He was a longtime employee of A&P, where he worked as a warehouse worker until his illness. John was the longest living survivor of a liver transplant (23 years) at Mount Sinai Hospital In New York. We liked to call John “Superman” because he dodged every bullet that was thrown at him, until it was finally time to rest. JC said “now his super powers are back stronger than ever and he will be watching over his family and friends.” John was a very kind man, and an amazing husband, father, family member and friend. He had a passion for music, fishing, food, the Yankees, the Raiders and most of all, his family. He will be greatly missed by all. John was predeceased by his father, John Meyers; and his brothers, Frank, Bobby Meyers; and his father- in -law, Frank Castro. He is survived by his mother Rosemarie Palumbo Meyers; wife, Susana Meyers of 35 years; his beloved son, John Charles Meyers (we liked to call ourselves “The Three Musketeers”); his beloved doggie Lily Meyers; brother, Joey Meyers; and his sisters, RoseAnn Goddard, Cathy Reyes, Michelle.
