Posted in Spring Valley Obituaries

Otto Roy Meyer died peacefully on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at St. Mary's Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.

Otto was born December 9, 1918, on the family farm in rural Wykoff, to Otto Meyer,Sr. and Amanda (Affeldt) Meyer. Otto was the 9th of 12 children, and attended Forestville Township school in Forestville Township, to the eighth grade. Otto then helped on the family farm working "the 80" with his parents and siblings. On September 25, 1940, Otto married Helen Marcia Rollie, and they lived and farmed on the Alma Rollie family farm until 1950. In 1950 they bought a farm 4 miles south of Wykoff and lived and farmed there for 20 years. In the early 1960's iron ore was discovered on the farmland and for several years was mined by the Hanna Mining Company. Otto retired from farming in 1970, and Otto and Helen then sold the farm and built a new house one mile south of Wykoff. He then helped Helen run her greenhouse business and drove school bus part time, until Otto started at the Forestville State Park as a maintainance worker, and stayed for the next 20 years. In 1988 Otto and Helen built their dream home, a log cabin in the woods, near Forestville State Park. They lived there together happily until Helen passed away in 1993. Otto continued to live in the log home until 2002, then bought a small home and moved to the town of Wykoff. In 2009, Otto moved to Spring Valley to assisted living in the Spring Valley Senior Living Center, and finally lived at the Care Center to the present time.

Otto was a dairy, livestock, and crop farmer for much of his life, and loved the farm life. Otto was always a very active and busy man, and had many hobbies and talents, and especially loved music. At the age of 16 he learned to play guitar and played for many barn dances and house parties. He also played a mouth organ (harmonica), banjo, concertina and mandolin, and continued to play music and sing to the end of his life, and entertained with his mouth organ at the Care Center on many occasions. Otto loved the outdoors and nature, and loved to fish, and spent many happy days trout fishing on the Root River, or fishing on the Mississippi from shore or on his pontoon. His sons took him on many fishing trips to Canada and other places. Otto also enjoyed going up north with his family for years to enjoy Lake Miltona in Alexandria every summer for a week long family gathering and to fish. During his farming years Otto had a team of ponies th .....
