Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Robert Lynn Meyers announces his passing on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 at the age of 85 years.

Robert was born on November 6, 1935 in Emo Township to Hans and Agnes Meyers. He grew up on the farm with his sister and two brothers. Robert attended public and secondary school in Emo, Ontario. He was a farmer at heart and enjoyed using the machinery and driving the truck to town. He had a fondness for the animals and looked forward to seeing them when he got home after school.

Following his schooling, Robert worked in Atikokan at the Steep Rock Iron Mine driving rock truck. He loved to teach the new recruits how to drive these big trucks. He worked for a variety of trucking companies and in 1969, he began work at Superior Propane as a serviceman. He remained in this job for 25 years. He retired at the age of 61 but continued trucking and servicing gas equipment after that. Bob also converted two of his trucks to propane as well.

Robert was a kind and gentle man. He always loved a good story and looked for the positive in everyone. He will be deeply missed by his wife of 51 years, Beatrice Meyers (nee Andrews), children Emily (Rob) Meyers-Armstrong and Darcy (Jennifer) Meyers; grandchildren Alexandra Armstong and Karlee Daniels; great-grandchild Jack. He is also survived by his in-laws Denise Meyers, Linda Toews, Margaret Andrews, Jim (Karen) Andrews, Isabelle (Art) Miller, Tom Andrews and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Robert was predeceased by his father Hans Meyers; mother Agnes Meyers (nee Gibson); sister Charlotte (Watson) Slomke; brothers George and Norman Meyers; sister-in-law Millie Souza-Leite; brother-in-law Milt Andrews.

Due to COVID 19, a small family service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Riverside Foundation for Health Care.

Dad, I miss you so much already.

It's been hard living so far away. I always lived in hope that another one of your hugs was just around the next corner. I guess it still is.

I remember running to you every day when you got home to get a hug as soon as you got out of your truck. Every time I played for church, I ran to you for a hug then too - I knew you were proud of me. I loved listening to your stories, playing cards with you, practising writing at the kitchen table on old envelopes, haying, and getting wood out of the bush with you for the next winter. I just wanted to be where you were. I didn't care what we were doing as long as it was there with you.

The things that you said and did shaped the kind of person I became, and I carry you with me wherever I go. Your favourite story to tell me was The Little Engine That Could. It was a golden book, but you could recite it by heart:

A little railroad engine was employed about a station yard for such work as it was built for, pulling a few cars on and off the switches. One morning it was waiting for the next call when a long train of freight-cars asked a large engine in the roundhouse to take it over the hill. "I can't; that is too much a pull for me", said the great engine built for hard work. Then the train asked another engine, and another, only to hear excuses and be refused. In desperation, the train asked the little switch engine to draw it up the grade and down on the other side. "I think I can", puffed the little locomotive, and put itself in front of the great heavy train. As it went on the little engine kept bravely puffing faster and faster, "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can."

As it neared the top of the grade, which had so discouraged the larger engines, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could, I thought I could."

So many times when I struggled, you reminded me with "I think I can, I think I can." I haven't forgotten. I am still trying. I wish you were still here to see what happens next, but I'll keep trying and keep carrying you with me until I can come to get my next hug.

I love you always
MK
