Friends Say Meyer At Peace

Friends Say Meyer At Peace
ABERDEEN, SD -

Family surrounds former Northern State University coach Don Meyer as he's in his Aberdeen home under hospice care.

"As we've watched coach throughout this journey, we obviously knew it was going to come to this at some point. The family and coach, they all are very at peace," family friend Brenda Dreyer said.

Meyer battled cancer as he recovered from a serious car crash during his final years of coaching. The battle continued after he retired from coaching and assumed other roles including teaching at NSU.

Trophy cases at Northern display Meyer’s success as a coach. Friends are talking about more than that.

"I think the thing about Don Meyer that has impacted me the most personally is his faith," family friend Mike Salem said, "just how much Jesus Christ means to him."

Salem says that didn't change in the early days of the cancer diagnosis when Meyer was still coaching, and it hasn't now.

"I've not seen his faith waiver and I've never seen bitterness out of Don Meyer. I've just seen a grateful person and how he treats others through this has been remarkable," Salem said.

"Coach and his family, they're always thinking of others first. And even as you've seen coach with his struggles and how his health has declined, the first thing he always asks is ‘how are things with you,’ ‘how is your family,’" Dreyer said.

Dreyer says she learned from Meyer while working with him at Northern. Lesson learning, she says, continues today.
Meyer entered hospice care earlier this week after a three-day hospital stay in Aberdeen.
