Robert Francis "Bob" Meyers, age 69 of Cannon Falls, MN, died peacefully at his home on Sunday morning, April 19, 2020.
Bob was born on August 9, 1950 in Farmington, MN, the son of John and Ruth (Fox) Meyers. He graduated from Cannon Falls High School and was a member of St. Pius V Catholic Church in Cannon Falls.
He married Joyce K. Ashton on April 29, 1972 at St. Pius V Catholic Church, Cannon Falls. Bob had worked at Dabelow Pontiac in Cannon Falls, Indian Creak Store in Indian Creek, WI, and Cemstone, where he later retired. He was then VIP (Very Important Parts runner) at Mike’s Napa Auto in Cannon Falls.
He will be remembered for putting others first, greeting you with a warm smile and hugs, and sharing an “I love you” whenever he left. He was kind, caring, had a good heart, and a strength that carried him through his illness. He even continued to take care of and help Joyce throughout his illness. His grandchildren will remember their pontoon rides, camping and family outings, and how he would share his ice cream. Bob was very proud of his sons for serving in the military and for the family men they have become.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 48 years, Joyce; his sons, Stephen (Catherine) of Monticello and Zachary (Amber) of Columbia Heights; five grandchildren, Holden, Ernie, Evie, Kinsley, and Charlotte; eight siblings, Nick (Kay) Meyers, Anna (Terry) Burvee, Rick (Lola), Shirley (Dave) Weller, Pam (Jim) Amacher, and Jackie (Steve) VanGuilder, all of Cannon Falls, Mary (Marty) Blel of River Falls, WI, and Mike (Tricia) of Cannon Falls; in-laws, Bob (Faye) Wellman of Litchfield, NE, Teresa (Charlie) Niebur of Randolph, Susan (Steve) Kulikowski of Andover, Merrilee Weber and Mike Ashton (Sally Provo), all of Cannon Falls, and Kelly (Tim) Brewer of Goodhue; three aunts, many nieces, nephews and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John “Jack” and Ruth Meyers; parents-in-law, Mike and Mitzi Ashton; brother-in-law, Doug Weber; and special friend, Darl Boone.
