Steven Russell Meyer
As generous as he was witty, Steven Russell Meyer, 68, died peacefully in his sleep at home on July 8, 2014. He was born July 2, 1946 in Indianapolis, Indiana to the late Chester and Betty Meyer.
Russell was a 1965 graduate of Arlington High School in Indianapolis. He went on to enlist in the U.S. Air Force, where he served honorably as a Sergeant from 1964 to 1968. He earned a Good Conduct Medal for exemplary service in Vietnam.
Russell's 30-year career in sales with Universal Instruments took him around the world on business. His travels abroad extended to almost every continent. Stateside, he spent time in 49 of 50 states. Only Idaho missed the chance to host this savvy traveler. Russell earned one of Universal's most distinguished awards in 1991, North American Salesman of the Year.
