Fist Pumps and Humor Mark Bill Meyer Memorial Service

Westport today bid farewell to its fist-pumping cheerleader Bill Meyer with a poignant, humor-filled memorial service that included fist pump salutes from speakers and a musical sendoff of “I’ll Be Seeing You” and “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

Meyer, a tireless community volunteer, died June 28 after a more than two-year battle with cancer. He was 85. (See WestportNow June 28, 2014)

The pews of Christ & Holy Trinity Church were overflowing for the slightly more than one hour service that attracted family and friends from all of Meyer’s causes, including the Representative Town Meeting, Y’s Men, Sunrise Rotary Club, Little League baseball, as well as his beloved Saugatuck Congregational Church.

Former U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays said in his 34 years of public service, he “never knew anyone like Bill Meyer.”
