The past several weeks have been difficult ones for the American Coach Family. We sadly report the loss of two friends-
South Central President Leon Allen Meek passed away on February 4th, 2019
Leon Allen Meek II, age 75, went to see his Lord peacefully on February 4, 2019, at his home in Smith Point, Texas. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Allen is survived by his wife, Vicki McComas Meek, of Smith Point; her children Kevin McComas and wife Jessie of Katy, TX, Joel McComas and wife Kris of Fulshear, TX; his nieces, Keren Grissom and husband Garrett and Carla Venette and husband Adam, both of Cypress, TX; his grandchildren, Kelly McComas, JT McComas, Reagan McComas, Josh McComas; and his grandnephew Sam Venette, and grandnieces, Erin Venette and Audrey Grissom.
Allen was a social and active man who was involved in Rotary Club for many years. After retirement, he moved with Joyce to Smith Point, TX to enjoy a simpler life of boating and fishing. He made friends wherever he went and became immersed in the small community, helping organize the annual fish fry and auction, participating in the Fourth of July parades, and even volunteering as a fire fighter. Most recently he enjoyed traveling and attending RV rallies with Vicki and served as the President of the South Central Chapter of the American Coach Association.
His wife, Vicki and the members of their beloved chapter have asked that, in lieu of flowers, anyone wishing to should send a donation to VA Dogs of Texas and any money donated in memorial to Allen will be credited to the South Central chapter going toward our purchase of the next dog we sponsor. There is a link: www.vadogs.org Please make sure the donation is in memory of Allen Meek.
February 4th, 2019 also marked the passing of Southwest Chapter member, Jay Ingle. We will never forget the joy and excitement of Gail and Jay’s wedding at the Spearfish National Rally last year. It was a wonderful time for a wonderful couple. Our hearts go out to Gail and Jay’s children. May he rest is peace and may they always remember the good times. We will.
