Obituary for Dale D. Myers

My name is Dale Durand Myers, and I was the second child of Robert Myers and Gerine Corbin. I was born on April 22, 1950 at Mary Greely Hospital in Ames. I peacefully took my last breath, in this same location, surrounded by my family and friends on May 7, 2019.
I was raised in Ames and graduated from Ames High School in 1969. After high school, I began my plumbing apprenticeship and became a master plumber, a career which I enjoy for many years. In 1972, I married Elda Myers (Prati) in Nevada, IA where we made our home with my step-son Terry (Diana) Prati of Altoona, welcoming our daughter Teresa (Willie) Lancaster of Clarion, the following year.
I was an avid outdoorsman. Hunting and fishing were my favorite things to do and I created many memories doing both, with family and friends. I enjoyed being of service and teaching and helping others. I was involved in many organizations, including Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and was so proud of being honored as Elk Member of the Year, for my many contributions of time and talent.
I was a caring son to my “Old Man” Robert Myers and devoted to my loving and gentle mother Gerine Corbin. I had an unbreakable bond with each one of my siblings, Rod (Janet) Myers of Ames, Bob Myers of Ames, Mike (Laura) Myers of Boone, Chris (Paulette) Myers of Boone, Rob (Katherine) Myers of Lacona, Jeff Myers of Ames and Victoria (Tron) Smith of Ames. I cared deeply for all my aunts, uncles and cousins and had a special place in my heart for all my nieces and nephews.
I was a friend to many. Whether spending time together in a boat or with a pole or the timber or on the course or on the stage, I appreciated each one of my friends and I’m so thankful for the many memories I made with each of them.
I was a father to my daughter, Teresa. I taught her many important things in life, like how to catch nightcrawlers and how to bait a hook. However, nothing was more important than the final lesson I taught her...the importance of asking for forgiveness, just as we must ask for forgiveness before our Heavenly Father. In addition, the most important lesson my daughter taught me, was how to forgive. Hearing these words from her, provided light to lift me up and allowed me to take flight to my eternal Heavenly home, where I will praise God forever!
A visitation with my friends and family, will take place on May 17, 2019, from 5-7:00 PM, at the Adams Funeral Home in Ames, IA, with funeral services taking place on May 18, 2019 at 2:00 PM at the Hope Lutheran Church in Kelly, Iowa.
