Our family enjoyed the Schobermesse gatherings and were so glad Mr. Meyers & the brotherhood helped re-launch that festival. Our condolences to his family.

George Meyers will forever be remembered as a Lovable Luxembourger, with his kindness to one and all and his unending sense of humor. He was one of the giants in the Luxembourg-American community for more than 60 years. He spearheaded the Luxembourg Brotherhood of America for much of that time. Together with his loving sister Dolores he devoted his life to this endeavor. My wife Betty and I had the privilege of working with them for many years in the LBA, at Section 3 meetings, and at the annual Schobermesee each year. We enjoyed two fantastic trips to Luxembourg with them and the Luxembourg Consulate in Chicago in 2000 and 2007, with so many fond memories. For many years George and Dolores saw to it that Luxembourg had one of the most beautiful Christmas creches and Christmas trees at the annual Christmas Around the World Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. George and Dolores were founding members of the Luxembourg American Cultural Society and Center and were major financial contributors in those early beginning years. George, you have more than done your share, but you will be missed by so many. Bis geschwenn, Don Wampach Former Member of LBA, Section 3 A Founding Member of LACS

George and my former husband, now deceased, Chico Maki, who played for the Chicago Black Hawks, were great friends for many years. George always visited us in the summer in Ontario and could make the trip from Chicago to our home in seven hours--it takes ordinary mortals slightly longer. He drove a GTO and said that the letters stood for Go To Ontario. He was a wonderful man, full of fun and generosity. We will miss him very much.

The Notre Dame Class of '55 will forever be indebted to George for his wonderful stories that enlivened our Reunions. No matter how many times he told the Lufthansa story, it still had people rolling in the aisles. George's entire life was one of service and he touched the lives of thousands along the way. To say he will be missed is a huge understatement. Paul Fullmer Fellow Luxie Secretary ND Class of '55
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Kevin McCarthy left a message on December 9, 2016:
In 1973 upon completion of college I was very fortunate to go to work for George at Brummel Bros. Inc. George taught me the life lessons of working hard, enjoying that work, and enjoying the people you worked with. George was my favorite boss ever, my mentor and most importantly my friend. And as everyone who knew George realizes, those in heaven are about to be entertained!
