Clay Myer, the Centre resident who was president of the Alabama Rural Letter Carriers Association, died suddenly Thursday night at his home. He was 54.Myer had been re-elected president a week earlier at the group’s annual convention in Huntsville. It would have been his third term.A resident of Centre, Myer loved the people on his Southside mail route, his wife, Kelly, said Friday.“And they loved him,” she said. “There was this special little lady in her 90s who lived by herself, and Clay would help her with whatever needed to be done. He started taking her groceries because her son had died. Clay said she didn’t have anyone else.”Myer was also a strong advocate for the letter carriers. He regularly lobbied U.S. senators and representatives to improve and expand postal service.“He was one of those people who just shined,” said Ronnie Stutts, vice president of the National Rural Letter Carriers Association.“He was as fine a person as you would ever want to be around. He was a dedicated family man and he did a great job when he visited with members of Congress on our behalf,” Stutts said. “I just talked to him yesterday and I saw him last week. He was doing his usual fantastic job.”
