Aloha ‘Oe: Jon Myers (BA ’73)

Jon Myers passed away on July 14, 2020. Myers received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Japanese history from the University of Hawai‘i in 1973. He loved living in Honolulu for 20 years, during which time he visited Japan and grew to love their culture. He worked in sales and graphic design while in Hawai‘i, and again after returning to the mainland to be near family in Wisconsin.

He retained his love for the Hawaiian Islands throughout his life, and 'Aloha' was his usual greeting. He enjoyed golf, sports, history, reading, drawing and a good conversation. Graveside services were held on August 31, 2020, at the Milton Jct Cemetery, Milton, Wisconsin. Two brothers, one sister, nieces, nephews, two aunts, and cousins survive.
