Obituary

David L. McMeeken, age 73, former resident of Shelby, died unexpectedly in his home, Sunday, January 15, 2023.

Born November 23, 1949, in Shelby to Lowell Edwin and Charlotte Irene (Taylor) McMeeken, he had been a Tiro resident since 1988.  Dave was a 1968 graduate of Shelby High School, a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and served in two tours in Seoul Korea. He had furthered his education at NC State in Mansfield, where he had attended classes for Electrical Engineering. Dave had been employed with AMF, Phillips MFG., Peco II and most recently, ArcelorMittal, where he had retired.

As a lover of old cars and motorcycles, Dave enjoyed collecting and working on Hudson's and other classics. He was a great musician, and his specialty was the organ. He could play by ear and would play for his church from time to time.

Dave is survived by his sister Gail Adams; niece Kerri (Matt) Burkett and their children Sidney and Garrett Lindner; nephew Nathan Adams all of Shelby; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and other relatives.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Charles and Ina (Taylor) Frederick and paternal grandparents Rev. Roscoe and Josephine (Stemm) McMeeken and brother-in-law Bill Adams. 

Friends may visit at the Barkdull Funeral Home & Crematory in Shelby from 10:00 to 11:00 AM, Saturday, February 11, 2023. A memorial service will be held immediately following at the funeral home at 11:00 AM. Pastor James Macdonald will officiate with interment held in Oakland Cemetery.
