Billy John Meyer was born Feb. 13, 1957, in Windom, to Glen and Mary (Vandermoon) Meyer. He grew up in Jeffers, and was baptized, received first communion, and was confirmed at St. Augustine Catholic Church. He attended school at Storden-Jeffers and graduated high school with the class of 1975. Billy then farmed with his father and furthered his education in Waseca and Jackson.
Billy was united in marriage to Penny Kiihn on Aug. 24, 1985, at the Dovray Lutheran Church. The couple made their home in Marshall and had two daughters. Billy spent over 30 years working for Marshall Municipal Utilities as a lineman, retiring just two years ago.
Billy was an active member of Pheasants Forever and the Marshall Golf Club. He loved the outdoors, especially hunting. Billy showed his athleticism by running track and playing football, baseball, and golf. He enjoyed traveling, watching any Minnesota sports team, and was meticulous about his car and his clothing. Billy also was quite the handyman and liked to show his carpentry skills in the furniture he made.
Blessed be his memory.
