Obituary for Donald J. Mero

Donald Joseph Mero passed away on December 17, 2018, with his family by his side, at his home in McMinnville, Oregon. He was 80 years old. He was born in Kalispell, Montana, to parents Russell “Bub” and Amber Mero.
He graduated from Kalispell High School in 1956 and after working at the family logging site for a little over a year attended Western Montana College in Dillon, Montana where he served in the National Guard and received his Bachelors Degree. After college he started his career as a high school teacher and coach, where he met and married the love of his life, Evelyn Monroe. He spent almost 20 years managing farmer cooperatives in Montana and continued doing so in Oregon, where he moved his family to in 1976, when they moved to McMinnville.
He and Evelyn particularly loved camping trips with their kids and grandchildren, gardening, playing card games, traveling around the country and taking cruises with long time friends and his brother and sister in-law. He and Evelyn were fantastic grandparents, spending countless hours traveling around the state to watch their grandsons participate in sporting events and music programs.
Don is survived by his wife Evelyn, his sisters Theresa Logan and Lucille Long, Brother David Mero, three sons, Ken Mero (Catrina), Mike Mero and Doug Mero (Rebecca), as well as 4 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren
