   Lloyd R. Meyer, 68, of Walkerton, passed away on Saturday, January 4th, at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Plymouth, IN, after a sudden illness.

  Lloyd was born on May 22nd, 1951, in St. Louis, MO to the late Oliver H.L. and Selma F. (Minnkemann) Meyer. Lloyd is survived by his daughter, Angela R. Meyer of Mishawaka, IN and his son, William L. Meyer of Columbus, OH from his previous marriage to Deborah S. Wolff.  He is also survived by three brothers: Arnold (Jeanne, deceased) of Highland, IL, Calvin (Sandra) of Huntley, IL and Warren (Kathi) Meyer of Jerseyville, IL. along with several nieces and nephews and his loving companion, Mitzi Knepper.

  Following high school in Illinois, he was a graduate of University of Missouri- St. Louis. Lloyd came to the Michiana area in 1992 from Pittsburgh, PA. He retired from National Steel and became a bus driver for the John Glenn School Corporation, which he cherished.  Lloyd would love to, as he would say, “piddle-outdoors” and enjoyed gardening, going to auctions and the theatre, golfing, canning and being with his loving family. He truly enjoyed being a school bus driver and taking students to school, band  events, athletic events and field trips.

  In lieu of flowers, the family has requested memorial contributions be made in Lloyd’s name to the John Glenn Scholarship Fund or Daniel Fortlander Memorial Scholarship Fund, in care of John Glenn High School, 201 John Glenn Drive, Walkerton, IN 46574.

  Visitation for Lloyd will be on Saturday, January 11th at Walkerton United Methodist Church, 1000 Georgia Street, Walkerton, IN. from 10:00 A.M. until 12:00 P.M. A Celebration of Lloyd’s Life will begin at 12:00 P.M.  The service will be officiated by Pastor Denny Soule and Richard Fansler.

  The HANLEY and Sons Funeral Home and Cremation Service “Walkerton Chapel” handled arrangements and extends its deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to the Meyer and Knepper families.

Lloyd was from one of the original farming families in BlackJack, MO, area farming off old Shackleford/Vale roads. Our 1st & 2nd grade writing/reading assignments in Mrs Mauch's Salem Lutheran School late 1950's classroom was to write about 'what-you-did-last-weekend': PINOCHLE was Lloyd's never failing reply! 'Counting Cards' made him wise at math; he was a sharp guy anyway. Farming families were close. Gosh how indelible of a memory 'pinochle' burned. He was 'wirelike' strong, too; guess from all that farm work-and growing up with Three Brothers! We later 'suffered' together through accounting, calculus, economics, and statistic classes at 'MIT' (Missouri In Town). His wedding song with Debbie was the Carpenter's "We've Only Just Begun". We both became 'bookkeepers' from Hazelwood H.S. class of 1969-and damn proud of it-and then went on our separate ways. And I am very sure after his retirement from the financial world he was a damn find bus driver, especially with all stories he could relate of growing up as a 'farmers-kid'.

Lloyd was Honest & Measured as the day was long; something some of the professors at 'MIT' did not comprehend and something high school did not prepare us for- - - in 'those-days'. His childhood home is likely a subdivision today. But, his friendship and fellowship will always burn warmly-until we meet again./t
