in 1972 and working the mail route for the Eau Claire school system.
