James (Jim, aka Moon) A. Meyer, 86, Neenah, ran through the Green Bay Packer’s tunnel into the arms of the Lord on January 8, 2022. He was born on October 17, 1935, in Cecil, WI to the late Albert and Lydia (Bohm) Meyer. He met the love of his life, Lorice (Romitti) in Neenah where they were both working. After a motorcycle ride for a milkshake, a blind date, and a stolen kiss in the backseat, they realized they were meant to be and married on May 10, 1958.
Jim ended his eleven years of service in April 1965 with the Army National Guard as a Staff Seargent. He attended the technical college through Kimberly Clark Corporation and became a Senior Millwright with Kimberly-Clark Corporation, retiring after 42 years. Jim could build and fix just about anything and enjoyed life to the fullest. Jim enjoyed golfing, bowling, hunting, fishing, and watching his beloved Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers. Lorice and he were active in the Elks Club, the Manhatten Dance Club, and the Appleton Yacht Club. They enjoyed their time boating on Lake Winnebago, Lake Michigan, the Mississippi River, and enjoyed their many years of sunshine in Naples, FL. Most recently, they’ve enjoyed their travels in a 2005 Thunderbird, 50-year anniversary limited edition car.
He is survived by his wife, Lorice, and children Rocky (Jane) Meyer and their children Ashley and Nick, and Tina (Brad) Johnson and their children Emily and Benjamin. His family and grandchildren meant the world to him and will miss him greatly.
In addition to his parents, Albert and Lydia, he was preceded in death by his sisters Gail (Evelyn) Jacobe; Shirley Jacobe and brother, David Meyer.
