The family of Gilbert and Barbara Myers sadly share that Gill died peacefully on January 21, 2020, in his home in Williston. A memorial service will be held at the Essex United Methodist Church in Essex on Saturday, January 25, at 1 p.m.

Gill was born in 1933 in a small, western-New York town: Randolph. He was the oldest child of Frederick and Nina Myers. He graduated from Randolph Central School in 1951 and graduated from Alfred University in Alfred, N.Y. in 1955. He married his high school sweetheart, Barbara (Shenefiel) in Napoli, N.Y. in October, and they were sent to Fort Knox, Kentucky for U.S. Army basic training. Private Myers was sent to Butzbach, Germany where his wife soon met him after crossing the Atlantic. They returned to Randolph in the spring of 1957. They moved to Boston as Gill attended Boston School of Law (graduated in 1960) while Barbara served as a registered nurse.

Their eldest, Christopher, was born in 1958. The young family moved to Poultney, Vermont, where Gill worked with J. Malcolm Williams. Daughter Amy was born in 1961. They moved to Burlington where Gill was appointed as the assistant city attorney for Burlington. He soon set up shop in Essex Junction on Railroad Avenue, serving as an attorney for over 40 years. He was a lifelong member of the Lion’s Club and worked with Habitat for Humanity. He liked being able to help people with whatever they needed. He was active in the Vermont Bar Association. He enjoyed painting, woodworking, telling stories, reading, fishing, birdwatching, singing, and being outdoors. He loved and was very proud of his grandchildren: Elijah LaChance (Megan), AnnaGrace LaChance, and Zinnia LaChance.

He is survived by his wife Barbara, their son Christopher (Diana), their daughter Amy (Marc-André), his brother Clark (Francis), adoring grandchildren, and many, many friends. Our “Papa” will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to Habitat for Humanity, Vermont Association for the Blind and VisuallyImpaired, or the Essex United Methodist Church.

My sympathies to Barbara. Gil will be missed. Gil contributed to the world around him in many ways. He offered his legal skills to the elderly, he was active in both the Lions Club and Habitat for Humanity, and he created remarkably beautiful paintings. But mostly, Gil's had a wonderfully outgoing personality that affected so many.

To The Family of Gil Myers,

It was with sadness that I heard about your loss. Having known Gil in recent years, I was struck by his intellect and humor and I know although he will be missed, his legacy continues through his children and grandchildren. In that way he lives on!

Dear Mrs Myers: We would like to express our sympathies to you and your children and grandchildren. We always enjoyed meeting you folks at Church. I (Linda) remember that for some reason I had stopped at your Weed Rd. home and was impressed with all the work you folks had done to restore the farmhouse.
Our prayers are with you during this very difficult time in your life.
With deep regards, Raymond and Linda Holmes, Guilford, VT

To Barbara, Wonderful memories of Gill and you include, not only the legal work he did for us, but a lovely dinner at your Williston home, a tour of his amazing boat restorations, and, of course, his many paintings. Gill was kind enough to paint a picture for us (and frame it to boot!) of a snapshot I sent him of our backyard--clothesline in fall with falling leaves. It hangs in a place of pride in our living room, next to the window with the same perspective. It is a constant reminder of Gill's skill and generosity. We shall miss him. Elizabeth and Richard Bernstein

My deepest sympathy to the family of Atty Myers. His achievements were many, and his great devotion to helping people, not only his clients displayed his character. Thank you for your service to the senior community.
