Robert Myers
    Robert Irving Myers, died peacefully at home, surrounded by his loved ones, on Sunday, Jan. 19, 1997, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Funeral services will be conducted at 12:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 23, 1996, at the: Alsip Funeral Chapel, Nampa.  Burial will follow in the Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.
    He was a kind, strong and gentle man, loved by so many.  His wife, Estalene was the love of his life, and they shared 50 years of a close and joyful marriage.  Her death eight years ago left a huge void in his life.  They lived in Oregon for four years and in the Nampa, Caldwell area for 49 years.  His final home was a country acreage in Caldwell where every year Robert and his sons and friends would dig a goose pit and hunt Canadian Geese.  They would all meet at his home for coffee before and after the hunt.
    Robert grew up in the Grant, Nebraska, area.  After leaving Nebraska and moving to Idaho, Robert became a carpenter, learning many of his skills from his Dad and he began to build homes.  His sons, Butch and Ron also followed in their Dad's footsteps and became building contractors, learning their skills from their dad.  Robert thought it was a great privilege to be able to construct a home for a family and to get it just right for them.  His quality and upstanding honesty won him a fine reputation which his sons have upheld.  Robert was raised in the Methodist Church in Nebraska.  His actions reflected his strong faith.  His life was a blessing to his family and friends and was greatly respected and loved.  He will be deeply missed.  He was the perfect Grandpa, who always listened.
    "We love you so Dad.  May you know a part of you lives on through us.  You are the best."
    He is survived by: a son and daughter-in-law, Ron and Marlene Myers of Nampa; a daughter and son-in-law, Donna and Frank Harris of Kirkland, WA; a daughter and son-in-law, Bobbie and Judge Charles Hay of Boise; a son and daughter-in-law, Butch and Terry Myers of Caldwell; a sister, Ruth Davis of Nampa; 11 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and his com-panion and best friend, "Snoopy."
    He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Mabel Myers; his wife, Estalene; and his sister, Kay Martineau.
    The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Mercy Hospice Program, 1512 12th Ave. S., Nampa, ID 83686, or flowers may be sent.
    Friends may call at the Alsip Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, today, until 8 p.m., on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and on Thursday from 8 to 11 a.m.
