John Meyer, 84, our wonderful dad and grandfather went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Friday, September 30, 2016. Visitation will be 6:00 to 8:00 PM Monday, October 3, 2016, at Elmwood Funeral Home, 750 Hwy 277 South.

John was born May 16, 1932 in Washington, Missouri to the late John L. Meyer and Pansy Birdwell Meyer. He served in the United States Air Force for 22 years, retiring as a Master Sergeant. He went on to pursue business in real estate. Most mornings, John could be found at the Dixie Pig, eating breakfast and discussing life issues with his many friends.
John is survived by three children, Michael Meyer and wife Deborah, Trudy Meyer, and Deanne Meyer and partner Gary Phipps; granddaughter Kristy Cantu; five brothers and one sister, Mary Crawford, Bernard Meyer, Tommie Meyer and wife Ruth, Walter Meyer and wife Kathy, Larry Meyer and wife Carolyn, Richard Meyer and wife Kathy, and sister-in-law Marlene Meyer, all of Missouri. He is also survived by extended family and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to thank Hospice of the Big Country, who so lovingly cared for our father. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice of the Big Country, Food Bank of Abilene or your favorite charity.
Hello Deanne and Trudy, I am sorry to hear of your loss. I hope everyone is well.
God bless and take care!

My thoughts and prayers are with Johns Family. I enjoyed my real estate interactions with him over several decades and as a young man in the business his advise and mentoring was appreciated. We appreciated his business over the years.
