Grant C. Meyers

April 5, 1963 - November 14, 2021

Grant C. Meyers



My beloved son, Grant Colin Meyers left his earthly life & now he walks with the angels. His enlarged heart quit beating on Sunday afternoon, November 14, 2021. Grant was a one of a kind, if you met him you never forgot him. He was likable, easy-going, happy, funny & his laugh was unforgettable.

Grant entered my life on April 5, 1963 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Belvidere, IL.  He was the best baby ever born, he ate, slept & never cried. What a joy!! Grant’s father was the late Frank P. Meyers & I am his mother, Kay L. Meyers. Grant was raised on our farm & followed Frank everywhere, he rode with his dad on tractors, combines, & grain trucks. When school age, he rode the bus to Washington School, Jr. High & Belvidere High School. Grant was highly intelligent & graduated 4th highest in his class at Belvidere High in 1981. Grant went on to the University of IL & graduated in 1985. He then went to Palmer Chiropractic School, graduated in 1988. He practiced Chiropractic in Michigan for a few years, but he missed family & the farm, so came back to Belvidere. He was the happiest working with his dad back on the farm.

In 1999, Grant started working at the Chrysler Assembly Plant, he quickly became team leader & was well respected by everyone on his team. In 2005, he studied & passed his realtor exams. He was a good salesman, & enjoyed showing & selling homes to his prospective customers. Grant was still working at Chrysler Fiat & Century 21 at the time of his death. Grant had many friends, who shared his love of the 4th of July & fireworks, hunting on our farm, boating on Lake Geneva, snowmobiling in Wisconsin, scuba diving & The Boone County Fair.

Grant is survived by his mother; brother, Ross O. Meyers; niece, Carmen Meyers & nephew, Sean Meyers.

So sorry for your sudden loss. I’ve known Grant forever from riding the school bus to selling houses together. I am so happy that I attended the funeral to learn even more what a fun, full of life, kind of guy that he was. It was a beautiful service.

So sorry to know Grant passed away. I was just with him recently at the Belvidere Halloween Parade when we held an open house gathering at the Boone County Realtors office. He was always fun and loved to joke around. Grant had a volunteer heart and he was always willing to help over the years with our realtor functions. He will be dearly missed.

You will be very missed around the office. You were the life of our gatherings and always had us laughing. It doesn’t seem real since you were just sitting at your desk or at mine 🙂 so recently. RIP Grant, you will not be forgotten!

I am in shock and full of sadness today finding out Grant is no longer with us. He was my team leader at Chrysler and a co-worker and a dear friend for over 9 years. We talked before work, during work and after work. He always was willing to talk and/or help in any way. He was very well known throughout the plant and in the community. His smile and his laugh was infectious. I am going to miss him very much and the Chrysler plant will never be the same without him.

Gene & Dyan Toepfer 2021-11-20T06:50:24

I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve worked with and around Grant at Chrysler since the Neon days. We have talked many times in the parking lot before work, after work and occasionally through text. He even let me load up my truck with firewood from the farm that he cut down & split. I see why he loved the farm so much!! Grant was always uplifting and guaranteed to make you laugh. He will be missed.
