John (Jack) Wellington Myers Jr.

, 90, of Chandler, AZ passed away Thursday, March 3, 2022 in Chandler, Arizona USA. John was born October 19, 1931 in Detroit, MI to John Wellington Sr. and Winifred (Miller) Myers. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in March 1949 and was called to active duty during the Korean War conflict in July 1950 where he participated in the battle of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. The Chinese military invaded North Korea to face Allied forces who were outnumbered 20,000 to 120,000. Jack was wounded during the intense Artic cold battle and spent the next year in a Naval Hospital in Oakland, CA USA recovering from his injuries. He was honorably discharged in late June 1951. He held a variety of sales positions during his professional career in the Detroit, MI USA area where he and his wife Marjorie raised their two kids John III and Matthew. After retirement, he and Marjorie moved to Arizona to be closer to family.

Both Jack and Marjorie’s families had cottages at Rondeau Park when they were growing up in the 1950s. They met, fell in love and were married almost sixty years ago and ultimately bought a cottage themselves just outside Rondeau Park on the Lake where they spent time every summer with their two boys. Jack was a faithful husband and father who loved spending time with his seven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. He will be remembered as a man who loved life, cherished his friendships with people, delighted in being on the beach at Rondeau and being with his beloved wife Marjorie. Survivors include his two sons John Myers III (Tammy) and Matthew Myers (Lauri); and seven grandchildren: Tanya, Logan, Tabitha, Monica, Blake, Brooke and Chandler. Services and interment were held in Chandler, AZ.

After retirement Jack and Marjorie continued to come back to Rondeau Park every summer for a few months to spend time with friends and extended family. After Marjorie’s death in 2015, Jack still came back to Rondeau Park because he loved the location, his family nearby and the relationships with friends made over the years.
