John worked for K&M Sales and Motor Inn before starting his railroad career.

John worked as an engineer for the Rock Island and Union Pacific Railroads for 27 years. He was the fourth generation of working for the railroad totaling over 200 years.

John met Carrie Weirather and they later married in August of 2008.

John was nothing short of a hard worker, but he loved a good break to just be outdoors. He enjoyed pheasant hunting, fishing, model trains and cheering on the Green Bay Packers. He got a kick out of playing pranks and telling jokes John always had a humorous side to him and he never lost it. Although he enjoyed all these things, he undoubtedly loved his family.

John is preceded in death by his father, John Myers and his grandparents. John is survived by his wife Carrie of the home; daughters, Amy and husband Shawn Friesner of Estherville, IA, Suzy and husband Austin Keirsey of Bartlesville, OK; son, Billy Myers of Nowata, OK; stepsons, Tyler and wife Jackie Weirather and Trenton Weirather both of Nowata, OK; mother, Norma; five granddaughters, Makayla, Hadley, Jaden, Aisley, and Jayla sisters, Marcia and husband Bob Davis, Margaret and husband Craig White and one brother, Dave Myers, all of Iowa; numerous nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
