David Meacham Jr.

Suffolk, VA
01.09.1969 - 05.31.2018

David Meacham was granted freedom from cancer pain and heartache on May 29, 2018.

He was pre-deceased by his beloved Uncle Randy Thomas Gardner and Grandfather D. T. Gardner who are surely waiting for him in heaven.

David is survived by his Mother, Faye Elizabeth Gardner; his Son, Christopher Thomas Meacham; Daughter, Elizabeth Meacham; Brother, Bryan Thomas Meacham; and Grandmother, Florence Gardner. All who will miss him every day.

David had been a business owner in Suffolk, VA for many years and owned property in North Carolina where he spent many happy hours with his children.

He was a very talented man who could build and fix anything. His final years were not what he would want to be remembered for but a memory of moments where he touched your life would be a welcome memorial to his family. David, who is gone too soon is a reminder to show love to those who matter and to be kind to one another.

Services will be private. The family is being assisted by R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home and Crematory. Condolences may be offered at RWBakerFH.com.



Faye, I am so sorry to hear of Davey's death. I know you and your family are heartbroken to have this horrible disease of cancer take your precious son's life at such a young age. The only time I saw Davey was when he was a small child when I visited you. I enjoyed the pictures of him on this site and was surprised to see he had inherited your Mom's red hair. He was a handsome man and I know you will all miss him so much. A mother should never have to bury her child.
I will always remember the fun and great times we had while in high school and would love to see you again.
Randy and I will keep you and your family in our prayers. I pray God will wrap his loving arms around you all in the hard days to come and give you his comfort and peace.

Davy, you were my childhood super hero. I will always cherish our memories together and the love you gave me. You were the best big cousin in the world to me. My heart aches that you are gone, but I am thankful that you are no longer in pain. I will forever cherish our last words to each other. I love you always, rest easy sweet cousin.

Faye, Chris, and Mrs. Gardner,
I am so very sorry about Davy. I know your hearts are broken right now. I will always think of Davy as I first saw him when he was 7 years old, so cute and energetic. We spent many happy hours down at Holiday Island with all of the kids during long ago summers. Watching the kids as they grew and became men has seemed to happen in the blink of an eye. Davy was so handsome and such a hard worker. I will remember every moment I shared with him. He is going to be missed.
Love to you all,

Deborah Thomas

Faye and Aunt Florence and kids,
I am so sorry for the your loss. I know Davey will no longer be in pain and no more suffering. I can see Uncle DT and Randy standing at those golden gate doors with arms open waiting to greet him. Davey will surely be missed. My God give you the strength needed to pull through these hard times. I love you all..

My dear cousin Davy; I cherish our childhood memories of playing together and being together for the holidays at Grandmas House. May you rest comfortably. I love you

To my M.I.S.S. sister in Christ. My heart is heavy for you and your family. May God hold you up during your grief. My prayers will be many for you and yours, knowing God hears all of of them and answers according to His will. Although you will miss him, his is feeling no pain or sorrow today and evermore. God bless all of you.
