Aberdeen said goodbye to a beloved adopted son Saturday during a memorial service for Don Meyer at Northern State University.

After arriving in Aberdeen in 1999 and coaching the Northern men’s basketball team for 11 seasons, Meyer made an impression on a community that came to love and embrace him.

“It feels like he was here for 50 years, but he was only in Aberdeen for 15 years,” said ESPN personality, author and Meyer family friend Buster Olney, of the late coach after the service. “Coming here for the first time in 2008 and seeing the relationship that he had developed with the town and the people, that was amazing.”
