Douglas Meyer Obituary
Douglas Clifford Meyer passed away and joined our Lord on July 9, 2014 at his home in Houston, Texas. He was 76 years old.
Doug was born in Lu Verne, Iowa on July 3, 1938 to Dr. Harold and Louida Meyer. He was an outstanding athlete who excelled in multiple sports, especially baseball and basketball which he played at Iowa State University.
Doug graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Business Administration in 1960. After graduation, he moved to Humboldt, Iowa with his wife Carolyn and had three children-Ted, Tamara and Tracy. Doug was involved in the Congregational Church as well as the local schools and community, serving in many volunteer roles. Doug was also a major supporter of Iowa State University athletics and was a regular attendee of football and basketball games throughout the 1960's and 1970s.
Also upon moving to Humboldt, Doug went to work for Everds Brothers, a highway contractor with whom he rose to the level of President. The company was involved in the construction of many major roadways across the country following the passage of the Highway Administration Act by President Eisenhower. Doug was very active in the construction industry, and served as President of the Asphalt Paving Association of Iowa in 1974 and President of the Associated General Contractors of Iowa in 1980.
During the mid-1980s Doug moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he began a career in Real Estate. He enjoyed representing purchasers of residential real estate, and served as a "Buyers Broker" until 2004 when he retired and moved to Houston, Texas.
Since his move to Houston, Doug's primary activity has been to enjoy his family-especially his grandchildren. He was as well-known as any parent at swim meets, volleyball tournaments, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse games; and looked forward to his August trips to New Hampshire. Doug truly loved his family. Doug also had a passion for world history, a hobby on which he spent many hours of study and enjoyment.
Doug was preceded in death by his parents, Dr. Harold and Louida Meyer, and his son-in-law Grant Foreman. Doug is survived by his children Ted, Tamara and Tracy; his brother and sister-in-law George and Joyce, his son-in-law Quang Le, daughter-in-law Jenny Meyer, nephew Dan Meyer and his wife Sharon, niece Anne Cameron and her husband Doug, and his grandchildren, Colette, Chelon, Riley, Whitney, Francie and Sarah.
The family would like to thank Dr. Shepherd, Dr. Klein, Dr. Nguyen and the tremendous medical community in Houston for the excellent care Doug received over the past ten years.
A Memorial Service will be held at the Cypress Fairbanks Funeral Home at 9926 Jones Road. Houston, Texas 77065 on Satruday August 09, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.
