Ed Meyersick

<p>Edward Meyersick</p>

Ed Meyersick died November 1, 2011, at his home in Pendleton after an extended illness. He was born in Baker City, Oregon to Raymond and Marjorie (Brown) Meyersick. He moved to Pendleton with his family in 1941 when his father purchased the Eastern Oregon Motor Company. 

Ed graduated from Pendleton High School and Oregon State University, where he was a business major. He played on the golf team and was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. In 1960, he married Sharon Kay Gross and they spent two years in the Army, mostly in Texas. They returned to Pendleton, where Ed worked with his father as a salesman at the Ford agency. He also sold real estate and became proprietor of the Rainbow Café. He retired in 1999, which gave him more time to spend at his favorite family vacation cabin at Tollgate with his friend, Betty Adair. There will now be a larger supply of wild mushrooms and huckleberries in his secret spots.

Ed was a Happy Canyon director, enjoyed playing golf, was a good card player and organized his family and friends on many hunting trips.

Ed is survived by his sister, Joyce Gustafson; sons Ronald and Randy and their wives Joyce and Petrece; grandchildren Taylor, Ryan, Ashley and Caroline; sister-in-law Wanda Gross Williams; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife.

At his request, no services are planned. Those who wish may contribute in Ed’s name to The Umatilla County Historical Society or Shriner’s Hospital, c/o Pendleton Pioneer Chapel, Folsom-Bishop, 131 SE Byers Ave., Pendleton, OR  97801.
