Robert "Bob" John Meyer, age 75, a resident of Grantsburg, WI passed away on August 21, 2022 at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN.
Bob was born on July 2, 1947 in Frederic, WI to parents Willard and Dorothy (Williams) Meyer.
After graduating, Bob began his military career in the National Guard then transferred to the U.S. Marine Corps in 1968 until 1972(serving two tours in Vietnam). He finished his military career serving in the National Guard Reserves until honorably discharged.
Bob had several professions before going into business with his brother Jim Meyer. Together they owned and operated Jim-Bob Builders for many years. Bob was very active in his community. He served on the village board and was a member of the Grantsburg American Legion.
