Larry H. Meeks
Aug. 30, 1949 – Apr. 26, 2019
Larry Meeks, 69, left us peacefully in Midlothian, VA on Friday, April 26, 2019.
Larry was the son of Dorothy Lewis Tasker and Hughes Dillard Meeks; and the brother of Judy Meeks Edler and Matthew Nicholls. He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Gail Schroeder-Meeks; his two beautiful daughters, Kayla Earlywine (Clayton) and Meghan Gbelay (Christopher); and grandson Gbelay on the way.
Larry was a loving husband and father full of vibrant energy with a contagious laugh that could light up any room. He was the definition of a true legend. Larry thrived on giving to others and believed in paying it forward. He was a hard worker, passionate golfer, and a mentor who inspired others.
There will be a Celebration of Life service, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Independence Golf Club in Midlothian, VA., with a reception to follow.

“Who’s your buddy, who’s your pal, who loves you baby” — Larry Meeks
I am so sorry to learn of the death of my buddy, Larry. I knew him through acac, and I occasionally gave him a ride home. He was a sweet man. I am sorry for your loss.
My deepest sympathy and condolences. From kristofer Perry and family..
Thank you! It’s so wonderful to have people in my life like you.
Love is eternal. He is with you always.
Ellen and Jack, I can not express how much you have kept me grounded.😘
I am so saddened by losing my ACAC friend Larry. We exchanged countless jokes and stories over the years and had many conversations about his illness and determination about fighting as long as he could. He is truly one of the legends at the club, known to most, and a friend of all. My last memory was just some few weeks ago when he came to the club he asked me to help him put one of his hands on the handle of a machine he wanted to use. I was honored by his trust and friendship.
I can only imagine his loss for his famiy. Take care. Art Ritter
Arthur, thank you so much for sharing. It keeps me grounded in knowing how much he was loved.
Loved this man dearly….sorry for this loss. Hope you all are doing well.
Thanks Jean! I can see you smiling at one of your encounters.
Dear Gail, Kayla and Megan,
I am so sad to read this news about Larry.
Please take care ,
Thank you Laurie!
I am shocked to hear of Larry’s passing. I just found out from an email that Laurie Bryan sent me today. Although I haven’t been in touch with you, Larry and your whole family have been in my prayers since I spoke with Chloette several months ago. I’ve wanted to call you but I’ve been dealing with my own health issues and, sometimes, it’s hard for me to reach out to people. Larry was a special man who loved his family dearly. Although he is no longer here, Larry will remain forever in the hearts of all who knew him. Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your beloved husband. Your family will continue to be in my prayers. ❤️
I always loved seeing Larry at events that our children shared. More recently, I enjoyed running into him at ACAC and sitting and talking to him about what the girls were up to. He loved Gail so much and he was a proud papa to Kayla and Meghan. His smile, kindness, and sense of humor will be missed by all.
Thank you Robin!😘
Prayerful and thankful for the wonderful Meeks family! Heaven has welcomed another Angel! Thanks for your kindness to my daugjter, Meghan ‘s dear friend. Love, peace ans blessings!
I am deeply sorry for your loss. I hope the pain of grief flies away quickly and only happy memories remain.
Thank you Mary!
I am so very sad that I missed this service. Just found out today. 5-27-19. I’ve known Larry since he was a young boy hanging out at our house in Hampton Va. He was my brothers best friend for a lot of years. I loved him as if he was family. We always laughed so much together. I feel broken hearted that I did not know he was ill because for sure I wpuld have been in touch with you three girls. Always know that your father loved you all more than life. He told me that Gail was the best thing that ever happened to him and the birth of both of you girls was his greatest success story. God bless you all and may Larry be resting in the arms of the Angels😊❤️🙏🏻 Love. Jamie
Jamie, I too am sorry we were not in touch.
Thank you! 🙏’s for you too!
Legacy is not leaving something for people.
It’s leaving something in people.
Larry, my love you have left more than
just “something” in people you’ve touched over the years. Your love, compassion, laughter,
friendship, etc. lives on. To “The Legend”!
You came, you saw, you loved, you lived,
you made an impact!
Forever and Always my love, my soulmate,
my companion, my friend!
“In good times and bad times, I’ll be on
your side forever more, That’s what friends
💜 your wife Gail
