Bob Meyer passed away peacefully on Feb. 8, 2013 at the Wisconsin Veteran's Home in King, WI with his wife Glenna [Dutch] at his side.
Bob was born on Nov. 16, 1924 in Oshkosh, WI. He graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1942. He enlisted into the Navy and served his country as a shipping clerk in San Francisco, CA during WWII. He married Glenna [Dutch] Rose in 1947, and they raised three children. After their children had grown, the Meyer's moved from Oshkosh to their "Shy-A-Way" cottage in Redgarnite, WI.
Bob was a hard worker, a "Jack of all trades," and had many jobs during his lifetime. He worked for North Central Airlines in Oshkosh and became the manager of the fledgling Appleton Regional Airport. He was the manager of the AAA Travel Agency and was a foreman at Rockwell International. Bob retired from Arrowhead Conveyor Corp at the age of 64, but he continued to work 20 more years at Wal-Mart in Berlin before finally retiring at the age of 84.
Bob was an avid Packer fan, devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He loved playing games and camping with his grandkids, taking them to rodeos, and just enjoying time together at the cottage. His unconditional love and smiling face will never be forgotten.
Bob will be sadly missed by his wife, Dutch, of 66 years and by three children, Jillene [Tom] Hoheisel, Crystal River, FL; Joye [David] Moon, Oshkosh; and Jack A. Meyer, Oshkosh. He is also survived by: three grandchildren, Jessica Maynard Geurts, Oshkosh; Nathan [Karen] Moon, Tallahassee, FL; and Rachel [Mike] Jaciuk, Milwaukee, WI; and one great grandchild, Jared Geurts, Oshkosh. Two sisters-in-law: Lois Rose, Neenah, WI; Mardell Meyer, Oshkosh, plus numerous nieces and nephews also survive him.
Cremation will take place at Maple Crest Funeral Home in Waupaca, WI. There will be a private internment at Lakeview Cemetery in Oshkosh. Condolences may be sent to Maple Crest Funeral Home, N2620 Hwy 22, Waupaca, WI 54981.
The family would like to thank the entire fourth floor nursing staff at Olson Hall for all the kindness and care given to our father since he moved there in 2011. You cared for him as if he was your own and made his life fun and full. We would also like to thank Theda Care Hospice Program for all their help in his final days.
