J. Roger Myers (In Memoriam)
March 25, 1941 - January 18, 2022

Roger Myers grew up in Nebraska, where he was an honor student and won the high school state championship in the 100 yard dash. He then attended the University of Nebraska, where he played both offense and defense on the Cornhuskers’ football team. Upon graduation, he served a tour of duty in Vietnam, rising to the rank of Captain. After his military service, Roger attended Hastings College of Law. After passing the bar, he served as a Deputy District Attorney in Ventura. In 1971, he co-founded the law firm that still bears his name.

Roger was dedicated to community service. He was a founding member of Ventura County Stand Down, which provides homeless veterans and their families with needed services. He was also a member and president of two Rotary Clubs, elected member of the Ojai Unified School Board, and president of the Ventura County Bar Association. In 2007, Roger received the Ben Nordman award for community service - the Ventura County Bar Association’s highest award. When presenting the award, past recipient Ron Harrington described Roger as “a lawyer’s lawyer, a loyal friend, a superior intellect, a man of impeccable integrity and good humor, and a perfect gentleman.”

Roger Myers will be sorely missed by his friends, colleagues, clients, children, grandchildren and the community at large.
