Earl Charles Meyer Sr

Our Gracious Father has called Earl Charles Meyer Sr. home on this day, August 1, 2023, at his home in Cascade (Chinatown). Earl was born February 25, 1937, at his parents’ home on Hwy V, Kewaskum, WI. He is the son of Arthur and Hildegard (Backhaus) Meyer. Earl married Ada Mae Heaslip (Baeckmann) on October 27, 1956. They had seven children together. After they divorced, Earl found his soul mate, Joan Breitenfield, spending over 30 years together. Earl and Joan traveled the world and visited all but five states in the U.S. 

At a young age, Earl worked as a farmer. He went on to work at Regal Ware, Mill Tool & Die, and Giddings & Lewis, where he retired. Earl was definitely a jack-of-all trades. After retirement, Earl had a small engine shop and did carpentry and plumbing work for Vista. He lived his life following God’s will and truly had a kind and generous heart.  Earl was always there with a helping hand for anyone in need. He was devoted to his family, friends, and to God. Anyone who knew him knows his memory will last with us forever, until we join him in Heaven. 

Earl is survived by his children, Cheryl (Dean) Larson, Christine Meyer, Anita Day, Michael (Linda) Meyer, Kenneth (Kelly) Meyer, Dawn (Steve Rothe) Meyer, Barb Domanek, and Dale, Dave, and Jimmy Breitenfield.
