Hundreds Turn Out To Honor Don Meyer

May 24, 2014, 6:19 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

Hundreds Turn Out To Honor Don Meyer
ABERDEEN, SD -

Hundreds of people filled the Barnett Center in Aberdeen today to honor a legendary basketball coach.

Former NSU men's basketball coach Don Meyer died Sunday after battling cancer for years. Family and friends held the first of two memorial services today in the coach's honor.

Speakers who shared memories of the coach and shared ways he impacted them included two former players. One of those players was Brett Newton who was playing for Meyer when he broke the NCAA Men's Basketball wins record.

But that didn't come up at today's service. In fact, when people talked about Meyer and his legacy, wins didn't come up at all.

"What made him so different? Let's start with his philosophy of living and dying as coach would so directly put it. 'Brett, you can't attach a U-Haul to a hearse.' But he didn't just say it as a punch line. He lived his life in this way,” former NSU basketball player Brett Newton said.

Speakers shared different stories and lessons learned from Meyer. But one common theme that continued to resurface was Meyer's faith, his commitment to Jesus Christ.

And again and again we heard that his life reflected that faith and he also encouraged others to act with servant hearts.

We'll have more from the memorial service right here on KELOLAND NEWS tonight at ten.
