David was born on February 25, 1942 in Fort Atkinson the son of Victor and Venice (Meracle) Meech. He grew up on the family farm and graduated from Palmyra High School. David was blessed with three children, Mellanie, Kevin, and Craig. He was a farmer for the majority of his working career but also worked for several years at the Carnation Company in both the Oconomowoc and Jefferson plants. David was the President and Caretaker for the Pleasant Valley Cemetery Association. He devoted countless hours over the years and took pride in making sure the cemetery was organized and well maintained. For leisure, David enjoyed going in to town, whether it was Dousman or Palmyra to have lunch and chat with the locals. He also enjoyed popping in to his children’s homes for a meal. Above all else in his life was his love for his children and grandchildren. He was a proud Grandpa and happiest when surrounded by his family. David was a good man and he will be dearly missed.
