Bob G. Meyers(1935 - 2012)

Bob G. Meyers March 21, 1935 - November 15, 2012 Bobby (Bob) Gene Meyers was born March 21, 1935 in Minco, Oklahoma and passed away November 15, 2012 in Bakersfield California. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother. He is survived by his daughter Kim and husband Phil Mygatt, daughter Lisa and husband George Anderson; his grandchildren Danielle and husband Michael Garcia, Matthew Williams, Ryah Mygatt and the sparkle in his eye, great-granddaughter Elle Rose Garcia. He served in the United States Air Force from 1953 to 1957. He was a carpenter by trade and a long time member of Carpenters Local 743. He was definitely a one of a kind guy; proud to be a veteran and a member of American Legion Post 26, a hardworking man, an avid walker and talker. He enjoyed watching NASCAR and displayed it by the way he drove (you had to be there) and OU Football...Boomer Sooner! Bob loved animals and his grand-cat and grand-dogs will miss him very much. Dad always had a way of making you smile; we will never forget his little chuckle. We would like to thank everyone for their kind thoughts, support and prayers. Special thanks to the staff at Redwood Village Gardens and Optimal Hospice. Rest in peace Dad, you are now in a better place and reunited with your brother and best friend, JW. Services are scheduled at the Bakersfield National Cemetery on November 30, 2012 at 10:45 am.
