Plan Ahead

David William Meek

March 13, 1965 –
 May 7, 2022


David William Meek, 57, of Dallas, Texas, passed away from pancreatic cancer at his home, surrounded by his loving family, on Saturday, May 7, 2022.

David was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas, on March 13, 1965, to James William Meek and Rebecca Sanders Meek. The family moved to North Little Rock, Arkansas in 1972 where he graduated with honors from Northeast High School in 1983. David graduated from the University of Arkansas School of Architecture in Fayetteville where he was a member of Alpha Rho Chi Fraternity and the American Institute of Architects. David worked for several firms in Little Rock before moving to Dallas in 2008 to work for Rees Associates, Inc., and where he worked for his most recent firm, Hodges Architects.

In 1995, David met the love of his life, David Peters. After being committed to each other for over a decade, David Meek married David Peters on November 6, 2015. They shared an incredible life together, including adopting a beloved dog, Lucca, who joined David’s Siamese cat, Thai, making them a family of four. They loved immersing themselves in Dallas culture including museums, music, movies, and going to comedy clubs together to name a few. David’s love of art and movies also led him to work, for a time, at the Dallas Museum of Art and Landmark’s Magnolia Theatre.

David had many interests from historic homes, the Titanic, and bottle collecting, joining The Bottle Club in his youth. His love of all things historical included the Civil War, Arkansas history, Frank Lloyd Wright, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, the Arts and Crafts movement, the Craftsman Style, and collecting antiques, art, and antique cars. He had a passion for genealogy, tracing his family roots back to the 1500’s. David’s devotion to his family and friends was clear in his kindness, compassion, generosity, and loving nature. If someone needed help David would drop everything to be there for the people he loved. David was an extraordinary man, husband, fur baby daddy, uncle, son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend and is deeply missed by everyone who had the opportunity to know him.

He was preceded in death by his father, James Meek; grandparents, Homer and Sibyl Meek, of Alma, Arkansas; and Ted and Jo. T Sanders, of Marshall, Arkansas; and his cherished cat, Thai.

David is survived by his loving and devoted husband, David Peters, and beloved dog, Lucca; Mother, Rebecca Sanders Meek, of North Little Rock, Arkansas; Sister, Susan Meek, of Fayetteville, Arkansas; uncle and aunt, Ted and Nancy sanders, of Mountain Home; and numerous cousins, extended family, and friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the North Little Rock Animal Shelter, 1 Championship Dr., North Little Rock, Arkansas, 72116 or the Sherwood Animal Shelter, 6500 N. Hills Blvd, North Little Rock, Arkansas, 72120

A “Celebration of Life” will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2022, at 2:00 P.M., with a visitation held 30 minutes prior to David’s celebration, at 1:30 P.M., at Roller-Owens Funeral Home in North Little Rock, 5509 John F. Kennedy Blvd.

    Thank you, David Peters, for such a loving tribute to your husband. Be assured our love for him is extended to you, as you are the one who made his life complete. David Meek was a gentle, kind person who loved his family, his pets, and anyone who opened their heart to him. A man of few words, he epitomized Shakespeare’s advice, to “Give every man thy ear but few thy voice.”. To say we will miss him is an understatement. May he rest in peace, forever embraced by those who loved him.

    Peace of the Lord be with his family. I knew David in the 80’s in Little Rock. I was not a close friend, but I did know he was a good kind man.

    My heart is so broken that the world has lost one of the sweetest, kindest and such a beautiful soul. He was such a huge part of the best times of my life. Even thou we lost touch when he moved to Dallas, I thought of him often and still talked about him all the time. He was my room mate, my best friend and he was always there for me when I needed him. I love you David Meek. You will always be Amazing Dave to me❤️

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
