Frank S. Myers ’36

Frank Stott Myers Sr. ’36, November 12, 2002, from complications from a multiple bypass operation, in Portland, Oregon. Frank attended Reed then turned his attention to his passion for aviation. He soloed an American Eaglet at the Hillsboro (Oregon) Airport at the age of 20. In 1940 he purchased a new Porterfield CP65 at the Saint Louis factory and flew it back to Oregon. He joined the Civil Air Patrol in World War II, flew submarine patrols over the Gulf of Mexico, and received the air medal. He then joined the navy and did service in the South Pacific. Frank began a career in insurance, and later turned to real estate, operating his own firm until the time of his death. In the early ’90s, he hosted a Portland cable television show, Age Wise, with helpful hints for senior citizens. He was a wonderful father to his two sons, and was well connected to hundreds of friends throughout the U.S. His life was full of adventure, and his final trip to Europe in 2000 included the 60th anniversary exhibition of the Battle of Britain Airshow.
