Tim M. Meek, 87, passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 10th, in the house he built himself. 

 Mr. Meek was born on May 18, 1930 in South Bend to the late Charles E. and Dorothy (McCague) Meek.

 On June 7, 1952, in South Bend, Tim married Nan McCracken, who survives along with their son, Jon T. (Rosemary) Meek of Williamsburg, VA., two grandchildren, Molly Meek of Powhatan, VA and Jordan T. Meek of Portland, ME and a sister-in-law, Jeannie (Denny) Everett of South Bend. Tim was preceded in death by his son, Tod A. Meek (age 17). Tim was also very close to his mother-in-law, Peggy McCracken.

 He proudly served in the U.S. Army during the Korean Conflict.

 Tim was a home builder in the Michiana area for many years with the former McCracken Home Builders and was a Supervisor of Maintenance at South Bend International Airport, retiring at the age of 70. He was blessed to have lived in the house he built with the pond until his death. He enjoyed the birds and pond monster he built. Tim also enjoyed collecting antique carpenter tools, woodworking, sailing on Eagle Lake and being a scout leader.

 In lieu of flowers contributions may be given in Mr. Meek’s name to Sumption Prairie United Methodist Church, 24535 Roosevelt Road, South Bend, IN 46614.

 Visitation for Tim will be on Friday, March 16th from 11:00 A.M. until time of service. Memorial Service will be held at 12:00 P.M., at Sumption Prairie United Methodist Church with Pastor Trenton Prieshoff, officiating. Burial will take place at Porter Rae Cemetery in Potato Creek State Park in North Liberty at a later date. His wishes were to be cremated, which his loving family honored.

 The HANLEY and Sons Funeral Home and Cremation Service handled arrangements and extends its deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to the Meek family.

Timmy, your memory will live on in the lives you touched and the work of your talented hands. You were a great neighbor and Scouting mentor, helping with pinewood derby cars and lending advice to various scouting merit badge projects.

You will be missed. Rest in the peace of Christ.

I only met Tim through his wonderful wife Nan, and only spoke to him once. I only caught a glimpse of the kind of person he was; but that was enough. His love for his family shone through all the things he made & collected & the way he talked of his loved ones.
