Kenneth Abe Meador. A husband. A Poppi. A father. A brother. A man's man that will be forever missed.
Kenny (aka Pig) passed away Monday, February 26th after a long, noble fight following complications from surgery. It comes as no surprise to those that knew him he kept his willful spirit with him throughout his entire life, including these last weeks. He was playful and generous and the greatest gift he gave us all was the gift of unconditional love.
Born October 4, 1951 at home in Jumping Branch, Summers County, to Odie and Doris Jean Meador, he learned young the value of hard work. He owned and managed Odie Meador Lumber Company for many years. He completed a full time career as an Engineer with CSX Railroad and retired a little over a year ago.
In addition to his professional career he was a full time family man and food enthusiast rarely missing a family cook-out. He earned a million mile badge driving back and forth between WV and NC visiting his daughters and grandsons. He spent new found time in retirement working alongside Kay at the Double K Farm gardening, completing the edges of jig saw puzzles, fishing the Bluestone, watching Westerns between afternoon naps and enjoying the laughter of his grandsons.
He is survived in death by his wife Marilyn Kay Meador, daughters Cami Meador (son in law, David Sitton) and Alison Steele, sister Diannia Perdue (brother in law, Stanley Perdue) and grandsons Mead (2 years) and Ward Sitton (7 months) plus his energetic schnauzers: Sparky and Groovy.
He is preceded in death by his parents Odie and Doris Jean Meador, his brother Larry Meador and his daughter Mandi Ellen Meador.
Private graveside services and burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. Thursday, March 1, 2018 at the Meador Family Cemetery at Nimitz, with Pastor Robbie Merritt officiating. There will be no visitation.
