Joseph “Bud” Myers Jr. 86 of Lower Burrell, passed away Friday, Nov.27, 2020 at Allegheny Valley
Hospital with his family by his side. He was born June 16, 1934. After his retirement from Braeburn Steel,
he remained active in the workforce pursuing what he called “fun jobs” working at Shady Side Academy,
Lernerville Speedway, Movie Filming Security, First National Bank “Mayor” and as a School Bus Aid for
disabled children. He served in the Army from 1952-1956 and upon discharge continued his service with
the U.S. Army Reserves retiring after 26 years of additional service. Bud was a 1953 graduate of Har-Brack High School.
Bud was a kind and loving Husband, Father and Grandfather. He always put other people ahead of
himself and lived a life of service to others. He was very active in the Lower Burrell Community, St
Margaret Mary Church and local politics. He was a member of St Margaret Mary church for 59 years
serving as a volunteer at all fund raisers and programs to support the disadvantaged. He was an active
member of the Lower Burrell Lions serving 25 years. He enjoyed playing Santa for various Charities
especially Cookies with Santa. He rarely missed attending Lower Burrell Council meetings or an
opportunity to “discuss” politics.
Bud had a great heart for serving people. He was known by many in the community as the L.B. Farmers
Market Man, having founded the L.B. Farmers Market 10 years ago to in his words “to fulfill the need for
the Seniors of L.B. to be able to use their food vouchers to obtain fresh produce”.
Most of all he loved being with his grandchildren and never missed attending their various athletic
events (near or far) throughout their high school and college careers.
Bud is survived by his wife of 65 years Carol, who he always said “was the best thing that ever happened
to me”, sister Kay Ruffner of Punta Garda, FL, daughters Cheryl (Francis) Szypulski and Lisa McKillop of
