John D. Myers, 70, of Englewood, Fla., passed away Monday, March 16, 2015, from Parkinson’s disease.

He was born June 17, 1945, in Lebanon, Ky.

At age 15, John entered St. Thomas Seminary to study for the Catholic priesthood. In 1965, John then entered college and, in 1968, John graduated from St. Mary’s College at the top of his class. From 1968 until 1972, he taught school, and, in 1974, he entered Medical school at the University of Louisville and received his MD degree in 1978. Shortly after, John moved to Florida, where he did a two-year residency, specializing in emergency medicine. John was Board Certified in emergency medicine, and later became Director of the Emergency department at Englewood Community, Fawcett Memorial and the former Bon Secours-St. Joseph hospitals. He later went into private practice with another colleague, and helped to start a family practice called American Medic.
