Robert Arthur Meier, Jr., 74, of Leland, NC, passed away suddenly on March 21, 2023.
Bob was born in High Point, NC. After graduating high school, he went on to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point and joined the Army after graduation. After being honorably discharged, he went on to earn his Juris Doctor from Catholic Law in Washington, DC and practiced for 38 years before retiring and moving from Maryland to North Carolina with his wife.
He was devoted to his wife, Marleen, for 47 wonderful years before she tragically passed in December 2020. They had 4 children.
Bob is survived by his children Thomas (Korinne), Jennifer (Logan), and Emily; his brother John (Kelly); sister Anne (Pembroke); brothers-in-law Hank and Paul (Felicia); and grandchildren Ashley, Anna-Korina, Adora-Rose, Grayson, Arabella, and Leslie. He is preceded in death by his wife Marleen; daughter Tara; grandson James; sister Janie; sister-in-law Barbara; parents Robert Sr. and Jane; and in-laws Milton and Laura.
Bob was an incredibly intelligent man with a quick wit and dry sense of humor. He enjoyed telling stories, spending time with his family, fishing, working on his model trains, reading, and doing crossword puzzles.
There will be a private service held in Leland.
In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
