Print Obituary
William C. Meyer, 76, was the owner and operator of Meyer Appliance, Belleville, IL. He was born March 5, 1943, in Belleville IL, and died Monday June 3, 2019, at Memorial Hospital, Belleville, IL.

Bill will always be remembered as a loving father, husband, grandfather, and exceptional friend to everyone, always putting others before himself. Bill was a man of few words, but the words he spoke were from his heart. He was an honest and trustworthy man true to his every word in his business and personal life.

Bill had been asked twice in his life to try out for the Olympic shooting team, with all expenses paid. Being the type of man Bill was he refused to take time away from his family, friends and business, always thinking of others before himself. He was an animal lover and has adopted several cats and dogs over the years.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William C. Sr. and Mildred, nee Becker, Meyer; and a daughter, Michelle Mary Meyer, in infancy.

Surviving are the love of his life, his wife of 54 years, Marjorie M., nee Braeutigam, Meyer, whom he married on May 22, 1965;
a son, Mark W. Meyer;
a grandson, Brandon Meyer;
a sister, Margaret Meyer;
and a brother, Paul Meyer.

Bill was also considered to be a grandpa by Brandon Meyer’s siblings, Adrienne, Alexei, Alison, and Nathan Carr.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Belleville Area Humane Society.  Bill would do anything to help animals in need.  Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.

My condolences to Bill and his family. I have a wedding day picture from 1932 on my wall of my parents and his parents. Bill was a soft spoken man who knew his business and we always called for appliance problems.

I knew Bill from his visits to a downtown Belleville sporting goods store where I worked. He usually came in towards the end of the day, and I was always glad to see him. His quiet and calm demeanor was admirable. I was lucky to know him. God bless you and keep you Bill.

I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible tells us that turning to God in prayer at times like this draws us close to him. (James 4:8) God is aware of the pain you are feeling and will provide the comfort and support that you need to get through this difficult time. (Psalms 46:1) May God's promise for the future (John 5: 28 & 29) give you a wonderful hope in seeing Bill again. For more encouragement and comfort, please visit jw.org.
