A celebration of life service will be held at 3:00 pm, Saturday, July 15 at Baue Funeral Home, 3950 West Clay St., St. Charles, MO 63301. Visitation will follow until 7:00 pm.
Both a devoted husband and father, Bob is survived by his wife, Doris Meyer, as well as his children, Gina (Marty) Meyer, Tony Meyer, and Jamie (Brian) Callery; and grandchildren Amber Vanderpool, Danyelle (Brad) Dieckhaus, Jordan (Jade) Meyer, Nick Meyer, Samantha Meyer, Chelse Meyer, Jessica Callery, Alexa Callery, Emma Callery, and seven great grandchildren. Bob was also a loving brother to Larry Meyer, John Meyer, Sherry (John) Giblin, Cindy (Joe) Duncan, and Denise (Glen) Laws.
Bob was born February 7, 1948 in St. Louis, MO to Eugene and Gloria Meyer. He attended Laboure High school for three years and then graduated from DeAndreis High School in 1967.
An avid soccer player, Bob played CYC soccer for both his school teams (St. Philip Neri and Florissant Valley), as well as numerous St. Louis club teams.
Anyone who knew him, knew that being a Vietnam Veteran was a part of who Bob was. During the Vietnam War, 1968 and 1969, Bob served as a sergeant SGT in the Army Infantry Division. After the war, Bob turned his love of cooking for people and entertaining them into a career, becoming a restauranteur of several businesses throughout North County - including Cedar Inn and Sherwood Forest. His other hobbies included playing golf, watching sports games, gambling, and especially spending time with his many grandchildren.
Bob struggled with health issues for more than a decade. In 2014, Bob was blessed to receive a heart transplant, which allowed him to enjoy 9 more years of life, and he made every moment count. One of the kindest souls on this planet, Bob was a gentle man, who always gave selflessly to ensure those around him were okay and had what they needed. Despite facing countless challenges in the later part of his life, Bob took everything on with incredible strength, courage, and a “glass half full” spirit! Bob will be remembered as a genuine, kind, and easygoing friend to everyone (even if he just met you in line at the grocery store) who will be deeply missed.
