Clifford Harold Myers, 92, of Cedar Lawn Drive, passed away Peacefully on Sunday, June 27, at his home. A few weeks prior, he had shared with his family that he had lived a good life, he loved everybody, and he was ready to graduate and go on to his Heavenly Home and be with The Lord!
Born Sunday, February 3,1929, in Fairplay, MD, he was the son of the late Bettie Foltz Myers and Percy Moore Myers. He was preceded in death by his seven siblings: Mabel E. Myers Miller, Henry A. Myers, Ralph J. Myers, Milton E. Myers, Percy L. Myers, Richard K. Myers and Donald V. Myers. Also preceding him in death were his son-in-law, Gary L. Knode, Sr., his grandson, Justin T. Matthews, and his great-grandsons Parker and Logan Lafferty.
He is survived by his wife of 72 1/2 years, Mary V. Myers, and their four children: Linda Knode (late spouse Gary L. Knode Sr.), Harold "Gene" Myers (spouse Jean), Carolyn Matthews (spouse Tom), and Judy Lafferty (spouse Randy).
He also enjoyed his many surviving grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
An animal lover, Clifford considered the family's many pets as additional family members over the years. His last "Fur Buddy" was his beloved cat Pretty Boy. Always keeping a cheerful heart and a great sense of humor, Clifford was known for the twinkle in his kind blue eyes and his sweet smile.
As a young man, he gained a strong work ethic through farm work, and later worked for Western Maryland Railroad as a certified blacksmith. Years later, Clifford worked for Marquette Cement and its successor companies for nearly five decades. A steady hard-working man, he developed a reputation of responsibility, strength, and diligence.
After retirement, Clifford kept a consistent morning routine that included driving his little blue pickup to get breakfast at Roy Rogers, where he was affectionately known as PAP, or McDonald's, where he joined his Bingo Buddies weekly for more than 20 years. He also included a brisk walk in his morning routine, and he faithfully fed his birdies and squirrels daily in his backyard. He often concluded his day with his favorite treat, vanilla ice cream.
He and his wife Mary enjoyed many traveling opportunities during their blessed life together.
Raised in the Brethren Church, he later became a lifetime member of Covenant Life Church.
A very positive example for anyone who knew him, Clifford remained quiet if he didn't have something good to say. He never said a bad word about others, and he didn't complain. He lived by his favorite saying: "Stay on the Sunny Side of life!" He truly will be missed by many. He was "one of those people that everybody liked."
Clifford, a good, faithful, humble, grateful man of God, truly loved to sing the old hymns and let his Light shine brightly.
Life Celebration Services will be held Saturday, July 10, 2021, at 12:30 p.m., at the Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home, 1331 Eastern Blvd. North, Hagerstown, MD, with Pastor Tim Fisher officiating. Clifford was known as someone who was "true blue." The family encourages everyone to wear blue, his favorite color, if they would like, as he was often heard saying, "Blue Is True."
The family will receive friends at the funeral home, Saturday, July 10, 2021, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Interment will be at the Cedar Lawn Memorial Park, 17636 W. Washington St., Hagerstown, MD.
Memorial donations may be made to the Humane Society of Washington County, 13011 Maugansville Rd., Hagerstown, MD 21740.
My prayers go out to you and your family. God Bless you.

Although Uncle Clifford was on the east side of the United States and our family in the west. I had great admiration for him. His kind, gentle spirit and love for other's. My dad, his brother Richard, would talk about their childhood experiences. Standing on the corner selling papers or working on the farm. But the greatest memory was the day they both accepted the Lord. And their devotion to the Lord never wavered. Enjoying the celebrating of each other's 80th birthdays. My dad always remembered to call him each birthday. Uncle Clifford you will be missed at the earthly family reunion but know you are enjoying your heavenly reunion. Our love, comfort and prayers for Aunt Mary and dear cousins as you grieve this great loss of husband and dad.

Uncle Clifford was one of kindest people I have ever had the pleasure to know. Growing up I always looked forward to our visits. He loved his family and was always ready for the family to get together. I miss him and love him with all my heart. Prayers to Aunt Mary and the rest of the family. My Father Percy died June 27th 2005. I am sure all the brothers and his sister are having a wonderful heavenly reunion.
