In Memory

Dr. Hermann Meyer

January 5, 2012

Dr. Hermann Meyer, 84, of Fort Collins, died Jan. 1 at Poudre Valley Memorial Hospital in Fort Collins.

Born March 29, 1927, in Frauenfeld, Thurgau, Switzerland, Dr. Meyer completed his doctoral work in veterinary anatomy at the University of Zürich in 1952. He came to his adopted country from Switzerland in 1952 and completed a second Ph.D. in veterinary anatomy at Cornell University in 1957.

In America he found his life's work – preparing students at Colorado State University, the University of Missouri, and the Ohio State University for the practice of veterinary medicine.

A devoted family man and proud Rotarian, Dr. Meyer was an active member of the Fort Collins community for more than half a century.

He is survived by his wife Marti, his three children, and their families: Corina and Masa Kojima; Steffen and Sheryl Meyer and daughter Annelise; Re Meyer Evitt and son Nik.

A celebration of his life will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 7, at First Presbyterian Church of Fort Collins, 531 South College Ave., followed by a reception after the service.
