Obituary of Jerome Meyer
Passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family June 10, 2018, at the age of 89 years. Jerry was the loving husband of 49 years to Margaret Meyer. Loving father of Karen Meyer of Toronto, Jennifer Kedmenecz (Michael) of Waterloo and Sarah Bota (Matthew) of London. Adored Poppa of Ryan, Sydney and Bridget. His quiet presence will be missed by his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his granddaughter Avery (2007), his brothers Howard, Dennis (Denny), Lorne (Brownie), and his parents Alfred and Mary Meyer.
Jerry was President and Owner of Lou’s Bearings and Transmission. He started his career with his brothers Howard and Denny at Meyer Industrial in Waterloo. Jerry was a man of few words and chose instead to lead by example. He was kind, generous and a man of his word. Jerry enjoyed the simple things in life: reading, single malt scotch, smoking his pipe and his Model T Ford. Much time was also spent with family and friends at the lake. Jerry was a life long resident of Waterloo, a proud member of the Serra Club of Kitchener-Waterloo and devoted parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
