Hugh Myers Death, Obituary – Hugh K. Myers, a resident of Lake View Place in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, and formerly of Appleton, Wisconsin, passed away on Friday, January 20, 2023, following a brief rehabilitation stay at Villa Loretto nursing home in Mt. Calvary. Hugh K. Myers was originally from Appleton, Wisconsin. During the latter days of his life, he was attended to by his devoted family members.
Hugh was born in Otsego, Michigan on December 23, 1942. His parents were Hugh S. Myers and Eleanor (née Kirby) Myers. Hugh spent his childhood years in Otsego. Hugh went to Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, and it was there that he danced “Under the Sea” with the woman who would later become his wife, Martha (Marty) Kaas. They tied the knot on August 19, 1967, at Kanley Chapel on the Western Michigan University campus after he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Paper Technology and Marty earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Education.
After that, Hugh pursued and received his Master of Science in Paper Technology the same year that Marty began his career as an elementary school teacher. Before relocating to Appleton, Wisconsin in 1971, the couple lived in Dayton, Ohio. There, Hugh started working for an affiliate of Appleton Papers (which is now known as Appvion), and Marty continued teaching while also earning her master’s degree from Wright State University.
Hugh and Marty moved to Appleton, Wisconsin in 1971. After settling in Appleton, Hugh devoted the subsequent 34 years of his life to his career as a chemist at Appleton Papers. Hugh Myers Photography was a hobby business that he ran for 39 years, during which time he documented weddings on the weekends while also working to establish himself as a professional photographer. After relocating to Appleton, Marty quit her job as a teacher, and she and Hugh started their own family with the arrival of their first child, a daughter named Amy, and then their second child, a son named Scott.
