Obituary Notice

Robert (Bob) Charles Meyer, age 77, of Three Rivers, Michigan, passed away at his home, surrounded by family, following an extended illness on the morning of February 27, 2024. He was born on November 8, 1946, to Leo and Jennie Meyer. Bob spent his childhood in the area, having attended Three Rivers Schools.

He welcomed five sons into the world – Robert Jr., Timothy, Scott, Jacob, and Gabriel. Bob’s focus was always on providing the best life possible for his boys. As a father, he strove to instill the values he grew up with in his sons, including respect, accountability, love for family, and always moving forward no matter what the world threw at you.

Bob acquired multiple skills during his life, including heavy equipment operator, HVAC technician, pipefitter, and certified welder. Over his career, he worked for Bloom & Meyer Construction, Clifton Engineering, Cook Nuclear Plant, and W. Soule. He was a member of Local 190 and Local 357. After retiring, Bob enjoyed his life to the fullest, traveling with his wife, hunting, fishing, golfing, and watching westerns and nature shows. You could often find him in his recliner with a dog on his lap, taking in whatever wildlife show caught his attention.

Bob was well known for his humorous and fun-loving nature, always trying to make the people around him smile, laugh, and feel welcomed. He was filled with life lessons that he passed on to those he loved and found joy in the simpler things in life. A float down the river with a line in the water or walking in the woods was Bob’s idea of a perfect way to spend a day. He is now at peace, likely fishing or golfing while drinking his childhood favorite, sarsaparilla, a memory that every member of the family has heard about throughout the years.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents, Leo and Jennie. Surviving are his wife, Denise Meyer; his children, Robert (Claudia) Meyer Jr., Tim (Marla) Meyer, Scott (Lisa) Meyer, Jacob (Kristyn) Meyer, and Gabriel (Amber) Meyer, in addition to his step-children, Dierdra (Jason) Leach, Damon Barrett, and Dan (Emily) Miles as well as his many grandchildren. Bob will also be greatly missed by his siblings, Leo/ Cork (Dee) Meyer, Jennie Lee Graham, Thomas (Jackie) Meyer, Joy (Thomas) Spahn, and his many friends and extended family.

  1. Just heard of Bob’s passing. Many memories rush in at a time like this. Whether it was early in the morning on the way to work somewhere, at the bottom of a ditch helping him line up pipe for a weld, or on the golf course in recent years, Bob was good to be around. I learned a lot from him and his brothers, probably more than I would care to admit . I will always have good thoughts about him and all the time spent with him and the entire family.

    Our thoughts are with all of you at this time.

  2. It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone you love but the depth of the loss only reflects the depth of the love. There’s a poem by Linda Ellis called “The Dash” and it describes the meaning of the dash between the dates we are born and when we die. The poem reminds us that what’s important is not the things we own but how we live our lives. The last verse says “So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent YOUR dash?” I’m certain my brother’s dash reflects the love and dedication he had for his children, his wife, his family, and his friends — and of course golf and fishing. I love and miss you Bob.
    Your sister Joy.

  3. Bob was my younger brother and I can’t begin to tell you how much I miss him. He and Denise were always there to help me on any project I tried when I moved back to Three Rivers after my husband died. In fact he and his boys were there to help me move into my condo.
    He and Denise wintered next to me in Florida for a few years and I cherish the times we had together.
    He was a man I am proud and happy to say was my brother. When he died we all lost. RIP I loved you and still do.

  4. Bob and I attended Johnnycake school for a year together, we became good friends. I moved away and never saw him again until after we were both retired. We both played golf at Pineview, when we saw each other its like we picked up right where we left off. We became golf partners on a Senior morning league as well as playing many rounds in between league play. We had many laughs and great times I will always Cherish.

  5. I remember Bob from early high school. He was a good friend.
    I was impressed that he rode his scooter to school and ate breakfast at The Squeeze Inn before school started. I believe his parents owned the Squeeze Inn.
    I moved away as a sophomore so I haven.’t seen him in decades. The memories remain.
    Rest in peace my friend,

  6. It saddens me to hear of Bob’s death. This came too soon. Bob was gifted in many professional areas and I was always getting advice from him for my amateur welding. He will be missed and to his family please accept my sincere condolences.
