Michael Edward Meier
2/22/1949 - 8/12/2017
Until his dying day, Mike was an adventure seeker, that brought him to his final resting place, a beach in Monterey, California, on August 12, 2017. We joyously celebrate Michael Edward Meier. May his persistence and adventure live on in us all. A Muskegon, Michigan, native, Mike was a local Boy Scout and attended Muskegon Catholic Central High School. As a member of the Meier clan, one of his jobs was driving truck between the Meier dry-cleaning plants. He attended Muskegon Community College and Central Michigan University, where he majored in theatre and earned a bachelor's degree. As a sound technician, Mike went on the Road with many theatre productions including A Chorus Line, Evita, Cats, Best Little Whore House in Texas and phantom of the Opera. Mastery of sound production, pyrotechnics, and boom operation eventually led him to California to work with Lucas Film on Numerous Movies, and led him to become a proud member of IATSE Stagehands Union. His compilation of films can be found on IMDB. Mike lived for his children and his grandchild. He was happy with anticipation of the March birth of his second grandchild. Mike is survived by: his wife Marisa T. Meier; his children: Brendan Meier, Katherine (Tom) Watt; his siblings Barbara (Doug) Aardema, Christopher Meier, Jeffrey (Hillery) Meier, Brian (Janie) Meier, Eric (Susan) Meier, and Suzanne (Leo) Szost; grandchild, Hatcher Watt, along with numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Memorial services are to be held Saturday, September 9th in Muskegon, and September 30, 2017, in South San Francisco, California. Please contact the family for the address and time. Donations in Mike's name to an Alzheimer's Association of your choosing are greatly appreciated, as he had hoped to see a cure in his lifetime.
