John Irving Meyers brought his family through the great depression working as a Chauffer for the Throckmortons who were an extremely wealthy family in the New York area. After they died he went to work for Esso and spent 20 years there until his retirement.

He was a large man, easily 6'5" and 250 pounds. He liked to dress in suits and even at 80 years old was an imposing figure. He was active and mentally alert right up to the day he died in his 84th year.

John and Nettie had two children: Helen Carol and John I Jr. Helen had a twin brother who died at birth. John has six grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. (And counting.) His grandchildren called him Pop-pop.
