Dr. Arthur Nathaniel Meyer, 87, of Kingston, passed away on Sunday, May 28, 2023, in Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, from complications related to a recent surgery.


Born in Wilkes-Barre, he was the son of the late Rose and Max Meyer, and was graduated from Exeter High School. He completed his undergraduate studies at Wilkes College, and earned his medical degree from Thomas Jefferson Medical School. Dr. Meyer completed his medical training in Philadelphia, and returned to the Wyoming Valley in 1967, where he became the first hematologist/oncologist in town. Dr. Meyer maintained an active private practice for decades, and he later joined Geisinger, where he was the inaugural director of the Cancer Center. In his capacity as a compassionate and brilliant practitioner, he touched the lives of many thousands of people. Dr. Meyer was active in the community, a life member of Temple Israel, a member of the Jewish Community Center, and a supporter of the Philharmonic. He was also an avid sports fan, with an encyclopedic knowledge of all professional sports. Most especially, he was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Always encouraging and generous to a fault, his family was his life.


Dr. Meyer is survived by his wife, Barbara Parris Meyer; son Dr. Mark L. Meyer (Elizabeth) and grandchildren, Max and Oliver; son Dr. David Meyer (Andrea) and grandchildren, Jacob, Abigail, and Samuel; daughter, Rachel Meyer; brother Martin J. Meyer, and many nieces and nephews.
