Born on May 5, 1939 to Anna Jane (Boyer) and Ralph Edward

Bob knew the answer to every trivia question or crossword puzzle, and had a witty pun or anecdote for every situation. Bob was not one to “toot his own horn.” The humble, frugal way he lived his life taught his children and grandchildren much about what makes a person successful.
Bob is survived by his three children, Robert Wesley Meyer and his wife Tracy of Egg Harbor Twp, Carolyn Jo Meyer and her husband David Kacmarsky of Point Pleasant, and Andrew Robert Meyer and his wife Christy of Brick; five grandchildren, Radek, Dylan, Evan, Preston, and Summer Jo; his nieces Suzanne, Cheryl, Cindi and nephew Bradley; and his “big sister” and confidante Peggy Grundon of Harrisburg. He also leaves behind life-long friends and church family members.
Bob joins a boisterous game of pinnacle already in progress. He was predeceased by his parents and by his sisters Audrey Reed and Pauline Wilson, who most likely greeted him with a tall glass of iced tea and a bowl of pretzels before dealing the next round.
Bob would call his children daily, letting them know he was “just checkin’ in.” The family appreciates the warm thoughts and condolences of friends who have “checked in” and brought comfort during this sad time.
