Robert “Dusty” K. Meyer, age 83, went to be with the lord on Aug. 26, 2020, after years of battling with Alzheimer’s.
Born June 25, 1937, to Karl H. and Elizabeth A Meyer, Dusty was a longtime Chester Township resident.
Bob was married to the love of his life Judith for 63 years. They started their life together in Hawaii, where Bob was stationed in the United States Air Force. They returned to Ohio to start their family and their many adventures together.
Bob and Judy’s adventures consisted of calf roping, team roping, barrel racing, 4-H advisors (as well as doing 4-H with their kids), sailing, hunting, training dogs for hunting and hunting tests, woodworking, drag racing his 1940’s willy’s, camping out West and many more adventures.
Bob really enjoyed his time at Weslaco Sportsmen’s Club, where he did trap and pistol shooting, and Nostalgic Nations Drag Racing.
Bob is survived by his children, Lynn P. Meyer, Robert Scott Meyer and Jeanne E. (Allan) Jefferson; grandchildren, Robert J. “RJ” Jefferson, Sara (TJ) Zimmerman, Christina Meyer; and great-grandchildren, Ava and Evan Zimmerman.
Bob will be joining his beautiful wife, Judy; parents, Karl H. and Elizabeth A. Meyer; sister, Barbra J (Meyer) Williams; daughter Carol L. Meyer; and in-laws, Gerald and Margret (nee Copeland) Propst in Heaven.
Visitation for Bob will be held at Gattozzi and Son Funeral Home, 12524 Chillicothe Road, Chesterland, on Sunday, Aug. 30, 2020, from 1-5 p.m. Bob’s request is if you attend his calling hours that you do not get dressed up. He wants everyone in jeans or hunting clothes as that is who he was.
Bob was touched by so many people and has loved so many of you. He will be missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Bob’s name may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at www.alz.org or to Hospice of the Western Reserve at www.hospicewr.org.
