I will miss Jim, and his ready smile, and big bear hugs. When I was a young teenager, walking to the Dairy Queen in the summer with my friend Becky, Jim would often be driving through town in one fancy car or another - usually a convertible, with the top down, and would take us for a short ride. I felt very important, and special. He made people feel special, and important, and he made everyone laugh, something we all need to do more of. My thoughts and prayers to Karen and Richard. Jayne

I am so sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. I worked with Jim at Swan Hose for many years and knew him well. We shared many good times together. I had dinner with him no to many years ago and was sorry to hear he was in a nursing home. I also replaced Jim as Customer Service supervisor when he moved to sales for Swan. I also knew Lisa and she worked for Wasserstrom when I worked after leaving Swan. Both Lisa and Jim were special people and will be missed. Jim always had a good sense of humor and was the guy who kept the group together at Christmas time for a dinner.

You’ve been good friends with my dad for a long time and I knew you as Uncle Jim. I have fond memories of you from my childhood, including ruining your dryer because I left bubble gum in my pockets. You handled that with grace! And then you called me from Ohio on my wedding day, wishing me countless blessings. That really meant a lot to me. A million memories have faded from my mind but those remain deeply seeded. Thank you for being a part of them and for all the years of brotherhood with my dad.

One of my favorite family members of my husband's Mike Minshall (R.I.P.) was James I. Meeker! - Jim, Mike and I had many fun times together, always a joy when he stopped by to visit. - Even a few days after our Wedding as Jim was Mike's 'Best Man' - he chose to stop by 'unannounced' at our 'honeymoon apartment' - - singing and laughing and shouting up the front yard of our townhouse as our neighbors heard him coming!! Jim just 'didn't realize that Best Man duties ceased haha and were now to be undertaken by my husband LOL!! Jim was returning his tuxedo in a timely manner. Always making us laugh and good company. I will miss Jim's phone calls and company, and Christmas at the Meeker Farm. Condolences to my second family - The Meekers and Cousins. Love, Mary

I met Jim 62 years ago while we both were serving in the military. He became a treasured friend and we shared many stories of good and bad times through the years. When he lived in Jacksonville, Florida for awhile where my family lives, he became another brother to my younger siblings. He always was included in family gatherings and he was loved and admired by all of them. You will be missed, my friend, The Meek. Rest In Peace. Our prayers for Richard, Karen and all of the family. God bless you with peace and comfort. Lots of love, Jim(Dick) & Lynn Walker

I’ll miss miss you cousin Jim. You were always lots of fun when we enjoyed each other’s company at family reunions and the old Der Dutchman. When I was just a youngster I was always impressed with you ability to punt a football over the tallest tree around your house on Route 42, I assumed that you would play for the Buckeyes. It was astonishing to me that when you returned from your Air Force assignment in Japan you spoke a couple of Japanese words, I thought you were completely fluent in the language, how cool! Rest In Peace Jim. I’ll miss your company and stories.

Knew Jim well in high school at JAHS but prior to that cut my teeth on loading hay onto the wagon and into the barn behind a rig driven by his Dad, Arthur Meeker, on the Darby Plains and then playing basketball in Johnny Roby's barn hayloft. Those were much more gracious days than we now experience. My sympathies to Richard and Karen. Ross Walker

Jim was a real joker, always ready for my carrot cake at our reunions. Call most of us girls "Pumpkin" I'll miss him and his jokes. Praying that his family find peace.
