Passed: November 30, 2020


Dick Meyer was born in 1939 and passed away surrounded by family and friends Monday, November 30, 2020, at home after watching the Seahawks win on Monday Night Football.

Dick is survived by his loving wife, Marlene, his son Allen Meyer, his wife Tami, their children McKenzie and Madi; daughter-in-law Tamora Meyer and her children, Hunter, Jazzy, Rachel and Drew; daughter Kellie Coleman; daughter Keri Kinley, her husband Scott, and their children Serenity, Sasha and Victoria; and his dog Cap.  He is preceded in death by his son, Brent.

Dick spent his career in the auto industry, owning several car dealerships.  He lived in Bellingham for many years and was the owner of Dewey Griffin Subaru.

Dick had a larger than life personality and was a well-respected leader and mentor.

People were important to Dick and he cared about everybody.  His kind soul impacted everyone who knew him.  His generosity changed the lives of many people and helped the community.  He especially enjoyed supporting the youth and the elderly.

He had a passion for selling cars, duck hunting, the Seahawks, the Mariners, traveling, old western movies and red beer.

Dick will be greatly missed by his family, his entire Dewey Griffin Subaru family, all his “Sweet Peas”, as well as his many friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Whatcom County.

  1. A great friend and a great man. Went to many auctions together. Never too busy to Linda hand. I miss you my friend

  2. Ron Clark says:

    I dearly loved the man. Always made you feel like family.

  3. My grandfather will be remembered fondly for his generous acts of service and charity. He was a kind and gentle person that always looked out for others. His involvement in the community inspires me and he has been an amazing role model for my entire life. The world lost a great man.

    Love you grandpa.

  4. He was our North Star. He always led by example and guided each of us toward lives filled with success and joy. He taught us that true success could only be obtained by hard work and service to others. He provided opportunities for all of us to learn and grow. He always stressed the importance of not only being excellent employees, but striving to be excellent human beings. He showed us that true joy not only came from fulfilling work, but from family, trusted friends and a good dog.

    He was loved and admired by our entire Dewey Griffin family, and while we are all trying to deal with the grief, we can take comfort that even though he is not with us his light will always continue to shine through each of us and warm our hearts forever.

    With great love and gratitude,
    Keith and Lori Bockwoldt

  5. Dick was my brother in law, I met him in 1978, My name is John MacDonald and I am Marlene’s brother.

    Dick was a positive and generous person to all. I purchased season tickets for the Seahawks from Dick for years. He always gave me the inside scoop on the Seahawks and Mariners. Dick always had a smile for everyone even when his health conditions made a turn for the worse. He always had the positive attitude and was a wonderful guy to talk to.

    Dick may be gone, but his spirit lives on, I am so glad he was a man I could call a dear friend. It was good to know that Dick was able to watch his beloved Hawks on his last day, i know he was happy.

    You are gone but certainly not forgotten Dick.
