Arthur “Art” Raymond Meyer passed away Christmas Eve at 93 years old. Art was surrounded by his family when he went to be with the Lord.
Art was born in Chicago, IL on July 26th, 1930 to Otto and Margaret Meyer. Art started his lifelong passion for baking at a young age when he would help his mother bake because she was allergic to flour. Art’s baking prowess led him to becoming a gifted cake decorator.
After high school, Art joined the US Air Force and was stationed at the Lackland, TX base. Art baked and cooked for the troops during the Korean war.
In 1952, he married his high school sweetheart, Betty Lundy. They lived in San Antonio, TX while Art served his country. Art and Betty then moved to Wheaton, IL where they had five children.
Art and Betty loved vacations in Minnesota, so in 1967 they moved with their five children to Maple Plain, MN. Art took a job with Super Value where he worked his way up in the bakery department. Art oversaw several stores throughout the Midwest. From the 1970’s and into the 90’s, he owned and operated three restaurants. In the late 90’s, Art went back to baking and worked 10 years at Lunds & Byerlys grocery store. His love of cars and working with people led him to his next job at Morrie’s Imports. Art’s final place of employment was back in the restaurant business working in the kitchen at Davanni’s restaurant. Here he helped prep meals, specifically salads. He was so quick with his chopping skills that he was nicknamed “El Chopo.” Art finally retired at the age of 88 to become a full-time caregiver to his beloved wife, Betty.
Art loved nothing more than spending time with his family. He loved to fish and get away to northern Minnesota. Art was a jokester and if he liked you, he would tease you.
Art is survived by son David Meyer (Joslyn), daughter Sheryl Ducharme (John), daughter Janet Robertz (Scott), daughter Sandy McKown (Mark), and son Mark Meyer (Jodi). He is also survived by 13 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Betty, son-in-law Kraig McKown, sister Betty Ann Meyer, sister Nancy Lundy and brother Dick Meyer.
A funeral service will be held at Maple Plain Community Church in Maple Plain, MN on Saturday, January 6. Visitation will begin at 10:00 AM with a service to follow at 11:00 AM.
