Celebration of Life to be held Sunday, June 1 at 2 p.m. at Lipscomb's Allen Arena



I started this blog in August 2011. The 5th one I wrote about was Don Meyer (, but what I wrote is nothing compared to what this person contributed to this world……

Family, former players, coaches, friends, alumni and fans will gather to celebrate the life of Coach Don Meyer on Sunday, June 1 at 2 p.m. at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. More specifically, and appropriately, they will gather on Don Meyer Court inside the arena.

Former Lipscomb players, coaches, student assistant coaches, staff members and trainers who were part of Coach Meyer’s Bison Basketball family are invited to bring their families to a dinner after the memorial service. It will be held in McQuiddy Gym where Coach Meyer amassed most of his 665 wins as Lipscomb’s head coach. If you are part of that group, please RSVP to along with the number from your family that will be able to attend. Please forward this email to others that are part of this group.

Another memorial service will be held on another Don Meyer Court in Aberdeen, South Dakota this Saturday, May 24 at 3 p.m. inside the Joseph H. Barnett Center on the campus of Northern State University. Coach Meyer coached the Northern State Wolves for the final 11 seasons of his coaching career.

A tribute website has been set up at where you can view videos, share stories, post photos and learn more about the life and legacy of Coach Meyer. You can also post messages on Coach Meyer’s Facebook page at and to his Twitter page @CoachDonMeyer
