Funeral Home Website

MANALAPAN, NJ -- March 28, 2017 -- Dr. David A. Meirs II, father to SBOANJ director Richard Meirs, died Monday (March 27) at the age of 87 in New Jersey.

With the advent of the New Jersey Sire Stakes program in 1972, he decided to become active in New Jersey’s Standardbred industry and established Walnridge Farm. The first stallion to stand at Walnridge was Peerswick, a horse imported from New Zealand and acquired through Stanley Dancer.

Besides starting the equine clinic, Dr. Meirs served on numerous Veterinary and Agricultural Boards to support most importantly the young veterinarians he helped to become the professionals they are today.

He is survived by his wife, Caroline W. Meirs; his children, David A. Meirs, III (Robin), Dr. Richard S. Meirs (Sherri) and MaryAnn Meirs, BSN, CRRN; 15 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
