Noah Josef Meyer was killed in a car accident on Oct. 4, 2017. He was 11 years old.
Raised primarily by his grandparents in Palmer, Alaska, he was silly, bright, determined, adventurous and loving. A smart and enthusiastic student, he attended Wasilla Lake Christian School, where he was often known to brighten teachers' days with his charming smile. Many upperclassmen will miss his daily hugs and high fives.
Noah was a source of fun and energy and loved sports. He played basketball for years and recently took up soccer. As goalkeeper, he helped his junior high soccer team rank 3rd at regions just days before his passing. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and riding, but his favorite sport by far was baseball. Coached by his grandfather (better known as "Colonel"), many regarded Noah as one of the best players in Palmer Little League Majors division, playing several years for the Palmer All-Star team. His dream was to play for the Chicago Cubs.
He was very involved in his church, helping teach younger classes and serving as an honorary security team member. Noah had the biggest heart, the most contagious laugh and the purest love for Jesus. Although his absence has left an emptiness and an ache in so many hearts, we are comforted by the knowledge that he is in Heaven with his Creator, and one day we will see him and his dimpled smile again.
Noah is survived by immediate family members, including grandparents/adoptive parents, Mark and Shelly Meyer, "Nana and Colonel"; sister, Mikayla Meyer; mother, Heather Meyer; aunt, Megan Meyer; aunt, Sam Meyer; uncle and aunt, Taylor and Kelsey Roth; great-grandmother, Dorothy Ziemba, "Nanny"; father, Brian Skornia; grandparents, Sid and Becky Skornia, "Nana Becky and Papa"; aunt, Melissa Gay; and by many other family and friends.
A celebration of life service is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 13, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., at Wasilla Church on the Rock. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given in his honor to Wasilla Lake Christian School or Palmer Little League.
Though his life was too short, he was a blessing to so many. He was loved deeply and he will be greatly missed.
