William Harley Meeks III passed away at the age of 55 in his favorite place in the world, his hunting cabin in Shelbyville.
A Celebration of Life service will be held 12 p.m.-2:30 p.m. followed by family and friends sharing memories of Billy at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 17, 2022, in the chapel of Doak-Howell Funeral Home.
He is survived by his children, Craig and Kyle, two grandsons, Harley and Wesley, a granddaughter, Brooklyn, his mother Linda Meeks Mellen, her husband, Robert, his brother Daniel Meeks, his wife Brenda, nephew Mason, his sister Michele Dejongh, her husband Sean, niece Autumn, and great niece Kalianne, as well as several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is predeceased by his father William H. Meeks, Jr.
Billy was an avid hunter and was happiest roaming the woods near his cabin or working on one of his many beautiful hand-crafted wood projects like the family table he made in high school, surprising everyone with his natural carpentry talent.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to a favorite charity of Billy’s, The Wounded Warrior Project at https://support.woundedwarriorproject.org.
Doak-Howell Funeral Home is serving the family.
