Conrad Paul Meir, 72, passed away Thursday, Jan. 4, 2018, at his home in West Branch.

He was born Dec. 21, 1945, in Flint to Roy and Margaret (Plasha) Meir. Conrad proudly served his country as a veteran in the military police with the Michigan National Guard, and retired from General Motors. He was raised and retired in West Branch. Connie, as he was known to all, had a zest for life and enjoyed fine cars, snowmobiles, boating and Conway Twitty. He was known for his culinary skills and “have grill, will travel.” He was the captain of the ship for the Meir family, bringing all together for the yearly family reunion at the Meir farm that people traveled across the country to attend.

Connie was the lone brother among six strong-willed sisters, Barbara (John) Morlock of Collinsville, Ill., Margaret (Ruben) Arceo of Flint, Lois (Don) DeLong of Placentia, Calif., Julie Meir of West Branch, Mary Jane (John) Schnautz of Rose City and Rose Meir of Tulsa, Okla. Family extending from nieces and nephews to the most distant cousins and friends were counted as family.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Margaret “Ann” Meir.

Connie was always there to help and celebrate life. We know that it will be hard to fill his shoes. He made a difference in our lives and touched us all. We love you, Connie.
