Merton L. Meeker, Jr. November 13, 1929 - July 25, 2017

Merton L. Meeker, Jr. was born in San Francisco, California. A graduate of the University of Oregon, Mert was a proud member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity.

He had a successful career in the insurance industry, earning him numerous awards and accolades from his peers. As Vice-President of Marketing for Oregon Mutual Insurance in McMinnville, he met and married his wife, Susan, in 1983. After retiring in 1992, Mert and Susan moved to Sisters, where they relished the Central Oregon lifestyle.

Together they traveled, played golf, enjoyed camping and socializing with their vast number of friends. He was a member of the Sisters Jazz Festival Board of Directors and a board member for the Crossroads Homeowners Association.

Preceded in death by his son, Gregory S. Meeker, Mert is survived by his wife, Susan; sons Merton B. Meeker (Carolyn) and Michael F. Meeker (Sandra); stepchildren Kelly Lynch Jeffers, Tracy Hayden (Dave) and Jason Carl; and seven wonderful grandchildren.

A private interment will be held. Memorial gifts may be made in Mert's honor to Oregon Junior Golf Association (OJGA), 2840 Hazelnut Dr., Woodburn, OR 97071, or by calling 503-981-4653. All gifts are tax-deductible.
