Kenneth A. “Ken” Meyer, 77, of Moorhead, MN, passed away Sunday, August 28, 2022, in Sanford Hospice House, Fargo, ND.


Ken was born October 5, 1944, in Hartington, NE, the son of Frank and Sarah (Lange) Meyer. He was raised in rural Hartington on a dairy farm with his three brothers and graduated from Holy Trinity High School in 1962. From 1965 until 1967, Ken served in the U.S. Army, stationed in Virginia. After his discharge, Ken, moved to South Sioux City, NE, and began working for Northern Propane Gas.

On October 25, 1969, he was united in marriage to Mary Beth Pinkelman in Wynot, NE, and to this union three children were born, Brenda, Peggy, and Steven. They lived in South Sioux City where Ken continued to work for Northern Propane Gas. In 1970, he was transferred to Mitchell, SD, where he was promoted to manager and to Casey, IL, in 1974. The family then settled in Moorhead in 1979, where he continued to serve as District Manager until 1985. Ken and Mary then owned and operated “Snack Break Vending”, an “on-your-honor” snack and vending business from 1985 until 1998. After selling the vending business, he went to work for Advanced Heating and AC and Johnstone Supply Company for another ten years before retiring. Ken also enjoyed traveling to Nebraska to help his daughter, Peggy, and her husband, Andy, farm. He would spend weeks in the spring helping with planting and return in the fall to drive truck during harvest.

He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church where he was active with the Monday morning cleaning group and funeral committee.

Ken enjoyed attending his kids’ and grandkids’ sporting events, farming, bowling and golf. He also enjoyed time with his “A-team” of high school buddies, including campouts.
