August 25, 1953 - January 11, 2019
The man, the myth, the legend, Elmer Meckes, has passed away. He was a mere 65 years old. Upon illness, he resided at The Gardens at Wyoming Valley in Wilkes Barre.
Born in Reeders on August 25, 1953, and son of the late Russell and Loyes Strausser Meckes, after too many miles on the road to count Elmer retired as an independent truck driver. Beyond his loving family, no one meant more to him than his beloved, Edith.
He is survived by Edith Balmoos; siblings, Albert Meckes of Walnutport and Virginia Ford, both of Reeders; and many nieces and nephews who adored their ‘Uncle E.’
His brothers, Albert and Theodore Meckes, also preceded him in death.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
