Mrs. Meyer & family, Our deepest condolences to the Meyer family. We met Bob "the builder" at the workshops in Home Depot of Encinitas, our son who is now 10 years old, loved him for all the awesome workshops we attended at Home Depot, a few years back. He always brought some interesting pieces to share with all of us every Saturday. He was very enthusiastic about his presentations on how to "build it", that is how we called him Bob the builder. I know, he is in a better place but we are sad to hear the news today. Your husband, dad, and grandfather was the greatest! Very kind person. He shared his knowledge and happiness with us about his woody vehicle he was about to buy and be delivered a few years back, and, yes, and we saw him at the "Encinitas Woody Festival" after he had retired from doing the workshops at Home Depot. He will be in our memories forever and how lucky we are to have met him. We would like to share a pic of our son with Bob if the family is interested. The Gomez family. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob, they never made a nicer guy.I remember when you were teaching at RSF. Over the years we shared a lot a lot of time and words together. I will always remember the trust and confidence you placed in me. You were a super Rotarian as well as a great friend. RIP.
Bob, you epitomized everything that Rotary stood for. We will miss you but never forget you.
Roger Bolus, Past President Encinitas Rotary
I love you Bob and you were the best team partner a gal could ever have.....you introduced into Rancho and I will never forget your kind manners and just a gentleman. May God be with you. Love, Donna
What a terrible coincidence I should learn of Bob's passing today. Two weekends ago my son and I cooked up some homemade rockets (see the attached video), and I wrote up the fun experience for Make: magazine. The editor asked me to provide some background info on myself this morning, and as I thought back all those years ago, I realized it was Mr. Meyer - our science teacher - that really brought out the makers in all of us. Patient, fun, and passionate about anything that went up - he was an inspiration to all of us. He taught us how to build rockets, how to fly them, and when they failed, he helped us figure out why. He will be missed, but always remain in my heart and hands. What an honor to have known and learned from him.
Rest in Peace Bob, it was a pleasure working with you at the Encinitas Home Depot. My condolences to the Meyer family, may God grace you with his loving comfort during this very difficult time.
I am so sorry for your loss. Bob was a very special guy and I loved working with him at the Encinitas Home Depot. I will cherish all the things he helped my kids to build in his weekend kids clinics. He will be missed. Love you Bob!
Uncle BOB you will live for ever in my heart, ,
A warm and gentle smile, a tender and giving heart ~ you were truly a good man, Bob Meyer. One of the best I have ever known...rest in peace...bobbi bonace`
Bob was an amazing, sweet, and genuine man. I was one of the interact kids that worked on toys, Mexico house builds, and Encinitas parade festivities. He will be remembered and his dedication to the community have helped students, like myself, develop into the strong leaders we are today. Thank you, Bob.
You will live forever in my memory and deep in my heart, you were bigger than life, but more importantly you made others feel bigger. You taught me so much about life and about people just by watching you connect with others and give endlessly of yourself. Thanks Bob for being such a great example, because you accepted me and empowered me to be who I am, I am able to do that for others...a true gift. You were never a step-father to me, you treated me as your own and I felt it. Wherever you are I know you are enjoying life, "planning" something, most likely to help someone else, and dreaming of things others don't have the courage to dream, but you always believed were possible. Thanks for all the stories. Know you are never forgotten and always loved.
Rest in peace Bob. You lived a full life and always a joy to be around. You will be missed.
Bob was my brother-in-law, but I loved him as if he were my own brother. I'll miss his wry humor and the long discussions laced with much laughter I had with Bob and my sister. He was the nicest, most honest and decent man I've ever known. You will be missed, brother. I love you.
