Local resident and business owner Bill Meagher passed away

Well known to area locals, local Myers Flat resident and business owner Bill Meagher has passed away.

Initially, a reader contacted me and asked if I could do a write up. This is someone who saw Mr. Meagher regularly.

I did not publish the news right away. After this facebook post, I decide to go ahead and publish this post.


  1. Oh wow...My parents use to work for him when I was younger

  2. Back in '92 when I ran for Supervisor in the 2nd district (lost to Roy Heider) Bill's place in Myers Flat was always a welcome stop for us. He would cook a huge steak and the campaign would have a late dinner. He had endorsed Roger Rodoni, who got the seat after Heider's first term, before I came to know him, but was helpful and a lot of fun for us. Sorry to hear he's gone. He had a great spirit.

  3. We are very sad to have had to say farewell to this wonderful man and father.
    There are two Celebration of Life Events organized. The first is on Friday August 4, 2017 at 6pm at Gobles Mortuary, 560 12th St, Fortuna, CA 95540.
    The second is at the Myers Flat Saloon on Tuesday 08/08/17 starting at 7pm.
    Everyone is welcome at both celebrations.
    We want the many people who knew him to be able to celebrate him. More information can be obtained from Thomas & Rika Meagher. Phone 707.943.9907.
    We would love to celebrate Dad's life with you all.
