Birth: May 4, 1919
Death: Jul. 14, 1953
Detroit
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Officer Meyers was killed in a motorcycle accident while on duty in downtown Detroit.

Officers Meyers was survived by his wife and three children. Officer Meyers' wife was the first recipient of the Detroit 100 Club donation

The concept of the 100 Club was born in Detroit in 1952 following the fatal shooting of a young Detroit officer. A gentleman by the name of William M. Packer, who was the largest Pontiac Dealer in the nation and a friend of the Police Commissioner, wrote to 100 of his friends encouraging them to donate to a fund for the fallen officer. The response was 100%. Packer and the Commissioner met with the expectant widow, reviewed her finances and arranged to pay off the mortgage on their recently purchased home, pay all the bills, set up an education account for the yet unborn child and deposited $7,000 in the widow's checking account.
