Robert Eugene Meyer
July 25, 1929 – December 1, 2019
Robert Eugene Meyer joined his Lord and Savior, December 1, 2019. He is survived by his four children; Barry, Sue, Nancy, and Judy as well as eleven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. He was married to Ann (Speulstra) Meyer for nearly 65 years. Ann passed away in October, 2014.
Bob and Ann met at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI and were married. In late 1952 they settled in Denver after Bob was discharged from the US Army. He served as both an infantryman and medic during the Korean conflict.
Bob worked for his father-in-law Ed Speulstra at the South Pearl Hardware store until 1960. Hardware and paint became his career until he retired at age 62 from the Ace Hardware Corporation in 1981. During those years, Bob and Ann raised their four children and were active members of the Third Christian Reformed Church and the Denver Christian Schools. After they both retired, he and Ann were active travelers for the next 15 years, exploring Africa, Europe, Russia, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand as well as their annual trips to Mexico. They also took great joy in planning family reunions for the entire family. They were loving grandparents to their grandchildren and great grandchildren.
They moved to the Clermont Park Living Center in 2011 as Ann’s Parkinson’s disease progressed. Bob was a faithful husband even as Ann was moved to skilled nursing. After she passed away, Bob and his beloved dog Barney greeted folks as they came through the main lobby for several years. Bob will be remembered for his outgoing personality and a big smile. His life was marked by love and faithfulness to his Lord and Savior, his family, his friends, and his community.
