George Simon Myers of Campbellsville passed away on Monday, December 6, 2021, in Louisville. He was 87 years old.

The funeral service will be held at 1pmET on Saturday, December 11, 2021 at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home, 418 Lebanon Ave., Campbellsville, KY, officiated by Rev. Jim Murphy. Burial will follow in Brookside Cemetery.

Visitation is requested from 5pmET until 8pmET on Friday, December 10, 2021 at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.

George Simon Myers, son of the late George Henry Myers and Nettie Grace Wilson Myers, was born February 23, 1934, in Taylor County, Kentucky.

He professed faith in Christ as a young man and lived a good and honest life.

He served his country honorably in the United States Army while stationed in Germany.

Simon was a mechanic with Fruit of the Loom and retired after 34 years.

He had a talent of repairing and rebuilding just about anything and enjoyed his accomplishments. Wheeling and dealing at auctions, flea markets and yard sales was a favorite pastime; however, he mostly enjoyed the time spent with family, friends, and the "loafers" that hung out with him in his garage.

Simon united in marriage to Mildred Jean Noel on February 12, 1955. She preceded him in death on March 30, 1989.

He is survived by one son and one daughter: Gerald Myers and wife, Terry, of Campbellsville and Sherry Myers-Sonnenberg and husband, Charles, of Nashville, Tennessee. Three grandchildren: Zachary Myers of Frankfort, Elijah Myers of Covington, and Rachel Myers of Louisville; two sisters: Nettie Cox of Campbellsville and Frances Johnson of Elk Horn; two sisters-in-law: Margaret Doris Noel of Nashville, Tennessee, Gwendola Glover of Louisville; and his longtime sweetheart, Ola Davis of Campbellsville; several nieces and nephews and a host of other relatives and friends.

He was also preceded in death by two brothers and two sisters: James Myers, Arthur Myers, Bernice Cook, and Lena Myers.

Expressions of sympathy requested to be donations to Green River Ministries and may be made at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.
