George W. Meyer, age 70, of Appleton, passed away due to an unexpected and sudden illness on Thursday, November 10, 2022, with his son and daughter-in-law by his side. He was born July 16, 1952, to William Meyer and Betty (Hooker) Young, and was raised by his mother Betty and step-father Ivan Young. George grew up in Wild Rose where he attended Wild Rose High. Shortly after high school George went on to work at The Wild Rose creamery. When the creamery closed, he went on to become a fabricator at PSI Performance. When he moved to the Appleton area to be closer to his son, he worked as an overnight stocker, until he was no longer able to, due to issues with his health.
One of George’s biggest accomplishments was being a father. George was blessed with one son, Joseph. He was passionate about spending time with his son, fishing, coaching him in little league, watching his son play sports, going to Rolling Stones concerts, and most of all watching football.
George was an avid Vikings fan and looked forward to watching them play during the football season. He enjoyed trash talking with friends and family and rooting against the Packers. George loved to read, listen to music, and enjoy a cold one with his friends. He enjoyed spending time outdoors where he loved to grill and often take a nap in the sun. Above all, George cherished spending time with his granddaughters, who were the joy of his life.
George is survived by his son, Joseph (Amanda), and his granddaughters Emily and Elianna, as well as his Godson and nephew Justin Meyer and his family. He is further survived by other family and many friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Doreen, and his best friend Joseph Kowalczyk (whom his son was named after).
To honor George’s memory, we are holding a celebration of life on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at Anduzzi's Sports Club in Kimberly (800 S Washington St) from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM. We invite family and friends of George and his family to attend and share in remembering his wonderful life. SKOL
