Robert "Bob" Meconis, age 70, passed away Monday, May 21, 2018, with his familyby his side. He was preceded in death by his parents Leo and Betty Meconis, his brother Barry Meconis, and sister-in-law Nancy Meconis. Bob was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and friend to many. He will forever be loved and missed by his wife of 49 years Betty Meconis, daughter Shannon (Todd) Myers, son Todd Meconis (Sarah), grandkids Olivia and Rory Myers, and Claire Meconis, as well as cousins, nieces, and nephews. Drafted into the United States Army in 1968, he served in Vietnam and was a lifetime member of the Wayland VFW. No one respected the flag more than he did. Bob continued to work at Spartan Warehouse for 37 years. After retiring at 55 years old, he then worked at Yankee Springs Golf Course for 14 years where he loved to cut grass. He loved watching Wayland Athletics, Byron Center Hockey, and Michigan Football (when they won). He also enjoyed many years of camping, Michigan beaches, walking the Mackinaw Bridge and spending winters in Florida. His grandkids were his pride and joy, he was their biggest supporter in everything they did.
