November 27, 1942 - July 26, 2020
Allan Howard Meyer of Lakeville peacefully passed away on July 26, 2020 at the age of 77. He was preceded in death by his loving parents, Alfred and Emma Meyer, and siblings: Sharon Jensen, Bruce Meyer and infant, Sandra.
Al was born on November 27, 1942 in Albert Lea, Minnesota。 He grew up in the small town of Walters。 He graduated from Mankato State University where he met the love of this life, Candy。 He continued by earning his Masters Degree from Bemidji State University。 On July 30, 1966 Al married Candy。 They were happily married for 54 years。
After teaching in Harmony, he spent 30 years as an Industrial Technology teacher at Valley Middle School in Apple Valley. He retired at the age of 57 to enjoy fishing, family, his grandkids, and golf cart parades around the island at the cabin.
Al was always working, either on a project, mowing the lawn, splitting wood or teaching drivers’ education. Even on vacation at the cabin he had a never ending to-do list. Al spent his extra time playing golf, tennis, and woodworking. He enjoyed fishing trips and EDCO Company softball games.
He was a creature of habit. He always sat in the same pew at All Saints Church, ate the same meal at the same restaurants, and watched Almanac every Friday evening on TPT. There were only a few things that pulled him away from his routines and it usually involved his kids’ or grandkids’ sports games and events.
Al was proud of being an advocate for the underdog。 He coordinated and served many meals with Loaves and Fishes Too for over 30 years。 He also helped youth in his classes and the community in every way he could。
He is survived by his loving wife, Candy; son, Chad (Karen) Meyer; Daughters, Michelle (Michael) Redfearn; and Andrea (Kevin) Hickey. He was a loving and proud Bumpa to his 9 grandkids, Maximilian, Noah, Benedict Redfearn; Adeline, Corinne, Marielle Meyer; and Alden, Paige and Eric Hickey, who will miss him deeply.
