Life Story / Obituary


Benard Allen Meyer was born on December 28, 1943 in Volga, South Dakota. He was a farm boy through and through and it never left him. After serving in the army, he went to Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa where he met his best friend and love of his life, Judy. Ben and Judy were married for 51 years and were true partners in everything.

Teaching was one of his many gifts. Ben received a PHD in Education. He taught at Jenison Public High School, Community College, and Kuyper College. He also taught internationally in Inner Mongolia, Tibet, and Cambodia. He touched the lives of everyone he met.

He was a great story teller, helped everyone, never met a stranger, baled hay, and built fences until the day he left. Most importantly, he loved and served the Lord with all his heart.

Ben was dedicated to his family. He was happily married to his girlfriend, Judy. He loved his three girls and their husbands: Erin and Julio Viveros, Lindsey and Justin Davies, and Paige and Jason Addink. He was a superhero, best friend, and role model to his grandkids: Ella, Levi, Noah, Luke, Sophie, and Kate Addink, Max, Zaida, and Greta Viveros, and Isaac Davies.

We are given peace knowing he is with his God and Savior whom he loved and served with all of his heart.

Friends and family are invited to participate in a memorial procession which will be held at Maplewood Cemetery in Lamont on Monday, May 11. The staging will begin at Lamont CRC at 10:00 am. Families will be asked to remain in their cars and follow the processional route past the gravesite.
