I loved HK and his wife while they was at Newtoen Harris!!! Mrs Myers was one of my favorite teachers! Accounting was always my favorite class that she taught.
I will always remember HK with his bight red checks and a laugh that could make you laugh on your worse days.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Many prayers
So sorry about your loss. It is a terrible time to lose a loved one, when hospitals are closed to visitors. That would be a very sad situation. Always enjoyed talking to your Dad, would always have to catch him up on what was happening in Newtown, he had so many friends there. I am sure that is true about every placed he lived, lots of friends. Prayers for your family.

I’m so very sorry to hear of Mr. Myers’s passing. I remember him fondly as a kind, caring and jovial superintendent of Newtown-Harris. What an endearing couple he and Mrs. Myers were. Whatever problem was troubling me, as a teacher or parent, I could always count on Mr. Myers to listen with kindness and genuine concern. My sincere sympathy and condolences to his family.
So sorry to hear of his death. While he was in Newtown we became friend & thought so well of him and Annette. HK was so kind and generous.

I am saddened to hear of H.K. Myers’s passing. We were just about on schedule for another phone conversation and this time we were going to talk about our families.
H. K. and I go back to 1960 when we were both working for the Lynn county R-1 school district as teachers. H. K. taught shop and I taught science. I was single in those days and was often and invited to go home with him. The only children I knew then were Stanley and Lisa. Obviously they were pretty young.
I went to Ottumwa, Iowa on weekends quite a lot and sometimes we take one of his cars for servicing. It would either be his 1960 Pontiac or Triumph TR-2 sports car.
There could be lots more said as we had many good times together.
I am so sorry for your loss. H.K was Superintendent in Laredo my Senior year. I think my classmates would agree that our class had a special relationship with him. Many great memories with him that year including Senior trip and graduation day. Seeing him at so many of our Alumni Banquets was always enjoyable. He will be missed!
