Aug 31, 2014

Wells Cliff Meyer, age 69, passed away peacefully on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, at his home, surrounded by his family. A Memorial Mass was held Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014, at St. Casimir Catholic Church in Wells. The Rev. Thomas Niehaus officiated.

Cliff Meyer had 69 years of love and happiness. He was born March 26, 1945, the son of Herman and Lena (Marte) Meyer. Cliff graduated from Wells-Easton High School in 1963, and then enlisted in the United States Army, where he honorably served our country for two years. He was a member of St. Casimir Catholic Church in Wells, the American Legion and the Wells Color Guard.

He married Linda Lindholm and to this union they were blessed with two children, Scott and Jodi. The couple later divorced. On Sept. 2, 1972, Cliff was united in marriage to Julie Lundquist in Mt. Iron. They were blessed with three children, Becky, Clint and Clayton. Cliff enjoyed spending time with his family, Sunday night patio potlucks, riding his Harley, shooting pool, playing ping pong, playing cards, and his favorite pastime, enjoying every moment with his grandchildren. Cliff was a hard-working man, a trait he passed on to his children. He has had many friends throughout his life. His knowledge and love of 50s and 60s music, big smile, loyalty, honesty, huge heart, and sense of humor is evident to all who have known him. And now, he lives on in the lives that he has touched.

Clifford is survived by his wife of almost 42 years, Julie, of Wells; children and grandchildren, Scott (Malinda) Meyer, children Derek and RaeAnn, of Mankato; Jodi Rathai, children McKayla and Taylor, of Kiester, Becky (Loren) Prange, of Wells, Clint Meyer, daughter Kendra, of Albany, Clayton Meyer (significant other Sheila Niebuhr), daughters, Morgan and Madelyn, and Sydney, Olivia and Hayden Niebuhr, all of Minnesota Lake; two sisters, Kathryn “Tudy” Spencer, of Wells, Lois Grunzke, of Minnesota Lake; a special niece, Deb Mikolai, of Wells; In-laws, Dick (Betty) Lundquist, of Duluth; brother and sister-in-law, Dave (Jean) Lundquist, of Sherburn, Diane (Jim) Clifford, of Stanchfield; along with several nieces and nephews and their families.
