Obituary for Duane A. Meyer

Duane Allen Meyer, surrounded by family, went to be with the Lord at 6:52 p.m. on Thursday, February 21st, 2019 after losing a long battle with cancer. Duane (husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, friend) wanted us all to know that he lived his life to the fullest and now he is enjoying all the wonders in heaven. He is celebrating “the good life” with friends and family up there just as he did down here, and he is basking in the glory of the Lord. Most importantly, he is watching over us, all of us, in anticipation of one day being together again. 

Duane Meyer was born on August 20, 1948 to Willard and Dorothy (Williams) Meyer. He grew up on a farm with his seven brothers and one sister and graduated from Grantsburg High School in 1966. On October 12, 1974, Duane was united in marriage to Beth Denise Eng. They had three children, Shannon, Devin and Damion. Duane believed that hard work was not an option in their home but was rather, a way of life. A way of life that he instilled in everything he did. For much of his professional life he was a heavy equipment operator and in his spare time he enjoyed building homes. Duane enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping, golfing, boating, gardening, maple syrup sapping, dancing and music. He was most passionate about his family - his wife, children and especially his grandchildren who were the light of his life. 

Duane is survived by his wife Beth, children Shannon (and Travis), Devin (and Trent), Damion (and Noelle); grandchildren Finley, Beckett, Landon, Easton, Crosby, Izzy, Roger, Gigi, Wyatt, Tarek, Vaughn; siblings Robert (Jeanne) Meyer, Gary (Collette) Meyer, Rodney (Patty) Meyer, Harley (Patty) Meyer, Barb Benson, Jim (Ginni) Meyer, David Meyer, Mike (Sheila) Meyer; father-in-law George Eng; mother-in-law Sandy Eng; brothers-in-law Max (Carole) Eng, Scott (Karen) Buchanan; stepbrothers-in-law Steve (Shelly) Norenberg, Barry (Colleen) Norenberg; stepsisters-in-law Roxane (Van) Brock, Teresa (Gregg) Eastin; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. 

Duane was preceded in death by his parents Willard and Dorothy (Williams) Meyer, mother-in-law Donna Eng, brother-in-law Allen Benson, brother-in-law William Eng, sister-in-law Donna Meyer, nephews Chris Coy and Steve Coy, and niece Jennifer Meyer. 

Special thanks to the tremendous team of doctors and nurses at the University of Minnesota – Fairview Hospital for the loving care that Duane received.
