Former Hobe Sound legislator Doc Myers dies

Dr. William G. "Doc" Myers, who served as a Legislator from Hobe Sound for over 20 years in both the Florida House of Representatives (1978-1982) and the Florida Senate (1982-2000), has died at the age of 79.
Myers was a 1986 candidate for governor in the Republican primary.
UPDATE from TCPalm:
Former State Sen. William G. “Doc” Myers died Tuesday afternoon at Jupiter Medical Center, following a lengthy illness, according to longtime friend and former legislative aide Byron “Mac” McCartney.

Myers, 79, also was the chairman of the Martin County Commission in 1972, when the first comprehensive land-use plan was approved and, as commissioner and legislator, he was a champion of the second Palm City bridge.

Myers was in public life for almost 39 years, when he retired from the senate in favor of State Rep. Ken Pruitt of Port St. Lucie in 1999. Myers served as county commissioner, state representative and senator.

During his legislative career, he was an influential vote for medical and health care issues, and took special care of veterans’ needs.
