Leo Martin Meyer
May 5, 1930 – April 19, 2022

The family of Leo Meyer sadly announces his passing on Tuesday, April 19, 2022, at his residence at Quill Plains Centennial Lodge, in Watson, Saskatchewan. He was 91 years of age. Leo was the third child of Gerhard and Anna (née Letang) Meyer born at their home on the SE 15-39-21 W2nd on May 5, 1930. He grew up on the family farm with his five brothers and two sisters. He attended Schuler School, which was located near the family farm, until grade seven. In his teens, Leo enjoyed working for his cousins, the Brinkmans, on their farm. Work was difficult to find here and in the late 1950’s, Leo went to work for MacMillan Bloedel in the pulp mills in Port Alberni, British Columbia for several winters. Leo, along with Henry, started plowing snow for the Schuler Snowplow Club in the winter of 1966-67, and continued that for many years. For Leo, farming was a joy, and he farmed all his life. He was mechanically inclined and could fix almost anything. Several trips to British Columbia were made over the years to visit his brothers and sisters and their families. Leo had a love of animals, especially his dog Sparky, and a favorite cow whose name was Stupid. He was also known for his outstanding memory. After his siblings left, Leo continued to live with his parents until they retired to Humboldt, SK in 1964. At that time, Henry, Adela and their family moved into the original farmhouse where they lived together with Leo in the same home. In the early 1970’s, he purchased a mobile home and continued to live on the farm. In 1984, Leo moved to Humboldt. His next move was in January of 2019 to The Elizabeth in Humboldt, and on April 15, 2021, he moved to the Quill Plains Centennial Lodge, in Watson, SK, where he lived until his passing. Leo will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his brother and sister-in-law, Henry (Adela) Meyer; sister, Marion Leger; sister-in-law, Evlyn Meyer; brother-in-law, Don Saretsky, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Gerhard and Anna (née Letang) Meyer; and by his brothers and sisters-in-law: Lawrence (Joyce) Meyer, Arnold (Bernice) Meyer, Alphonse (Joan) Meyer, Daniel Meyer, and sister, Anne Saretsky. The Funeral Mass was offered for Leo at 11:00 a.m., on Friday, April 29, 2022, at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church in Humboldt, SK, by Fr. John Ezeoruonye. Others taking part were: Carter Knittig, cross bearer; Dylan Knittig and Cole Meyer, scripture readers; Laurie Meyer, intentions; Braden Knittig, and Mark Meyer, gift bearers; Melvin Meyer, eulogist, and Nolan and Diane Meyer, memorial table attendants.
