Myers Mortuary & Cremation Services is founded on the legacy of Mr. Claude McCollom, a man who left an indelible mark in the community. Mr. Myers intends to continue the legacy by providing Columbia and the surrounding area with a way for our families to celebrate the life of their loved ones when it ends and for the living to gather social support to bring closure and move ahead with their lives. With over 15 years of service to the Columbia Metropolitan community, Myers' cornerstone and mission is based on its dedication to meeting the needs of families first; and to accommodate them in a funeral service that is uniquely designed for their loved one.
