On a Personal Note
Who has been the most influential person in your life? Why?
My father, David L. Myers, has had by far the most influence on my professional career. He was also an attorney, and during the time I worked with him, prior to his retirement, I learned so much about the profession. Not only the work, but also how to treat people. He is such a well-respected individual in our community. I have always strived to continue his fine example.
Where is your favorite place to eat in the Kennett Square?
We have so many great restaurants in Kennett Square, that is tough to answer. My wife and I love eating at La Verona, not only because their food is always delicious, but my wife loves the generous wine “pour”.
Time travel or read minds – which would you choose and why?
Time travel. I think you can do more public good with the ability to travel into the past and the future. In addition, you can make some good investment choices to better your financial situation. Just like Forrest Gump, I would buy some stock in a “fruit company” back in the 1980’s.
What TV show or shows are you currently watching that you can’t get enough of?
I don’t watch many shows, more sports. My wife and I just finished Ozark, which was great. We are now watching Stranger Things, with two more episodes to drop. Sometimes after work you just need some mindless entertainment. (We couldn’t agree more on that, David!)
