Loren "Bill" Meier

     Loren Jim “Bill” Meier died January 22, 2023, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the age of 78 years 10 months 7 days.  Funeral services are scheduled for 1:00 PM, Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at the Wadley’s Funeral Chapel.   

     Bill was born March 15, 1944, in Sterling, Illinois to Milo Jim and Helen Joyce (Smith) Meier.  He was raised in Illinois until he was the age of 15, when he moved to Oklahoma.  While attending the Church of the First Born, he met the love of his life, Sharon Ilene Foote.  They were later married on August 2, 1962, in Norman, Oklahoma, and together raised four children.  Bill and Sharon made their home in OKC for 5 years, then they moved to the state of Washington, where they lived for 10 years.  In 1982, the family moved back to the Norman area.  Bill and Sharon were married for 47 years when Sharon died in 2009.  Bill was baptized into the General Assembly and Church of the First Born by Brother Lowell Thompson.  Painting was not only Bill’s career, but it was also his passion, taught to him by his father-in-law, Carl Foote.  Bill enjoyed a good joke and was always pulling pranks on his family and friends.  When Bill wasn’t working, he was spending time with Sharon and his children. They were big OU Sooners fans and enjoyed an impromptu vacation.  Bill enjoyed casinos and enjoyed eating out at restaurants, enjoying good food.  He also loved snacks and candy.  Bill loved his family, as well as spontaneous visits with anyone, anywhere, at any time.  

     Bill is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Sharon Meier; his sons, Jamie Meier and Christopher Meier; his In-Laws, Carl and Ila Mae Foote, Karen and Martin Nere, and Ronnie Foote. Survivors include his daughter, Nicole Roundtree and husband, Jay of Noble; his son, Kim Meier of Oklahoma City; his grandchildren, Jeremy Meier and wife, Cindy, Colby John, Ashley Enos and husband, Kodey, Bailee Williamson, Jaxon Roundtree; his great granddaughters, Tessa Meier and Adelynn Enos; his brother-in-law, Randy Foote and wife, Elizabeth; his cousin, Peggy Goto; and numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
