Carol Keith “KC” Myers went home to Jesus on July 13, 2016. “KC” was born in Braman, Oklahoma on February 26, 1924 to Jim Christopher and Letha Farrah Myers. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Rosamond Faye Myers. KC leaves five daughters behind; daughter Charlotte Kay (Arvind) Jadhav of Irving, Texas and granddaughter Maya (Martin) Brown and great-grandchildren Simon and Rhys, and grandson Mitchell Jadhav; daughter Rose Ann (Emery) Fontenot of Richland, Washington and grandson James (Christine) Mowery and great-grandchild Alannah, grandson Todd (Mindy) Mowery and great-grandchildren Jared, Christopher, Isaiah and Ethan, grandson Jason (Lindsay) Cours and great-grandchildren Journey, Trinity, and Liam; daughter Monica Marie (Douglas) Roth of Kurten, Texas and grandson Christopher (Kathryn) White and great-granddaughter Rosamond “Rosie,” and grandson Adam White; daughter Melinda Mae Myers of Austin, Texas and grandson J. Alexander (Yui) Myers; and daughter Michelle Maxine Myers of Austin, Texas.
KC worked in Kansas and Nebraska as a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1941. He joined the Army Air Force in 1943 and was an airplane mechanic on the B-52s during World War II; he received his honorable discharge in 1946.
KC spent many years as a finish carpenter and owned and operated a “Grade A” dairy farm in Grandview, Washington before retiring and coming to live in Bryan, Texas. In the early eighties, KC and Faye opened and operated “KC Copy Boy” in Bryan as well as “Woodstone Wash Haus” in College Station.
KC loved being around people and would always try to get an arm wrestling match going or a foot race in the parking lot of the Wash Haus with some of the Aggie students as they waited for their laundry. He would stand on his head for a dollar or bet one of the students, so that he could “give them some spending money,” he would say later.
KC was an avid fisherman and would spend weekends on the river with his fishing buddies, one of whom, Johnny Clarity, he came to love as a son and he and mom “adopted” him as such. He loved to roller skate in his earlier years and would make up tricks to do on his skates. He would ride his bicycle backwards, sitting on the handle bars, always wanting and willing to try things differently.
He always had a smile on his face and a friendly hello ready for all he would see. He loved to take walks and when he could no longer walk very far, he started collecting cans and turned them in for cash.
KC used to drive his daughter Michelle to and from dialysis three times a week and always had candy or toys to hand out to the children and families at the dialysis clinic.
He recently moved to Broadmoor Place and literally “came alive” again. He loved the employees and residents as well. They became like family and more to him.
KC loved the Lord and family and friends and all that life had to offer. He will be greatly missed but leaves behind so many happy memories full of love and honor. He would joke, “Don’t send flowers, you can’t eat flowers!” I know, as his daughter, that he would want his money back from the rod put in during his hip surgery just prior to his passing, since he never got to use it! Oh, Dad, we love you and can’t wait to get to heaven to see you again!
A “Celebration of Life” service will be held for both KC and Faye Myers at a later date.
