Obituary for Ivan S Meacham

Ivan S. Meacham, age 82, of Lowry City, MO passed away on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at Truman Lake Manor, Lowry City, MO.

Ivan was born May 19, 1936. His parents were Adrian and Lena ‘Snyder’ Meacham. He grew up on his family farm in Lowry City, MO and spent lots of time with his extended family. It was here that he developed his lifelong love for hunting and fishing. Ivan moved to Kansas City, KS, as a teenager where he attended Wyandotte High School and later received his Associates Degree from KCKCC. During this time he also taught himself to play guitar and played with various Country and Bluegrass musicians throughout his life. After college he served in the U.S. Army during peacetime.

Ivan met the love of his life, Barbara Purnell, on a blind date set up by close friends. He married her on June 12, 1965. They later had two children which they traveled and camped with extensively.

Ivan worked as an installer and cable splicer for Southwestern Bell. He was able to retire at the age of 47 and move back to his family farm. He settled into retirement by regularly playing cards, attending Bluegrass festivals (his favorite being Starvy Creek) and taking the boat out fishing on Truman Lake. Ivan never met a stranger and he made many friends, and kept them for life, everywhere he went. His family, friends and neighbors were what made him smile and his heart full.

Survivors include his wife, Barbara of the home; a daughter, Jodie Dickman (Steve) of Shawnee, KS; a son, Jason Meacham (Colleen Stanton) of Deepwater, MO; other extended family and several friends.

Preceding Ivan in death were his parents and a granddaughter, Kendra Meacham.

The family will receive visitors from 6:00 to 7:30 PM on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at Consalus Funeral Home. A funeral service is scheduled at 11:00 AM on Friday, October 5, 2018, at Consalus Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Landaker Cemetery, Lowry City, MO.

The family has requested that memorial contributions be made to Landaker Cemetery Fund and left in care of Consalus Funeral Home, 209 S. 2nd St., Clinton, MO 64735. The family would also like to extend a big thank you to the staff of Truman Lake Manor. They were absolutely amazing!
