James "Jim" Stephen Meyer

August 7, 1946May 31, 2019

Meyer, James "Jim" Stephen, 72, retired machinist for FMI, passed away May 31, 2019. Jim was a hard worker and true perfectionist; from fixing things up around the house, or his passion of restoring Street Rods, he had a way of expertly completing each project. Above all else, he was a devoted and caring family man. He was ever present in their lives and worked tirelessly to meet his family's needs and the needs of others. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend who will be dearly missed.

He is preceded in death by his parents, James A. and Helen Meyer and mother, Nona (Henry) Schmitz.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Claudia (Mercer) Meyer; son, Dusty (Tara) Meyer; daughter, Nikki (Joe) Lubbers; grandchildren, Rhiley Wall, Makenna Meyer, Dashall Meyer, Colt Lubbers, Kimber Lubbers; siblings, Pat (Jerry) Newby, Dorothy (Mike) Vogeli, Tom Meyer, Don Meyer, Paul (Kaye) Meyer, Connie Bucy, Victoria Andrus, Mike (Carol) Schmitz.

Jim's Celebration of Life Service will be held 1 p.m. Friday, June 7, 2019 at Resthaven Mortuary Chapel. The family requests, weather permitting, to drive your Street Rods to Jim's service in honor of his favorite pastime.

Memorials can be made to The Lords Diner, 520 N. Broadway St, Wichita, KS 67214 and Kansas Food Bank, 1919 E. Douglas Ave, Wichita, KS 67211.
