On November 9, 2018, Donald Eugene Meier, loving husband, father, grandfather and brother passed away at the age of 63. Don will forever be cherished and remembered by his wife and best friend Sandra, his children Ashley and Michael, his grandchildren Hannah and Kylee, his sister Barbee and his niece Brittany, and his numerous extended family members. Don will also be remembered by his many friends; his dedication and drive was inspirational and will forever be remembered by those that knew him.

Don was born in Los Angeles, California in 1955, son of Lois Jane Thompkins and Eugene Alvin Meier. He grew up in San Diego and graduated from San Diego State University. Over the years Don enjoyed living in many areas of the country, most recently residing in Woodinville, Washington. Throughout this journey he was fortunate to meet many wonderful people that impacted his life in many memorable ways. Home improvement projects around the house and yard, and tinkering with his cars always brought Don much joy and satisfaction. His influence spread not only to his family and friends, but to those he worked with throughout his career and those he mentored when his children were young. The encouragement he offered and stories he would tell not only stemmed from his work and accomplished projects, but also the enjoyment and love he had of traveling.

Don was a loving, caring and respectful individual. He was the individual you looked to for guidance and support. He was passionate about taking care of those around him and always made time for his family. Being able to bring joy and happiness to the family was a dream he made come true every day.  The time and love he had with them will forever be remembered.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on December 15th at Palisades Presbyterian Church, 6301 Birchwood St, San Diego, CA
