James Wayne Meyer

James "Jim" W. Meyer, age 61 of Rich Fountain, passed away Tuesday, September 18, 2012, at his niece's residence in Taos.

I was from St.Louis, visiting my cousin Alvin Luecke, when I first met Jim. He was a kind person with a ready smile,quiet,friendly, and with a personality you never forget. Years later living in Jefferson City I was able to see him again where I worked.He'd not changed.Moving back to St.Louis, I'd not kept up with him.His friend Bob informed of Jim's illness. He and his family are continued in my prayers. He is now in the arms of God. Linda Luecke Cheragotti
