Hastings resident Alan S. Meyer, DVM, passed away peacefully on Thursday, July 15, at age 77.
Alan was born on April 20, 1944. He grew up in the Bronx and attended The Bronx High School of Science before going on to attend The City University of New York and then The College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. He worked as a veterinarian for more than 40 years. At his own practice, the Animal Clinic of Mount Vernon, he loved taking care of animals of all shapes and sizes. He and his loving wife, Anne, settled in Hastings with their two children, Matthew and Joshua, in the 1970s and raised the boys along with standard poodles, cats, birds, and fish. Temple Beth Shalom became an important part of their lives.
Alan was predeceased by his parents, Marion and Morris Meyer. He is survived by his wife of 55 years; his sons and their wives, Lori and Tammy; his grandchildren Audrey, Hazel, Sophie, and Benjamin; and his brothers Mark Meyer and Jeff Meyer and their families.
