Ronald S. Meyer of Pewaukee, peacefully took his last breath in this world on Tuesday February 7, 2017 and is now line dancing with Jesus.  He was born on August 10, 1949, in Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Ron was proceeded in death by his mom Winifred (nee Mercer) and his dad Robert Meyer.

Ron will be sadly missed by his sister Janet (Alan) Schneidewent, his brothers Bob (Betty) Meyer and David Meyer. He was greatly loved by his nephews and nieces Jennifer (Nathen), Cynthia (Mizan), Robert (Sarah), Kenneth (Simone), Richard (Carrie), Nathan (Ann), Corey (Aimee), Sarah Price and his wonderful great nephews and nieces Nadine, Zachary, Clint, Nadia, Caleb, Naomi, Patrick, Owen, Brandon, Christopher, Sean, Marc, William and Michelle.

Ron is also survived by his aunt Jean Hinzey and many, many cousins.

Ron graduated from Pewaukee High in 1968. He joined the U.S. Army later that year and was sent to Vietnam in 1969. Ron spent 20 months in Vietnam serving in a Direct Support Unit. While there, he helped many Vietnamese families, made friends with the children and gave them gifts of the items Mom sent him. After returning home, Ron worked in several different jobs and started his own upholstery business. He continued in the Army Reserve and retired in 2009 as a Sargent First Class. Ron then worked for the Village of Menomonee Falls until his retirement. Ron also worked part time as the maintenance man for his church.

Ron loved to line dance and received several awards. During one of his long hospital stays, he taught the nurses a line dance. Ron was also an avid coin, stamp and Smurf collector.

Ron was an ardent volunteer. Much of his off time was spent helping at his church on Sundays, with projects and various activities. He was a member of the American Legion and The Veterans of Foreign Wars. Whenever a friend or family member needed help with a project, Ron always stepped in and put his mechanical experience to good use.

Besides his willingness to help, Ron will be fondly remembered as the jolly, fun-loving uncle. All his nephews and nieces loved having him visit, enjoyed the jokes he would tell and the pranks he played on them.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, February 18, 2017, from 9:00 AM to 10:45 AM, followed by a funeral service at 11:00 AM, the Reverend Jim Ahlquist presiding, luncheon at 12:00 PM, all at Krause Funeral Home, 21600 West Capitol Drive, Brookfield, Wisconsin. Committal in Forest Hill Cemetery at 2:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, Ron requested memorials go to the American Cancer Society, Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

The family would like to thank Unity Lutheran Church family, Brookfield; Legacy Assisted Living Facility, Pewaukee; Allay Hospice, Brookfield; Milwaukee VA Center and Krause Funeral Homes; for the wonderful support and care they gave to Ron and us.
