Robert J. Moyer, 92, of Bellevue, died Sunday, February 12, 2017 at his home.

He was born May 13, 1924 in Findlay to Roger J. and Lura (Jacobs) Moyer.  He graduated from Arcadia High School in 1942 and served our country in the US Army during WWII.

Mr. Moyer was a craftsman. Whether working with wood or metal, his talents were unmatched.  Over the years, he crafted many things; most notable were his cannons. He enjoyed replicating scale models of cannons, and they are still in production today.  He also crafted many lighthouses and enjoyed farming. 

By trade, Bob was a welder.  He had worked at New Departure, Klein Steel, and then retired from Ford. He was the owner and operator of Moyer Brass Foundry in Tiffin.  Because of his great attention to detail, he also was the sexton for Bishop Seybert Cemetery for many years.

On February 19, 1949 he married Geraldine "Gerry" (Souder). They were members of Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Flat Rock.  Mr. Moyer served as a trustee there. 

He is survived by his children: James R. "Jim" (Kimberly) Moyer of Fremont; Janet L. (Hal) Michaels of Clyde; Keith L. (Gail) Moyer of Tiffin; grandchildren: Wade Moyer; Kimberly (Brian) Boisvert; Laurie (Brian) Good; Jay (Ashley) Michaels; Scott Michaels; Benjamin (Diane) Moyer; Chrissy (Dennis) Simmons; Daniel (Gretchen) Moyer; Sam (Shawna) Moyer; step-grandchildren: Daniel (Susan) Hottinger; Brandy Kubitz; 17 great-grandchildren; 5 step-great-grandchildren; his sister, Joan Thomas of Mansfield, Illinois; and sister-in-law, Grace Moyer of Findlay.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Gerry on July 27, 2003; his daughter, Linda Jean Moyer on March 10, 1970; and his siblings: Phyllis (Evan) Anderson; John Moyer; Shirley Bailey; and Harold Moyer.
