Into you hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.

Jeffry Alan Meyer

1948-2021

Jeffry Alan Meyer, beloved husband and father, passed from this life to the next on Sunday, February 28, 2021 after a brief but difficult battle with cancer. He passed peacefully as his wife and daughter were praying the prayers for the dying at his bedside. He was 73 years old. Jeff is survived by his wife, the Rev. Dr. Markene Meyer, his sons, Cameron Alan Meyer and Maxwell Forrest Meyer and his daughter, Madeline Grace Meyer.

As Jeff would tell it, he was a simple guy. He found joy in his family and his work. He was a steady and loving father, whether cheering at Cameron’s basketball games, talking cars with Max, or serving on mission trips with Maddie. He especially enjoyed traveling with his family to the Colorado Rockies. His ashes will be scattered at an overlook which the family fondly knows as the “Sound of Music” point.

Jeff was a devoted husband to his wife, Markene, for 35 years. They shared a love for the outdoors, renovating houses and entertaining friends at their home. Jeff loved the ocean and reggae music. He and Markene traveled together to numerous tropical destinations. Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds describes Jeff’s easygoing perspective on life: “Don’t worry about a thing, cause every little thing’s gonna be alright.”

Jeff was an experienced relocation specialist, serving for over 40 years in the industry. He worked for Bekins Van Lines, Johnson Moving and Storage, Nelson Westerberg, and most recently, Beltmann Relocation Group. Not one to call attention to himself, he consistently ranked as a top 20 relocation salesperson in North America. Every customer has a story, and Jeff enjoyed hearing that story and helping them get a great move. Throughout his illness, even on the day he was admitted to hospice, Jeff continued to serve his customers.

Jeff was born on February 2, 1948 in Seymour, Indiana, the son of Leanor Brunhilda Isaksen and Walter John Charles Meyer, both whom preceded him in death. He was a graduate of Seymour High School and Indiana State University where he studied marketing. He is survived by three brothers and a sister, Kenneth Eugene Meyer of Jacksonville, FL, Thomas Martin Meyer of Walla Walla, WA, Dennis Jay Meyer of Indianapolis, IN and Janice Lea Meyer of Seymour, IN.

Jeff was an active supporter and a founding Board Member of Trinity Lakeside, the contemplative community which his wife founded in 2020. It was his wish that in lieu of flowers, memorial gifts be made to Trinity Lakeside. Giving details may be found on the Give page of this website.
