CH­ESTER­TOWN — ChadleyJay Leis­ter My­ers, beloved hus­band, fa­ther, son, brother and friend, passed away at the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter at Eas­ton on Aug. 22, 2016, af­ter a pro­longed bat­tle with colon cancer. He was 45 years old.

Chad, as he was called by fam­ily and friends, was born on Oct. 18, 1970 in Hanover, Pa. His fam­ily moved to North­east Baltimore where he at­tended Villa Cresta Ele­men­tary School, Loch Raven Academy and grad­u­ated from Parkville Se­nior High School in 1988. Dur­ing his high school years, Chad played clar­inet in the con­cert band and threw shot put for the Knights’ track and field team. From his early years, he dis­played a strong tal­ent for lead­er­ship and fi­nan­cial man­age­ment de­liv­er­ing news­pa­pers for The Baltimore Sun. He would go on to Get­tys­burg Col­lege grad­u­at­ing with a bach­e­lor’s de­gree in busi­ness man­age­ment and ac­count­ing in 1992. While at Get­tys­burg, Chad was a mem­ber of the ATO Fra­ter­nity and met his beautiful wife, Gwen Fri­day My­ers, singing on the Chapel Choir. He and Gwen were mar­ried in 1994 and set up their first home in Har­ford County, where they were both ac­tive in the Trin­ity Lutheran Church of Joppa. Af­ter col­lege, Chad ac­cepted a po­si­tion in health care fi­nance as a man­ager in fi­nan­cial re­port­ing and com­pli­ance and a se­nior fi­nan­cial an­a­lyst in Baltimore.

In 2006, Chad and Gwen wel­comed a son, Tamer­lan Jay (T.J.), and a daugh­ter, Yana, through the mir­a­cle of adop­tion. The fam­ily moved to Ch­ester­town in 2009, where Chad con­tin­ued his work in health care fi­nance in ac­count­ing and de­ci­sion sup­port for the Uni­ver­sity of Mary­land Shore Med­i­cal Cen­ter where he was em­ployed at both the Ch­ester­town and Eas­ton lo­ca­tions.

Chad, with his wife and chil­dren, was an ac­tive mem­ber of the Pres­by­te­rian Church of Ch­ester­town. He used his tal­ents for fi­nan­cial man­age­ment in serv­ing the con­gre­ga­tion as a mem­ber of the fi­nance com­mit­tee. Chad will be re­mem­bered for his ded­i­ca­tion to his fam­ily, loy­alty to his friends, and his strong work ethic. He was a man of in­tegrity who en­deav­ored to show the love of Christ through his calm, gen­tle man­ner and hos­pi­tal­ity to all who met him.

Chad is sur­vived by his wife of 22 years, Gwen; chil­dren T.J. and Yana; his par­ents, Eugene and Ruth Leis­ter My­ers of West­min­ster; in-laws Larry and An­nette Fri­day of Elk­ton; sis­ters Robin My­ers Adamopou­los and Rachel My­ers Potts and broth­ersin-law Alex Adamopou­los and Eric Potts; sis­ter-in­law Kris­ten Ni­chol­son; and nieces Elise Adamopou­los, Kara Adamopou­los, Mor­gan Ni­chol­son, and Ly­dia Potts. He also is sur­vived by beloved long-time fam­ily friend, Ruth Horner of West­min­ster. He will be greatly missed, es­pe­cially by his faith­ful dog, Sum­mer, who re­mained by his side through­out his bat­tle with cancer, and guinea pig, Panda.

A cel­e­bra­tion of Chad’s life was held Aug. 27 at the Pres­by­te­rian Church of Ch­ester­town, with fu­neral ar­range­ments pro­vided by the Fel­lows, Helfen­bein & New­nam Fu­neral Home, Ch­ester­town.
