PORTSMOUTH – Elwood Ray Myers, 91, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 11, 2020. A native of Portsmouth, he was born on June 29, 1928 to the late Hosea and Margaret Myers. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister, Katheryn M. Forrest and a brother, Hosea M.

It was through his service to his country that he gained a love for aviation and working as an aircraft electrician.

Elwood was a lifetime member of the Moose Lodge 39 with over fifty years of membership. He was a member of Westhaven Baptist Church. He was a member of Mended Hearts of Tidewater. Elwood enjoyed woodworking and traveling. He loved to share stories and talk about life’s many twists and turns over the backyard fence with neighbors or while tinkering with his vehicles. Elwood loved football and was an avid Washington Redskins fan. He also was a Richard Petty race fan. Elwood was a very caring and giving person who regularly supported his community through various senior group organizational activities.
