At the memorial today’s (Jan. 19, 2014), several TV news interviews of Julian were played, including a KCBS TV interview, where Myers recalled, “helping Marilyn Monroe make it to the set for a morning shoot after the actress had been out late the night before partying at an event,” he said ‘I was the only guy trying to get her out of bed,” he joked, also explaining that he “was a happily married man.”

Myers died (Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013) last month just a few months after his wife of 43 years, Patsy Nanny Myers, who died in October, in Las Vegas.

His son, a well-known New York Publicists, Eric Myers, who chaired the memorial said of his father, “Dad was a loving father, he adored us and supported whatever we did,” he said. “He was that way with every kid he met, and that side of him was treasurable.”

Another son, Jon Myers talked about his Dad as everyone’s publicist if you knew him at all.

“Julian was probably everyone’s best publicity agent,” he said. “If you knew my Dad you were represented. He did a phenomenal job not just for his family members, but for everyone. I have heard so many little stories over the past week on how Julian Myers helped so many people and made them feel welcomed”

Jon Myers said his father had so many accomplishments and if you took one thing like winning the senior Olympics, or teaching at LMU or USC that would be enough for one’s career.

As a professor at UCLA film publicity he continued to promoted everything and everyone Hollywood.

“And if you look at what he did for the motion picture industry, he was a walking historical empire,” Myers said

“I believe we shouldn’t judge people because of their political leanings. We all have different experiences and add them up differently. Attack or defend concepts, if we wish, but – because of them – individuals. Millions of good people are in all groups. Let’s make it our privilege to continue to add to the world’s progress.”   - Julian F. Myers  1918 – 2014.

Contributions can be made in Julian Myers’ memory to The Motion Picture Fund, of which he fought so hard to keep open.
