Richard Benjamin Myers, of Philadelphia, passed away on Tuesday, November 17, 2020. He was 37 years old. "Rich" as he was affectionately known by to his family and friends, was born on October 7, 1983 to his father, the late Ronald Myers and his mother, Donna Sanford with whom he is survived by.
Richard attended Green Tree High School and graduated in 2002. Subsequently, he attended Orleans Technical Institute where he obtained certificates in Building Maintenance, and in Air Conditioning/Refrigeration in the summer and fall of 2003.
Richard has impacted many people in his leadership roles during his work career. He managed a U-Haul store, started as a driver at Enterprise Holdings, advancing to Lot Attendant, and more recently supervised a team of workers at Walmart. He was an avid electronics and technological enthusiast.
Richard was invested in his community, known by everyone on the block. As assistant block captain, he helped during monthly clean-ups by mowing everyone's lawn. He was also a member of our local and national Town Watch and worked as a poll worker during elections. Richard was a humble, generous individual who valued family; everyone's family. Over the years, he has driven family and neighbors to work or needed destinations, helped them with car difficulties and given them advice and knowledge regarding home repair issues. On the roadway, if someone's gas cap was not closed properly on their car, Richard tried to stop them and let them know. Richard was approachable, friendly, and astute. People could talk to him and share their problems; he listened.
