MOUNT VERNON — William “Bill” Meyer, 83, of Mount Vernon, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, at his home. He was born on May 10, 1934, in Cleveland, the son of Paul and Minnie (Saleveski) Meyer.
Bill was a former member of the Colonial City Moose Lodge and proudly served in the U.S. Army.

Bill owned and operated the Parts House in Mount Vernon for over 20 years before retiring as owner and operator of Bill’s Auto Electric. “I am brilliant” was a phrase that Bill often used and most will acknowledge that he was a man with many answers to questions asked. In his free time, he enjoyed camping, traveling in the motorhome, fishing, dancing to Phil Dirt and the Dozers, and tending to his organic garden before “organic” was a term.

Bill is survived by his two daughters, Sue (Al) Lindeman of Howard, Diane (Rick Monahan) Meyer of Mount Vernon; and his companion, Ellen Straub.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Connie Ruth (McCurdy) Meyer in 2007; a brother, Robert Meyer; and a sister, Carol Jansen.

Friends may call on Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. at the Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home, 201 Newark Road, Mount Vernon, where military honors provided by the Knox County Joint Veterans Council will begin at 7 p.m.

Memorial contributions in Bill’s name may be made to Kindred Hospice.

The Dowds-Snyder Funeral Home of Mount Vernon is honored to serve the family of William “Bill” Meyer.
