William “Tommy” Myers, age 65, of Erie, passed away September 23, 2021 at his residence. He was born in Erie, November 13, 1955, a son of the late Thelma Aiken (White/ Myers/ Smith) and Willie Myers (Meyers).

He was raised in Erie, and graduated from East High School, class of 1973. Tommy was later drafted into the United States Air Force, on September 5, 1974. Upon retiring from the Air Force, he worked for General Electric for twenty eight and a half years, serving as the union steward during that time. Tommy lived his life as a giving man, loving father, grandfather, uncle, and brother. He was a man of many sayings, “Rock and roll knuckle head.” A faithful and dedicated Miami Dolphins fan. He will be greatly missed and continuously loved. May his legacy of giving continue on through those that he touched in his lifetime.  He loved the water, especially the tall ships in Lake Erie.

In addition to his parents, He is preceded in death by his stepfather, Grady Lee Smith Sr., Stepmother, Sarah Jo Meyers, five brothers, Sgt. Michael Sean Smith, Roosevelt White Jr., Willie Albert Meyers, Grady Lee Smith Jr., Samuel Meyers, and one sister, Rev. Jeanette Myers.

He leaves to cherish his memory and love: His daughter Erickia Conway, and two grandsons, De-Jrion Rasheed Rucker and Errik Lamont Cooper Jr. both of Tacoma Washington. Tommy is survived by six sisters, Carolyn Jones (Robert Nathanel), Anne Harbison (Wayne), Rita A. Smith, Leslie Jones (Alvin), Carrie Jean Garlington (Anthony), and Janet Roberts, all of Erie. He is further survived by two brothers, Dale Smith (Cassandra) of Erie, Wilbur Meyers, of Butler, PA, and a sister in law Claritha Meyers, of Erie. A host of nieces, nephews, *god children, great nieces, and *great nephews, who he had a very special bond with, and we pray you keep those memories very near and dear to your hearts.
