Anthony Charles Meyer (Tony) of Mesa, AZ passed away suddenly on January 17, 2020 in his home at the age of 57. Tony was born and raised in Wisconsin, and after having lived in various locations around the US settled in Mesa, AZ in 1996 with his wife and family.
Tony was a long time Intel employee having retired in 2016 after a career as a Module Engineer in various groups at the Chandler ATTD campus. Prior to that he had been a Planar engineer at the Ocotillo campus. Tony was well liked and well respected at Intel.
Tony was also a 10 year Navy veteran achieving the rank of First Class Petty Officer for Fire Control systems and receiving multiple commendations and achievements. Tony was very proud of his service to the country!
Tony was well known for his love of motorcycling, riding his Harley to work no matter the weather. Cross-country trips were common for him; to Milwaukee to visit his family, Virginia for Navy reunions and recently a coast to coast trip from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon supporting the Antique Motorcycle Cannonball Event. He was extremely proud to have ridden over 100,000 miles each on two different motorcycles!
Tony’s love of family and friends was always evident from his willingness to help with any task; he was always generous with his time. His knowledge of computers, construction and mechanical repairs was always coupled with good advice and a willingness to listen regardless of the situation.
Tony, along with the rest of the family, was an animal lover; routinely taking in ‘at risk’ dogs who grew to love and care for him. And then there are the cats…lots of cats!
Tony was proceeded in death by his daughter Bridgette, and is survived by his wife Leslie and son Ryan. Viewing and services will be held on Friday January 24th, beginning at 2PM at Mountain View gardens, 7900 E Main St. Mesa AZ, 85207.
