Obituary for Dale Meitzler

Dale “Harry” Meitzler, 77, died Sunday morning, July 15, 2018 in his sleep at home surrounded by his friends and family. Son of Donald & Lillian Meitzler, he was pre-deceased by his parents and brother Grant of Mansfield, CT. He is survived by his brother Berk (Sally) of Brimfield, MA, his niece Elizabeth (Daniel) Meitzler-Guevara of Locust Grove, VA, his nephew Harrison Meitzler of Kearny, NJ, and his nephew Elliot (Erin) Meitzler of Batavia, IL. His dear friends William & Marilyn Ivers of Cherry Hill, NJ, Valdeson Barbosa of Delran, NJ, and Han Ooi of Yardley, PA will miss him greatly.

Harry retired from the U.S. Navy as a Master Chief Petty Officer in 1982 after 22 years of service. He retired from Lockheed-Martin at Moorestown, NJ in 2000 where he was instrumental in the design and development of the AEGIS ships.

Harry was a perfectionist in everything he did. Among his many interests were woodworking, golf, playing pool, fine wine, flower arranging for the Buddhist Temple in Fanwood, NJ, BMWs, fine restaurants and Costco hot dogs. His love for all things Japanese came from the six years he spent living in Japan while working there. His most recent hobby was making fine quality pool cues.

The family wishes to thank Jefferson Home Care, Lighthouse Hospice and Senior Helpers (especially his caregiver Thomas) for the great help they provided him.

Visitation with the family will be Saturday, Aug 4, 2018 from 1 to 4pm at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, 327 Marlton Pike West, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Lighthouse Hospice (, Senior Helpers (, Jefferson Home Care ( or the charities of your choice. Burial will be in the family plot in Brimfield, MA at a later date to be determined by the family.
