RTM’s Emotional Tributes to Bill Meyer

Meyer, the ever present, fist pumping town cheerleader during the announcements section of the legislative body, died Saturday night after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 85 and had served 18 years on the RTM—just one of his myriad volunteer activities.

First Selectman Jim Marpe, who welled up recalling Meyer’s positive impact as softball coach to Marpe’s now grown daughter Samantha, said that Westport had lost a town treasure.

“He brought a new meaning to civic duty,” said Marpe.  “He was all in when he supported something ...He left his high energy impact on everything.”
