Amos was born March 10, 1930, in Linton, ND, the son of Mike and Margaret (Bosch) Meier. He graduated from Linton High School in 1948. He was an outstanding basketball player for the Linton Lions who went to State in 1948 achieving fourth place.

After graduation, he joined the United States Navy. Following his first discharge returned to Linton and went to work for V and C Motors. Amos then married his one and only, Etta Nelson, before he was called back into active duty during the Korean War. Following his second discharge, he returned to Linton and purchased the North Side Grocery Store from Albert Goehring. Robert then sold the grocery store and took the position of Linton policeman. Later he was hired for a position at the local Ford dealership where he worked for 46 years. His wife, Etta, passed away in April of 1993. Amos was one of eight brothers who served in the armed forces for our country. Because all of the Meier boys had served in WWII at the same time, Amos was chosen in 1991 to participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony for the historical display on WWII at the North Dakota Heritage Center. He was also one of 8 to dedicate the North Dakota Veteran's Cemetery in Mandan, ND. The Meier brothers were mentioned in the North Dakota Bicentennial display that toured the state.

Amos was a member of the Knights of Columbus, and Lifetime member of the Linton American Legion Post 54.
Thank you to my dear friend, Alvin Mosset.

Amos leaves behind his one son, Bob, Jr. Mandan, ND; grandson Darin and his wife Tammie; and two great-grandsons, Logan and Landon all of Mandan, ND; 2 sisters-in-law, Delores "Malsom" Meier, Lois "Rowerdink" Meier; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Etta; parents; 7 brothers, Leo (Veronica "Kuss"), Mike, Peter (Helen "Kraft"), Evie (Odeal "Wohl"), Clemens (killed in WWII), Matt, and Ben; and sister, Lorna (Garris) Rowerdink.

Etta: "I love the sailor and he loves me too"

"Honest to God!"

In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to the Linton American Legion Post 54.
