Leroy G. Meyer, age 86 of Clintonville, passed away Saturday, June 2, 2018 at Greentree Health & Rehabilitation Center, Clintonville.
Leroy “Chub” Gordon Meyer was born February 5, 1932 in Clintonville, son to the late Gordon & Alvina (Rusch) Meyer. He attended Clintonville schools and graduated from high school in 1951. Leroy enlisted in the United States Navy the following December, and served as a Boatswain’s Mate aboard the U.S.S. Laws during the Korean conflict. Following his service and honorable discharge in 1955, Leroy started working at FWD/Seagrave, Clintonville on the assembly line. He was united in marriage to Virginia Zoglman on July 25, 1959 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Shawano. Together, the couple remained in Clintonville and raised four children. Leroy retired from the FWD in 1995 after 39 years of employment. He enjoyed vegetable gardening; most notably, pickles; and also loved fishing, trapping, and deer hunting with family. He also enjoyed trying his luck at the casino and his yearly vacations to Las Vegas. Leroy loved playing Sheephead with friends and family, and looked forward to their card-playing parties in his younger years. Leroy will be remembered for his joke-telling abilities, his friendly demeanor, and his knack for making you smile.
