Meyer, Steven Matthew

August 7, 1966 – March 28, 2019

Steven Meyer passed away unexpectedly on March 28, 2019 after a brief illness. Steve was born August 7, 1966 in Van Nuys, California and lived his entire life in the San Fernando Valley. Typical of many growing up in the area, he enjoyed skateboarding from the early days of Skatercross, BMX racing, skiing and surfing. He took pleasure in numerous family vacations to Balboa Island in Newport Beach and Lake Tahoe, as well as longer trips in the family station wagon. He continued many of these activities as he grew up, replacing the BMX bike with a motorcycle or mountain bike, but as an adult he also like to fish and hike. His skiing trips took him to a variety of locations including Mammoth Mountain, Colorado and Austria.

After graduating High School at San Fernando Valley Christian, Steve received a degree in Communications from California State University Northridge. He worked over two decades in the entertainment industry, first at Castlerock Entertainment and later at Walden Media supporting the operations in the production of numerous movies and television programs. He found the business interesting, but particularly liked the people with which he worked.

After marriage, he enjoyed travelling with his wife, particularly back east to visit extended family and loved being an uncle. It was difficult for him when circumstances prevented him from being as active and adventurous as he wished, but he always had a kind heart and tried to be a friend to all, as he cherished his close friendships. He was preceded in death by his father, Robert and is survived by mother Carol, brother Daniel and numerous cousins, aunts and uncles in Michigan and Nebraska.

A Graveside Service will be held at Oakwood Memorial Park, Chatsworth Ca., at 11:00 A.M. on Thursday, April 4.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to a Memorial Fund for Steven Meyer at First Presbyterian Church, of Granada Hills California 10400 Zelzah Ave. Northridge, CA 91326.

I did not get to see my nephew Steve very often as half the United States separated us. Some years back my sister Ann and I got to leave our husbands home and fly out to California together to visit our brother Bob and his family. It was very cold and wet back in Michigan so Ann and I were enjoying the warmth of the California sun one morning. We had ventured outside in our pajamas to soak up the early morning sun while our brother Bob served us coffee. Out comes Steve wearing jeans and a leather jacket with his hands in his pockets and shivering. He is incredulous that we are sitting outside in nothing more than PJs. He acted as if he were in the anartic and we felt like we were in the tropics .

Steve's is our brother from another mother as we always said. What wouldn't he do for you, we have SO many memories of Steve from our childhood on Amigo to just laughing at Franksgiving.
A recent memory is when our dad passed away and we had to drive to Arizona to collect his things- when we got back we were so pooped but still had to return the moving truck- but Steve offered to drive it and drop it off for us- Steve just did it because he was awesome, but it meant the world to us.
So many memories of such a beautiful soul... he will be missed by us all. Steve is safely home now into the waiting arms of his dad, and God, and the wagging tails of ginger and shilling -hopefully they have some fishing to do ♥

I am so sorry to see Steve leave this world. He and I worked together from the inception of Walden Media until 2010. He was a big music fan and we would often share great stories of concerts, motorcycles, and movies at the office. He was always the first offer help if there was an issue and as reliable as a Timex watch if something needed to be tended to. His calm and positive demeanor was a refreshing daily offering in the sometimes cynical world of entertainment. Steve will surely be missed by many and I will miss hearing his voice on the AFG answering machine. I hope you're at peace my friend.
