Mr. Dwight Meyer had awe-inspiring traits of character

By Tim L. Baker

There are many people we come in contact with over our life travels but very few leave a lasting impression that spans over the years. Dwight Lee Meyer, is one of those people. I met Mr. Meyer for the first time in January of 1984. At that time I was in high school but his character traits of honesty, integrity, sternness, and love for his family and country made me just stand in awe. I still do to this day.

My favorite saying of his was always tell the truth and you'll never have to back up. I use that to this day.

I will end my tribute letter with this: Mr. Dwight and Mrs. Jean's marriage and life earns my deepest respect with the way they have raised their children and the respect that their children, friends, and family show them to this day. What a legacy.

My hope would be that my life would be patterned after the happiness, joy, and integrity the Meyers are so known for. I will miss Mr. Dwight and so will all of the community. We need more people like PeePaw and MeMaw Meyer.

May God Bless the family.

Tim L. Baker
