Louis Albert Meyer of Moraga, passed away on December 30, 2017 in the presence of family at the age of 80.

He was an educator, an alumni of St. Mary’s College, Moraga (Class 59) and graduate of Sacred Heart High School in San Francisco. Following 5 decades of service to Sacred Heart he retired in 2002 as Vice Principal; his dedication earned him the school’s highest award: the Lasallian Vincentian Alumni Award. The Louis A. Meyer General Scholastic Excellence Award, created in his honor, has become the schools most distinguished academic award. Additionally the international Institute of the Christian Brothers bestowed upon him their highest honor and installed him as an affiliate to the Christian Brothers.

He loved all things outdoors including hiking, boating, hunting, fishing, and wildlife.

Above all, he was a devoted husband, loving father, and grandfather. He follows his wife of 51 years Virginia (Ginnie); and is survived by his children, Louis (Kelley), Michelle, and Chris (Gretchen); his grandchildren, Riley, Sammy, Kiran, Thea.
