Obituary

Bert passed away after declining health at his home in Dayton, Nevada on April 15th 2020 at the age of 91.

Born January 12, 1929 to Anton Meier and Marie (Glaser) Meier in Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany. His full birth name was Albert Bertram Otto Meier, it was shortened, and spelling changed when he was a young adult. Bert grew up in Munich with his parents and brother Fred but also spent time with relatives in Switzerland during WWII.

Bert was always a talented, artistic and adventurous man. He was befriended by members of the US Army Co. A of the 508th Military Police Service Battalion stationed in Munich during 1950, where he was employed as a painter. With some of these people he joined the “Arizona Boys”, a group that dressed up as Cowboys and Indians performing entertainment/music shows. …And he fell in love with the “Wild West”.

He attended art college in Munich winning a prize that gained him sponsorship to attend an art school in London, England for a few months. From there he traveled to Canada and the United States exploring and pursuing a sign painting career. He was also an accomplished musician that played a variety of instruments and played songs by ear.

He met his future wife A. Jean Davison in British Columbia. They later moved to Seattle, Washington where they married on March 5th 1955, became proud U.S. citizens, and started a family. The family moved to Los Gatos, California in 1961, and ran their own sign business. They were active members of the Lyons Club, an antique car club and owned a gift store for a short period. In 1970 they moved to Nevada, first to Carson City, then settling in Dayton three years later where they built their own home and continued the sign business.

Bert also worked at Lake Tahoe’s Ponderosa Ranch for many years. Loving all things western, this was a perfect fit for sign painting/building and many other artistic avenues. He was a reserve officer for the Carson City Sheriff’s Office. Over the years Bert and Jean were members of the Capitol Cutups Square Dancing Club in Carson City, the Mark Twain Volunteer Fire Department in Dayton and the Civil War Skirmish Assoc hosting some black powder shoots on their property.

He had a passion for building, restoring, creating and was normally working away in his shop. He had a streak of humor that would surprise you. He was stubborn and feisty, true to his German heritage. He loved food, especially sweets. He collected everything, large and small and loved scrounging around in the desert for treasures.

Predeceased by his beloved wife Jean and parents Anton and Marie. He is survived by his brother Fred of Munich, Germany and remaining family in Nevada including daughters Kathy (Dan) and Susan (Ted), grandchildren Kristyn (Naeem) and Ryan (Lindsay) as well as great-grandchildren Zoey and Meeka.

Dad, Papa we love and miss you!

To the family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
