Charles Oostmeyer  Dies at Age 89 A long-time former employee of The Chronicle, Charles B. Oostmeyer 89, 0f 1840 Terrace St., died Friday afternoon in Hackley Hospital after a long illness.  Mr. Oostmeyer joined The Chronicle’s circulation department in 1920 and was a collector for 17 years.  He is remembered by many as “the man behind the counter” to whom Chronicle carriers paid their bills after the paper instituted the “little merchant” collecting method, with the carriers collecting their own accounts. Mr. Oostmeyer continued in this capacity even after transferring to the advertising department.  Mr. Oostmeyer was born in the Netherlands January 31, 1875.  He came to Muskegon in 1887, and was educated in the public schools.  In 1904, he married the former Miss Dela Rosema in Ferrysburg.  She died in 1959.  On October 10, 1954, they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.  Mr. Oostmeyer was a member of the Immanuel Christian Reformed Church and had served on its Consistory.  Surviving are three sons, Robert Oostmeyer and Clarence Oostmeyer, both of Muskegon, and John Oostmeyer, of Encino, California; three daughters, Mrs. Angeline Prow, Mrs. Irwin Poppe and Mrs. Martin Davey, all of Muskegon; 26 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren.
