Darin E. Meier, 53, of Fargo, ND, formerly of Houston, MN, and Hillsboro, ND, passed into the hands of God on Sunday, November 28, 2021. Darin lost a hard-fought battle with COVID-19. Darin was born on May 21, 1968, in Elgin, ND. He attended high school at Hillsboro High School, where he graduated in 1986. Darin attended and graduated from Mayville State College, where he made lifelong friends that he enjoyed spending time with all through the years. Darin had his own view on life. He was passionate about his beliefs as well as those he cared about. Darin had a passion for music and sports. He loved attending concerts (he had attended over 200 of them), posting daily song posts, and chatting with everyone about any type of music. Darin was a Minnesota Vikings fan as well as a die-hard Atlanta Braves fan like his Grandpa Mike. Darin was so excited to watch his Braves win the World Series in 2021. Darin's other love was for his nephews, niece, and great-nephew. He was their biggest fan as well as their best friend. He left a little part of him within each one of them. Darin passed with his love Kathy by his side. Kathy was, in his words, his soulmate. They did everything together, from work to concerts, from traveling to playing games. She was his perfect match. Darin was survived by his girlfriend Kathy Thoreson, father and step-mother Dennis & Lonna Meier, sisters Kristy Folz and BreAnne Meier, nephews Andrew Folz and Alex Folz, niece Alene Folz, great-nephew Grayson, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins who all loved him dearly. Darin was preceded in death by his mother Rosalee Geray, his uncles Raymond Schiwal, DeLane Meier, and Gerald Meier, his grandparents Michael Schiwal, Georgia Schiwal, Herman Meier, and Anna Meier, and his cousins Lois Goetz and Clinton Meier. Darin will be loved and missed by so many people. Visitation will be from 12:30-2:00 PM with a Funeral Service at 2 PM on Saturday, December 4, 2021 at Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo.

  1. R.I.P. My friend. We had lots of good times, a few bad times…… But through it all, we always managed to stay friends!!! You will be very much missed my friend!!

  2. I can’t wrap my head around that you have passed. You just responded the morning before to my message on how you were doing. I thought you would be kicking Covid to the curb. You can again play basketball and track with our classmates that you have now joined. You will be missed my friend.

  3. Kristy,Dennis and family I’m so sorry for your loss! It is hard to lose a brother even harder to lose a child my heart goes out to you!

  4. Darin, I remember meeting you for the first time when you moved to Houston, mn. I was too had only moved there a few weeks before you. You and I hit it off instantly..wow! Someone who likes to go to concerts as much as I do. You introduced me to your sister and her family. You introduced Me to your mom who too was so kind. I felt in a small way like part of your family. And then I had a daughter. There was no question about it, you were going to be the God Father of my child. And you are. You will be so terribly missed. You were so good with her. I love you man.
    P.s. when you get your wings, would you mind giving my guardian angle a hand? I’m pretty sure he could use a reprieve.
    Goodbye my friend!

  5. My condolences to my cousin Dennis Meier on the loss of his son, Darin. My heart breaks for you and your family. May God bless you all during this painful time. Love, Renee

  6. Bye Darin. So. Sad to hear you left us all. You was a great cousin to all us Meier children and think your. Grand parents would be very sad the Good Lord has taken you at such a young age.
    Bye my Cousin Darin 🥲.

  7. There are no words to heal everyone’s broken heart right now. We are sending love and support to the family. Rest in Peace, cousin. We will miss you, Darin.

  8. Darin, 10 years ago I meet you working 3rd shift at Walmart. We always had a good time talking music and concerts you had been to or were looking forward to going to…along with some wise words of advice from the “old guy” haha. After a 2 years of working with you I left Walmart but we always stayed in touch over Facebook..sharing a funny joke..a life event or obviously some GOOD tunes! You will be missed by many. Rest In Peace

  9. To Cousin Dennis and family, We are so sorry for your great loss and pray for you during this very difficult time. May Jesus hold you in his arms and bring you comfort. Rayleen Hansen

  10. I have no words to tell you all( Darin’s family) how heartbreaking the news of Darin passing was. I spent many days with him from babysitting for him in Hillsboro when he was just a little guy and his parents were at work. To him living with us in California for quite some time. I’m sure he will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to his family. May God give you all peace.

  11. Danni, Darin, and Kristy- The three buddies. Since you moved away, it has been difficult to reconnect like before but I will never forget all the wonderful times you three had (Barbies as children-love of music later)
    I am so glad you moved closer in the past few years and we were able to see you more often. “The Music’s Not Forgotten.”
    Love you Darin!

  12. Gosh, where does one start. He was my next door neighbor and childhood friend and playmate. My sister Linda and Patty used to babysit for Darin and Kristy and then I did. I have never knew any one who like Miracle Whip like Darin. Just when you thought you had the right amount on his sandwich, he tell you he needed more Miracle Whip. Darin introduced me to the band KISS. I remember watching KISS Meets the Phantom with him and Kristy. We were glued to the TV. LOL. We used to watch reruns of the Munsters. In the winter we had snowball fights, made snow forts and played “Land of the Lost” on the big mounds of snow. All of us had a great time together. I always loved the songs he would post. Darin was a heck of a good egg. His physical shell may no longer be on this earth but his SOUL will always be with his loved ones. He will always be right beside you. You can talk to him anytime you want, and he will answer with a memory of something he had said. Many hugs to Kristy and family. When you feel sad remember all the funny and fun times you had together. God bless Darin’s family.

  13. My dear cousin,
    So many memories of us as cousins. We shared a love of music like no other. We were close in age. Midway Lanes times, bingo times, Hillsboro times, Grandma Anna times, all I cherish. You were one of a kind. Love to your family ❤️

  14. My deepest condolesences to Dennis and his family. It was a beautiul service and got to know lots about Darin. I wasn’t fortunate to know him, having met him a couple times over the years, but clearly he touched the lives of so many and will be greatly missed. May God be with you all as you grieve your loss, bringing you comfort and peace.
