Born March 21, 1940 in Frostproof, FL to Leo and Lora Mae Meyer, he moved to Melbourne with his family in 1952. In 1956, he met, fell in love and married his high school sweetheart, Jill Linda Dull, while still a sophomore attending Melbourne High School. He eventually graduated from Mel High in 1958, finding time to overachieve in football for the Bulldogs while also a student, friend to all, and family man.
An original “Radiator” who first started working at Radiation, Inc.’s Melbourne Airport campus in 1959, he was a draftsman and designer for 40 years with what eventually became Harris Corporation before retiring in 2005 to pursue fishing and spending more time with his family.

He is also survived by his brothers Morris (Anita) and Carl (Prill); sisters Lavonne (Fred), Diana (Bob), and Martha (Dean); and more than two-dozen nephews and nieces.
And he leaves behind his beloved dog, sidekick and daily walking partner, Holly.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his sisters Betty and Evelyn; and his son, “big” Sloan.
