His devotion to his faith and his fellowman were expressed each day. Meyer did not formally volunteer with organizations, but if the list of individuals he helped and extended kindnesses to were listed here, it would fill columns and pages. His church, his family and people in the Chestnut, Mount Pulaski and Latham area will be without a wonderful human being.

Memorials may be made to Zion Lutheran Church or Zion Lutheran School, both in Mount Pulaski.
