Obituary of Tivon Meir
Tivon Meir, born October 15th, 1935, passed on to Glory on August 11, 2021, to enter into the presence of his Heavenly Father.
He married Norma Jean Turner on August 15, 1953, and had five children.
He was predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Norma J. (Turner) Ryerson; his father, Robert E. Ryerson; his mother, Carole W. (Crane) Olney; his sister, Roberta (Ryerson) Nugent/Harrison; and his grandsons, Richard Ryerson Jr. and Louie Snyder.
He is survived by his children, Melody (Donald) Scheffler, Darlene (Rick) Collins, Faith (Keith) Snyder, Rich (Suzanne) Ryerson, and Laura (Edward) Moore. He had 17 grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
Tivon was a very unique man. He served the Lord for many years in pastoral positions, as a Christian radio host, all while raising his children. Many years into his ministry, he felt a yearning to share with the Jewish community that the God of the Old Testament was the same God of the New Testament. He became a Rebbe and studied Jewish laws and customs so he could share this message and devoted the remainder of his life in this ministry. Many lives were impacted by his testimony of his faith in God.
A graveside service and burial took place at the Rural Valley Cemetery, Cuddebackville, NY 12719
