Obituary

Joseph John Meyer, 73, died unexpectedly from a stroke on November 5, 2018. Joseph was born in Rock Island, Illinois, on September 4, 1945. He had lived in Des Moines for 69 years until residing at Granger Nursing Home in March.

A proud Dowling Catholic graduate, he was an enthusiastic fan of Dowling football. Joseph was a loyal Iowa Hawkeye fan and was proud of his copy of Hayden Fry’s book with a personally signed thank you to Joseph and his mother, Marie, for their many years as loyal fans.

Joseph was preceded in death by his parents, Myron and Marie Meyer. He is survived by his sisters, Mary Meyer (Tom Dullard), and Helen Mooney (Richard); and nephew, Christopher Mooney.

The family thanks the staff at Granger Nursing Home for their wonderful care of Joseph.

Funeral services will be held at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at Basilica of St. John. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. Private interment will be at Glendale Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa.
