Calvin “Mopar” Meyers was born October 15th, 1959 in Belle Fourche. He was the son of William and Ruth (Quenzer) Meyers. Cal grew up in Belle Fourche and graduated from Belle Fourche High School in 1978. In 1981 he was united in marriage to Jana Herman in Belle Fourche. To this 24-year union a son and 3 daughters were born: Chase, Cassidee, Cadee, and Ceylee. In 2009, Cal was united in marriage to Michelle Wildburger. To this union one daughter was born, Kalani. They later divorced in 2017.
Cal was a life long resident of Belle Fourche. From early youth, he loved anything with an engine, boats, snowmobiles, motorcycles, four-wheelers, drag, muscle, and super cars; go carts, etc. After working several years for Lindstad’s Alignment, he made the jump to business owner. In 1992 he and Jana purchased Green’s Alignment. It was a business he adored and was successful with, and where he enjoyed being generous to customers. He was a self-taught and talented mechanic who could often diagnose problems with just his ears. After 25-years he was forced to retire due to health issues.
Calvin owned over 200+ cars during his life. If it had an engine, it pulled him in like a magnet. He was an avid Green Bay Packers fan and also a big fan of drag racing. In 2016, he was diagnosed with Head and Neck cancer. For the next four years he would endure over 100 chemotherapy infusions, and countless trips to hospitals. He loved life and his daughters immensely so lying down and giving up on life was never an option. He’s been a survivor all his life, and also an inspiration to thousands of people. Cal was a wonderful father to all four daughters, who could not been more proud of him. He loved them and they love him back so much. He will be greatly missed and forever cherished.
Cal is survived by his daughters, Cassidee, Cadee, Ceylee, and Kalani Meyers, all of Belle Fourche; brother, James Meyers of Belle Fourche; and countless friends and other relatives.
He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Chase Meyers; sister, Sharon Shear; brothers, William and Richard Meyers; and a special friend, Russ Powell.
