Robert W. Meyer, age 70, of Red Bank, passed away at home on Saturday, April 16, 2022, following a long courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was an avid drummer throughout his high school years and played in numerous local popular bands. He went on to serve in the Vietnam war as a Navy photographer.
Robert started out as an Account Executive in the advertising industry in the early 70’s in New York City. His successful track record inspired him to independently start his own business in interior design and graphic production services, which then led him into launching a thriving architectural and institutional signage business with major developers throughout New Jersey. He was well sought out and respected by his business associates leaving behind a legacy.
“Bob” as his family and friends called him, was known for his great sense of humor, kindness and generosity. He was married for 20 years to Martha Prieto Meyer and they enjoyed traveling and visiting family and friends. He was the happiest hosting holiday gatherings every year and sharing his home with relatives and friends. He was truly loved by all.
Robert was predeceased by his parents Richard and Blanche Meyer and his daughter Aubrey. He is survived by his beloved wife Martha; his daughter Katherine Meyer-Hall (Brandon) of Neptune City; his stepson Fernando Salazar (Catherine) of Aberdeen; his granddaughter Liliana Eden Salazar; his two brothers, Richard Meyer (Judith) of Florida; David Meyer (Gayle) of Branchburg and his three nephews Joshua, Jonathan and Gregory.
Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 23rd, from 2-5pm (with words of remembrance at 4:15pm), at Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad Street, Red Bank.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations in memory of Robert Meyer to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
