Kenneth J. Meier, born June 12, 1931, peacefully departed this life on Friday, December 10, 2021. Kenneth (Kenny) the son of the late Hugo and Helen (Hellenbrand) Meier was born in Waunakee.
In his early childhood the Meier family moved from Waunakee to what was the family farm in Dane. It is here where Kenny shared his love of farming with his brothers James and Roman. He never missed time farming except an occasional vacation and when he was serving our country in the US Army.
Kenny stayed on the family farm until he was united in marriage to the late Marian J. Meier on March 9, 1985. They resided in the village of Dane. When Marian and Kenny married, she gave him an instant family that included Marian's children, Teresa (Frank) Schoenbeck, James (Joan) Lord, and Terri (Leroy) Wipperfurth. They were also blessed with nine grandchildren, Ian (Nichole), Lucas (Jennifer), Christina, Cassandra (Nick), Katie (Tyler), Jessica, Richard (Rachel), Pamella (Jeremy), Nicolas and eleven great grandchildren. Kenneth is also survived by his siblings James (Bev) Meier, Lois Spahn, and Roman (Sandra) Meier; in-laws Patricia (Ronald) Alt, Charles (Helen) Funk, Kathleen Lins, Cheryl (Ronald) Statz, and Doris Mernack; and many nieces and nephews.
Kenny was preceded in death by his wife, Marian; her infant son, Richard; his parents, Hugo and Helen (Hellenbrand) Meier; parents-in-law, Charles Campbell and Lena (Keller) Funk, brothers William Meier and David Meier; brothers-in-law, Dale Funk and Dave Spahn.
