Daniel K. “Pork” Meier, age 53, of Burton, passed away on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, at his home surrounded by his family. He was born on May 19, 1969, in Lancaster, the son of William and LaVon (Slaght) Meier. Pork graduated from Cassville High School in 1988. He worked for Bernie Fecht and later was employed at Flexsteel in Dubuque, IA. Pork remained working for Bernie during his employment at Flexsteel. In the later 1990’s, he began Meier Concrete which he owned and operated up to present time. Concrete work was not just a job to Pork. It was his passion and his hobby. Pork was a dedicated hard-working man who loved meeting new and old clients on a job. On May 12, 2012, he was united in marriage to Lynn Anderson at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Burton. Pork enjoyed road cruising, ranger riding, fishing, Busch Light, pontoon rides on the river, junking steel, and old country music. He also enjoyed old cars, tractors, and dirt bikes. Pork dearly loved spending time with his family and good friends and always had his little red cooler by his side. He will be greatly missed.
