Obituary of Jack Brian Meisner

Jack Brian Meisner left this Earth on February 3, 2022 to join his dad, passing peacefully in his favorite recliner at home. We all called him Brian because Dad’s nickname was Jack, but he began going by Jack in honor of Dad after his death in 1995. Brian was outgoing and popular, and participated in many activities, both school and extracurricular including sports, theater, and Boy Scouts. He was stage manager for several plays at Central High School in St. Joseph, Missouri, and was also a member of the National Honor Society. After graduating from Central in 1968, Brian attended the University of Missouri in Columbia, and majored in Prehistorical Archaeology. Brian’s interests and passions included anything to do with history, fishing and hunting. His favorite fishing spot was in Montana, and hunting was in Nebraska. He was also a very good cook and baker, including making pies from scratch. His culinary skills improved greatly from the days when he babysat his younger sister, when he would make his specialty for her – bologna/American cheese/Miracle Whip/sweet pickle rollups secured with toothpicks. Brian was preceded in death by his father, Henry Joseph (Jack) Meisner. He is survived by his mother, Mildred (Midge) Meisner of Sun Lakes, Arizona, sister Christine (Bill) Denzer of Mesa, Arizona, brother Scott (Bill) Meisner of Eugene, Oregon, niece and husband Kelsey (Drew) Donohue of Edwardsburg, Michigan, second nieces Jade and Autumn Donohue, nephew Christopher Denzer of Phoenix, Arizona, and his daily companion, Ollie the cat. Brian loved his family, and he will be missed, but his pain is gone. May he rest in eternal peace.
