Myron Lee Meyer, 59, of Plainview, died Tuesday March 6, 2018 while vacationing in
Daytona Beach, FL.
Myron was born March 12, 1958 in Worthington, MN the son of Garrett and Joyce
(Buysman) Meyer. He attended Worthington Christian Grade School and graduated from
Southwest Christian High School in Edgerton, MN. He married his soul mate, the girl next
door, Clarissa Van Meekeren, August 14, 1982, at Christian Reformed Church in
Worthington. They both knew they would get married someday while on their second
date. Together they farmed near Reading, MN and moved to Kellogg in 1989 on their
7th anniversary to farm and raise their children.
He was a jack-of-all-trades on the farm; he owned his own hog farm, and worked for other
farmers driving grain truck, crop farming and almost anything else that needed to be done
around the farm. Myron worked most recently for Randy Hart.
Myron enjoyed hunting, volleyball, golfing, snowmobiling in Wyoming, and boating on the
Mississippi. He especially liked motorcycling to Sturgis, Daytona Beach for Bike Week,
and many other states. He traveled to Mexico, Puerto Rico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica,
and the Bahamas, just to name a few. Clarissa and he also were fortunate enough to
celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary in Alaska, a state he always wanted to visit. He
enjoyed collecting classic and modern muscle cars and would buy and sell anything with
an engine. Myron loved spending time with his family, providing them with many fond
memories. Most importantly, Myron had a quiet and reserved love for Christ, his Lord and
