Carl C. Meyers, 74, of Fort Myers, Fla., and formerly of Zelienople, passed away on Thursday, March 18, 2021, at Gulf Coast Medical Center in Fort Myers.
He was the son of the late James C. and Margaret (Peg) Meyers of Zelienople.
He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Nancy; his brother, Denny; his sister, Sue (Chris) Arnold; his nieces, Emily, Meaghan and Haley; his nephews, Christopher and Travis; and a grand-nephew, Arthur.
Carl spent his youth scooping ice cream at his parent’s Isaly Dairy Store on Main Street in Zelienople, and water skiing on Edinboro Lake. He excelled playing basketball at both Zelienople High School, and Grove City College, for which he was awarded a full scholarship.
Carl graduated from Zelienople High School and from Grove City College with a degree in engineering.
He began his professional life as a design engineer at Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn, Mich. His work with Ford led to continued success with executive positions in the auto industry in the United States, as well as Europe and South America.
Carl’s career in the auto industry covered three decades, until he and Nancy moved to Marco Island, Fla., where he began a career with the Naples Yacht Brokerage, and earned his captain’s license.
Carl and Nancy spent many happy hours sailing through retirement on the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Most recently, they had returned to the golf course, and Carl was delighted while cruising Florida roads on his classic Swift Chopper Motorcycle.
Carl and Nancy had the great and good fortune of their many wonderful friends in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida. Our family wishes many thanks to friends for their love and support.
