David Alfred Meyer Sr., age 84, a lifelong resident of Michigan City, Indiana passed away on Saturday, June 8, 2024 surrounded by loved ones.


Dave was born on July 2, 1939 in Michigan City, Indiana to Alfred and Thelma (Neulieb) Meyer who preceded him in death.


Dave was preceded in death by his loving wife of 61 years, Joe Ann (Frye) Meyer whom he met in New Buffalo, Michigan working at Clean Towel Service.


Dave is survived by his three children: David A. (Beth) Meyer Jr. of Virginia, Deborah (Chad) Wallace of Georgia, and Deanna (Russell) Thomas of Michigan City; his seven grandchildren he was always so proud of: David A. (Kayla) Meyer III of Wisconsin, Matthew (Shelby) Meyer of Krakow, Poland, Adam (Audrey) Rouse of Washington, Evan Koss of Union Mills, Emily Koss of LaPorte, Marguerite (Craig) Welsh of Union Mills, and Russell Thomas II of Michigan City.

Dave has always lived in Michigan City where he raised his family. He graduated from Elston High School - Class of 1957.


Dave was a small business owner in Michigan City. He had 2 laundromats and a laundry equipment distribution business. He loved to fish whether on his bass boat or on Lake Michigan for Coho and Perch. Dave loved to take his family out on Lake Michigan for fishing, skiing or just for a cruise to a random port and even through the locks in Chicago. He also had a love of classic cars and enjoyed going to car shows.


Dave was proud that he attended Purdue University West Lafayette and was proud that his three children attended, as well as two grandchildren.


Dave loved the fact that he and his wife had visited all 50 states, and the majority of those trips were with his family in their Winnebago. He even drove that Winnebago to the top of Pikes Peak.
