Obituary for Claude W. Meyers

Claude W. Meyers, age 77, of Plymouth, passed away peacefully early Saturday morning (August 5, 2017) at the Sharon S. Richardson Hospice Facility with his loving family by his side.

He was born in Chilton, WI on November 12, 1939, son of the late Claude J. and Lorena (Hoerth) Meyers.
Claude attended Stockbridge area grade schools and graduated from Hilbert High School in 1957.
He began working at Brillion Iron Works before becoming a truck driver for various businesses.

On October 5, 1957, he married his high school sweetheart, Dianne Dohr, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Hilbert. The couple resided in Stockbridge following their marriage and in 1972 moved to the Plymouth area, where they continued to enjoy their nearly 60 years of a loving marriage.

Once in Plymouth, Claude was able to begin his true passion and started farming.

In his earlier years, he loved to go fishing and deer hunting with his buddies. He also loved going to Oneida, playing BINGO, and driving around the property on his Gator to check things out. Claude was also an avid walker, walking four miles a day on Willow Road for many years.

Most of all, Claude loved spending time with his loving family, especially his grandchildren, who will remember his warm smile, big heart, and his great sense of humor.

Survivors include: Wife: Dianne of Plymouth; Six children: Debbie (Kevin) Schaetzer of Sheboygan, John (Lori) Meyers of Sheboygan, Patty (John) Martin of Sheboygan, Betty (Jon) Stangel of Sheboygan Falls, Joe Meyers (special friend: Laurie Edwards) of Plymouth, and Robert (Ruth) Meyers of New Holstein; Fifteen grandchildren; Eighteen great-grandchildren; Two brothers: Donnie Meyers of Hilbert and Jim (Sandy) Meyers of Potter, WI; Sister: Sandy (Clarence) Krueger of Hilbert; Brother-in-law: Alvin (Kim) Dohr of Hilbert; and Four sisters-in-law: Barbara Halbach, Mary Brantmeier, Sue Dohr, and Bernice Meyers all of Appleton.
He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Claude was preceded in death by: His parents: Claude and Lorena Meyers; parents-in-law: Alvin and Malitta Dohr; Brother: Jerry Meyers; Three sisters-in-law: Sandie Meyers, Donna Wolfinger, and Judy (Arnie) Olp; and Two brothers-in-law: Leander Halbach and Tom Brantmeier.
