Mr. Leslie George Meyer Obituary

Leslie [Les] George Meyer passed peacefully in his sleep surrounded by his loved ones. Les was in his 96th year of life when he was called home to the Lord on Tuesday, December 14th at 6:02 a.m. Born May 12th, 1926 to George and Elsie Meyer. He received Christian baptism at St. John Lutheran where he was a proud lifelong member. Following his high school graduation from Franklin Central, Les enlisted in the United States Navy where he served in the South Pacific during WWII. After two years of service and a WWII win, he was honorably discharged and returned to the family farm. He went on to attend Butler University at which time he met his wife Dorothy [ Jo Ann} Skirvin. Dressed in his pinstripe suit he wooed her and they were married on June 4th, 1949. Together, Les and Jo Ann built a home and a family of their own. He farmed the family grounds and was a business owner with his lifelong friend, Eddie. Eventually, he became the sole proprietor of Meyer Landscaping. He thoroughly enjoyed nature and spent time doing conservation efforts. He was a founding member of the Five Points Conservation Club, member of the Eastside Sertoma Club, and the American Legion Post 0220. He was very proud of his efforts, success, and ability to make a comfortable life for his family. Les was beat to heaven by his wife Jo Ann Meyer, and grandson Daniel Godme. He is survived by his 3 children, Virginia Godme, Scott Meyer, and Matthew Meyer. He is also survived by his grandsons Robert Godme(Brandi), and Ryan Meyer(Mandi). In addition, he had 4 great-grandchildren whom he was proud to love and raise, Maci Godme(Ryan), Braiden Moran, Chloee Moran, and Magnolia Meyer whom we are sure he met in passing shortly after his death. Finally, he is survived by his 5th generation, his great-great-grandson Abel Moriarty who shares his passion for the outdoors and westerns. His family is deeply saddened by the empty shoes he left behind as none of them know anyone with even the slightest ability to fill them. 96 years of a life spent well-loved. He is a local legend that will not soon be forgotten. Truly the man of the century. and he wanted everyone to know that he still held a valid drivers license. Services for Les are Monday, December 20 at 11:00 AM at St. John Lutheran Church, with visitation at the church on Sunday, December 19 from 5-7:00 PM and December 20 from 10:00 AM until time of service.
