Edward Neil Meyer
An incredible life overflowing with love, laughter and devoted friendships ended peacefully on June 27, 2022, while surrounded by his family. Eddie was born on Nov 2, 1948 on Maui to Sophie and Arthur Meyer. He was preceded in death by his three older siblings, Beverly, Harold and Pat. Ed grew up in a loving family who taught a strong work ethic. At the age of 9 he got his first job shining shoes at the Hukilau Hotel and during his high school years he worked summers in Maui's pineapple fields. In the early 60s, he started a Rock & Roll band with his friends and played school dances around the island of Maui. Ed earned a full scholarship to Chaminade University, where he graduated with a degree in accounting. As a young man he worked for Foodland, Servco, and Hawaii Transport, while also serving as a member of the Hawaii National Guard. Ed's distinguished career culminated with more than 30 years at McCabe, Hamilton and Renny, where he retired as Vice President and CFO. Ed met and fell deeply in love with Lynnette Allison Wood in his mid-40s, and they were married in a beautiful ceremony at Keawala'i Congregational Church on Maui in 1997 accompanied by 65 of their closest friends and family.
Ed will forever be remembered as a beloved husband, father, grandfather and cherished friend to so many. He lived and loved with a passion that was incredibly generous and contagious. To know him was to have a lifelong, caring friend who never shied away from a little mischief. His passions included a deep love for animals, country music, traveling, and planning the next big adventure. Ed is survived by his adoring wife, Lynnette; three children, Jen, Andy and Leah; and four precious grandchildren, Nai'a, Allie, Flynn and Davey. In his final days, he was comforted by his faithful and constant companion, Lola, the family "angel" dog.
For those wishing to honor Ed's memory, the family suggests donations to the Hawaiian Humane Society.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 in the Thurston Memorial Chapel at Punahou School at 4:00 p.m.
