Marlin G. Meek, II

June 6, 2019

 

Meek, Marlin G. II, “Beanie”, 66, died in FL, June 6, with his wife Barbara at his side.  Born November 14, 1952, in Windber, PA; son of Marlin G. and Mary (Helman) Meek.  Preceded in death by his father; great-nephew Trevor; mother- and father -in-laws, Marianne and Rudy Mayercsik; and beloved dog, Scotty. Survived by wife of 40 years, Barbara (Mayercsik); mother; sisters, Deborah Meek, and Rebecca (William Jack) Dick, all of FL; and brother-in-law Frank Mayercsik of PA.  Also survived by 4 nieces/nephews; 9 great- nieces/nephews, including Godson William Edwin Dick, all of FL. Marlin graduated from Windber HS, received BA from PA CA State College, Graduate Mortician from Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science, passed Boards for both PA and FL State Funeral Directors, and was certified for Eye Enucleation from U of Pitt School of Medicine.  Served as PA Somerset County Deputy Coroner for several years; and previously active with many Windber organizations. Fourth generation to own/operate Meek Funeral Home, Windber.  He later purchased and operated Marron Funeral Home, and built All Faiths Mausoleum, Windber.  He loved operating a business that put service and comfort of others first.  He retired to enjoy remainder of life with his wife and canine daughter, Scotty; and created many loving memories traveling with their plane or boat.  Loved socializing with many friends who ultimately became family.  He was a certified scuba diver, instrument rated private pilot, and motor yacht captain. He will be remembered for his candid personality; love of making others laugh; and occasional, witty sense of inappropriate humor.  Always worked hard, yet lived life to its fullest.  Never afraid of tackling something new.  Although sometimes mis-understood, if he was your friend, he would stop at nothing to give support as he believed appropriate.  He always considered PA as home and loved his golfing friends, but his desire for warm weather and living life on, in, or near water kept him more often in FL.  Home was where the anchor dropped. Blessed with so many who supported him in thought and prayer during his courageous two-year battle for life.  Visitation will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2019, from 10 am until  time of Funeral Service at 1pm at Harris Funeral Home, 500 Cherry Lane, Johnstown, PA with  Deacon Scott Little, officiating.  Committal at later date at Grandview Cemetery.
