Born in: Flagg, TX
Resided in: Colorado Springs, CO

EARL EUGENE MEEK, 89, 11-10-31 to 11-27-2020
Gene Meek was born in Flagg, Texas to Sterling Meek and Ruby McDaniel. He was a world traveler in his military career ( Naval air corps 4-25-51 to 4-15-55) and his personal life. His final destination was the pearly gates of heaven, where he was reunited with his beloved wife, Olivia Carolina; and cherished son, David, both of which left us far too soon. He is survived by son, Larry and Lavonne Meek; daughters, Debbie and Loren Zimmerman, Millie and Buddy Robbins, Teri and Jerry Rose, Cecilia and Geno Wright and Olivia Jessica Medrano; 9 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and far too many other family members to name. He attended high school in Plainview, Texas-class of 49, University of Idaho-class of 50, and Lipperts Business College-class of 56. He applied his trade in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado Springs District court 65-71, Kirkpatrick and Meek Reporting 68-84, and Earl Meek and Associates 84-93, retiring in early 94. He retired to Colorado City where he worshiped regularly at Valley Community Church. After the death of his wife he then moved to Brookdale Vista Grande, Colo. Spgs in 2016. There he became their goodwill ambassador, bingo caller, librarian, and part time gardener. He loved the outdoors, mountains, fishing, hunting, and some years, the Denver Broncos.
His absence will leave a huge void both with the family and at Brookdale, and he will be greatly missed. Due to the current condition of the world, the celebration of his life will be sometime in the spring, to be determined later.

  1. CandleImageGene was a major influencer during the 19 years he was married to my mother Tommi. He was a gentle, strong, funny man who loved my sister’s and I no matter what direction life took us. The absolute best Stepdad in the world.

  2. CandleImageI know Gene Gene from a different time than the latter part of his life.
    He was my step grandpa and I truly loved and enjoy him.
    He was so kind and caring and sweet to all of us kids.
    He was jovial and funny and the time we spent with him he made sure to go all out for us kids.
    He was a good man and am sorry I didn’t reconnect with him later in life as an adult.
    I am happy to see he was much loved and cherish in life as he should be.
    Rest In Peace Gene Gene.

    It was never forgotten ❤️🙏🏼

  3. CandleImageMy condolences to the entire family. He was a gem to know with memories I’ll always cherish my times I got to spend with him & Carol at their home in CO and when they would travel to Cali at my parents house. My Mom thought the world of her tall handsome cousin whom she finally got to meet around the age of 15 and him 17 when my grandmother and mom drove to TX. There was a special place in my Mom’s heart for cousin Gene. I’m so glad I took my mom, Germaine prior to her passing in 2/19, to visit him on our trip to the mid-west in Sept 2018. It was so special to spend that time with them together although they were both using walkers, the mind was still so keen and the love of the McDaniel heritage as they were the last surviving first cousins. After my mom’s passing, Gene would often call me and we would have nice conversations about every month or so. It was so special to me. He’d always say…my memory is not so good any more…and I’d tell him it’s far better then you think. I’ll miss thos phone calls as the last one I made to him was on his birthday and I never heard back from him early November…I wondered what was up…and life got busy and I was going to call soon, but….it all makes sense cuz Gene would’ve called me back, he always did, but most often, he’d call me. Well, my parents and Gene and his wife Carol went to Europe together and they had some wonderful memories together. Now they are reunited in heaven. My heart is sad for his passing yet filled with joy as he’s with Jesus as we would talk about our going home some day. He so wanted to outlive his Grand-Daddy Jack, and fell short, yet he reached the pearly gates and that’s what is most important. I thank Gene for sharing the family memories with me, those phone calls after my mother died and the comfort I received from him just in conversation and reminiscing and the love of our heritage. I thank him for the wonderful memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

  4. I came to know Gene when I worked for Tom Jagger for so many years. He was such a kind man and always had something interesting, positive or humorous to share with our staff. I was sorry to hear he’d retired because I’d miss the wonderful person he was when he visited our office as well as of his passing, but will always remember him … and those memories will bring a smile to my heart.

  5. We are so sad about Gene. He was such a kind soul. We went to church with Gene at Belmont Nazarene for many years, also with Carol– We missed them when they went to Colorado City and visited also with them there. Last year we went to Brookdale and visited with Gene. We recalled old memories and he seemed so happy there. We want to bring condolences to all the family. He is now with Jesus and with Carol. I can only imagine what they are experiencing there. We will pray for your family to allow grief to come and go with the happiness of knowing they are well and you will see them again. Roger and Ann Wright

  6. What a wonderful person to have known. He was always full of life, good jokes and always showed interest in other’s lives. I fondly remember the Wednesday night group, visiting the home here in Pueblo and later in Colorado City. Wonderful, wonderful memories.

  7. Jesseica and family, I remember your parents well. They were always so warm, welcoming, friendly and genuine. I pray God will bless you and give you peace at this difficult time. My deepest sympathy to all.
    With love, Dianne (Miller) Bonney…Dana’s mom

  8. Gene was a great court reporter and friend. He helped us in many cases, sometimes even into the early evening when we had to complete depositions. I missed him when he retired, but always felt great when I would see him around town or the car show in Colorado City.

    While his passing diminishes us here, I know heaven is enhanced with him there.

  9. Uncle Gene was a wonderful man, who I loved dearly. I will miss him immensely. He was a strong influence in our family.
