Though we are not related, JB Meyers was like an uncle to me. I spent a great deal of time in my parents' cafe, the White Spot, which was located across Rogers Avenue for JB's DX Station. I used to go over there and pester JB and crew. When I was around 16 I took my old car and some new spark plugs to JB and asked him if they would install the plugs in my car. He did, but he told me he was going to bring some bacon and eggs over to the White Spot for me to fix for his breakfast. He had a comical way of pointing out the audacity of this then 16 year-old, and it made a lasting impression. Rest In Peace JB!

My Uncle JB was such a wonderful man. He treat all the cousins like his grandchildren and was a patriarch for the family. He used to let me help wash the car windows at the DX station and I loved getting a cold coke from the machine. He will be missed greatly by so many. Love and prayers from Clayton and I.

I offer my condolences to the family. Hansi gave me a job at the service station during my high school years and I learned a lot from him about cars and how to take care of them. He was always so patient and helpful and I looked forward to going to work with him. His smile was contagious and always present. I am proud to have called him my cousin

I had the privilege of babysitting with John and Ann's children when they were little I believe I was about 11. John's mother my Aunt Mary Meyers was instrumental in getting me to do this, they were truly good children. I remember that my pay was 25 cents per hour. Always enjoyed seeing JB and Ann at the St. Scho reunions.
Will offer a Mass for him on Monday at our daily Mass.

I just wanted to say that I will be praying for the family.
JB was my Great Uncle. I do remember when he owned the gas station and all the fun family gatherings, especially 4th of July.
I know he will be missed, but he is with his brothers and sisters in Heaven

Please accept my condolences on the death of J.B. All the memories I have of him are connected with "Hance" or "Hans." When my dad, Paul Wewers, had business downtown Ft. Smith and my brothers and I (youngsters then) were with him at St. Boniface, dad would drop us off at Meyers DX until he finished his business in town. Raymond, Larry and I probably were more of a nuisance than anything, but Hance always had time for us.

I will offer my Mass next Monday at the funeral for his eternal rest.
