Meyer, John
1968 - 2017
John Todd Meyer "Todd" was born June 29, 1968 in Cleveland, Ohio. He died peacefully at Kobaker House after a two week- long illness with pneumonia and sepsis, both of which he fought on and off for six years. He was preceded in death by grandparents John and Genevieve Meyer and Charles and Mary Krichbaum. He is survived by parents John and Regina Meyer; brothers Charles (Elizabeth) and Michael (Laura); nieces and nephews Jackson, Caden, Tessa, Anna, Quinn, and Connor; as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Todd graduated from Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham Virginia and attended Florida Southern University and The Ohio State University. He participated in football and basketball while at Hargrave Military. He was an avid Ohio State fan and, though he enjoyed all sports, he especially loved golf. Todd had a lively curiosity about history; he also deeply enjoyed watching old movies and playing with the family dogs. Todd loved his family above all else, finding a balanced state of serenity and peace in simply observing everyone enjoy life and interact in ways he wished he could. He was a compassionate person and was fiercely loyal to those close to him. Following a traumatic brain injury in his early twenties, Todd worked with determination and focus through a long and grueling rehabilitation to learn to walk and speak again. After the injury, he fought valiantly against mental illness for most of his adult life. Through his lifelong quest for goodness and peace, he made us better people. He taught us to seize the moment; he taught us to appreciate life for its smallest treasures and for its true meaning. He will be missed sorely, but he is with God where he belongs. We love you, Todd. Donations to Kobacker House in honor of John Todd Meyer are requested in lieu of flowers, 800 McConnell Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43214. Condolences to www.rutherfordfuneralhome.com. Rutherford-Corbin Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
