Patrick Dietrich Meyer


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Patrick Dietrich Meyer, who passed the morning of Tuesday, March 28, 2023, after a long battle with brain cancer. Surrounded by his loving family, Patrick passed away at his home in Cleveland, Minnesota at the age of 58.

Patrick was born on February 5, 1965, in Mankato, Minnesota to Denis Paul Meyer and Sandra Louise Meyer, née Ellerbrock. He attended Mankato West High School and graduated in 1983. In 1994 Patrick married his soulmate Michelle, whom he affectionately referred to as his “sweet angel.” Together, they raised their two sons, Tony and Travis.

Patrick pursued a successful career in sales with passion and dedication, having worked for various companies before landing his last role as Fleet Sales Manager at Snell Motors in Mankato. His colleagues at Snell became a second family to him, and he was held in high esteem by all who knew him, not only for his work ethic but for the sincere care he displayed to every single client.

Outside of work, Patrick was always the life of the party. He enjoyed having backyard bonfires, pontooning on the lake, and spending time at Westwood with friends. He also looked forward to escaping Minnesota's chilly winters by vacationing in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Most of all, he cherished the time he spent with his family. Patrick was an incredible father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He will be remembered for his kind and loving nature, infectious sense of
humor, and unwavering devotion to his loved ones.

Throughout his battle with cancer, Patrick never lost his zest for life. He remained an inspiration to everyone around him, using his newfound social media persona, "Q Tip on the Go," to share messages of positivity and keep loved ones informed of his journey. He had a significant impact on everyone he crossed paths with.

Patrick leaves behind his dear wife, Michelle Meyer, née Bruns; two sons, Anthony Meyer and Travis (Tori) Meyer; niece, Jena Mulcahey, née Gereau; mother, Sandra Meyer; brother, Paul (Sue) Meyer; in-laws, Darwin and Carla Bruns; sister-in-law, Sheri Bruns; as well as several cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Patrick was preceded in death by his father, Denis Meyer; paternal grandparents, Arnold and Bernice Meyer; maternal grandparents, Joseph and Bernice Ellerbrock; several aunts, uncles, and a close cousin Donny Wichmann.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Patrick Dietrich Meyer, who passed away Tuesday, March 28th, 2023, on Sunday, May 7th, 2023 from 2:00pm-5:00pm at Westwood Marina on Lake Washington, Kasota. Memorials will be sent to Mankato Elks Club in honor of Patrick, who was a member with them for several years.
