Jack Thomas Meyers
November 13, 1947 – September 9, 2022
Jack Thomas Meyers, age 74 of Grand Rapids, Michigan, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday, September 9, 2022. He was preceded in death by his parents Angeline and Steven Meyers Sr. and brothers James and Steven Meyers Jr.
He leaves behind his children Peter (Sarah) Meyers and Angel (Beau) Brummel; and sister, Sandra Hawke. Nothing brought him more joy than seeing his grandchildren Desirée Meyers, Beau Brummel Jr., Chase Hicks, Alex Brummel, Bailey Borst, Djoura Meyers, Harper Meyers, Ella Brummel, and Peter Meyers II; and great-grandchildren Parker Sumner, Penelope Sumner, Jonathan Brummel, Nash Brummel, Callum White, and Grady Bond Jr.; as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews. He was “Papa Jack” to all of the kids who crossed his path, and they loved him as much as he loved them, which had nothing to do with the endless supply of candy he kept for them.
Jack’s life was full, and it was exactly the life that he wanted to live. He lived loudly and filled every room he walked into with his presence. He loved to eat, drink, and “have a time,” and he had the scars and the stories to show for it. Jack was a walking cautionary tale, but the moral of his story isn’t “Be careful.” He would tell you to live loud. To do what you want to do. To make the most of your days and your nights. To spend your time with those who bring you the most joy, and to always be true to yourself.
