Allan Eugene Meyer was born on April 12, 1935 in Rural Abercrombie to Albert and Jessie (Astrup) Meyer. He attended school in Rural LaMars Township and graduated from Fairmount High school in 1954, where he participated in basketball and football. He attended NDSSS, playing on the Wildcat football team for two years. Allan served in Army for two years and was honorably discharged in 1961. He married Sharon Hubrig on April 16, 1961. They made their home in Fairmount where they raised their five children.
He worked for Farmers Union Oil, which later became Cenex, managing several stations in the North Dakota area. He worked for Air Freight Delivery before moving to Sun City, AZ in 1996, where he worked for Sun City West Foundation for several years.
In life, Allan was an avid sports enthusiast; he played and refereed both basketball and football. He bowled on league and loved to hunt deer and fowl. Collecting pens and pencils with advertising on them was a hobby of his; his collection of the many past and present businesses in the Fairmount area was very special to him.
Allan is survived by his wife, Sharon; children, Crystal Boutiette (Al Peters) Merrill, WI, Kelly (Teresa) Meyer, Mooreton, ND, Kathy (Brad) Larson, Grafton, ND, Dean (Mary) Meyer, Rochester, MN, and Mark Meyer, Dixon, WY; grandchildren, Jermey Boutiette, Ashley Anderson, Alexandra Woller, Christopher Larson, Bethany Larson, Andrew Larson, Connor Meyer, and Dalton Meyer; great-grandchildren, Eli, Hazel, Amelia Anderson, and Dember Woller; nine brothers and sisters, Gerald, Charles, Robert, Ronald, Richard, Wayne, Phylis, David and Becki; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Jessie Meyer; grandson, Marty Boutiette; sister-in-law, Norma Meyer; and brother-in-law, Gerald McMahon.
