After 33+ years James retired from General Motors. James truly lived life to the fullest through Simple Pleasures like going to NASCAR races playing Horseshoes and Poker. He threw the best parties and started a family tradition of an annual trip home, to Mammoth Spring Arkansas, to float down the Spring River. James had a love of Elvis and Merle Haggard and passed his love of music on to his children and grandchildren. James married Shirley and they formed one badass version of "The Brady Bunch". James was an ordinary guy but to his children and grandchildren he was the world. He gave the best nicknames, he will be missed daily and we are all better for having known him. James was preceded in death by his daddy Theodore Roosevelt Meeker his mommy Ophelia Mae (Lassiter) Meeker, his sister Tommie Hatfield, his brother Bill Meeker, his son-in-law Jeremy "Gump" and his best friend "The Captain". Survivors include his wife Shirley, Sons; Randy, Rick and Rock and daughters Rhonda, Rhenea and his favorite Jamie Kay. 13 grandchildren; Eddie Eugene, Badleg, Knucklehead, Main Man, Jake The Snake, Zeke, Beavis, Crawdad, Sissy, Girlie, Peaches, Roadrunner and Speed bump. 11 Great grandbabies; Lugnut, Peanut, Firecracker, Bebee, Popsicle Honey bun, Princess, Grasshopper, Windy, Lennon, The Rocket, Cade and Kaylee
