After retiring from the Air Force, he went to work at the U.S. Department of State in Washington DC. He was an active member of the Pleiku Air Base Association serving as the treasurer and reunion planner for many years.  Planning the annual reunion for the Pleiku Viet Nam members was of a labor of love.  He was the former secretary of the Ohio Valley Street Survivors Car Club.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Meighen, mother-in-law, Florence Raymond, and father-in-law, Tony Raymond.

He is survived by the love of his life and high school sweetheart, his wife, Roberta Raymond; one son, Jeff (Christina) Meighen; and the second love of his life, his granddaughter, Cecelia (Cece) Meighen.

Friends will be received on Saturday, November 11, 2017 from 4-8 pm and on Sunday, November 12, 2017 from 11 am until time of service at 1 pm at the Altmeyer Funeral Home, 1400 Eoff Street, Wheeling. Interment will be at the convenience of the family.

Roberta, We know Tim is resting easier at this time. His pain and suffering gone. He fought a valiant battle. He was a dear friend to so many. To me he was a dependable sincere friend. He is missed by all of us.

Dear Roberta and Family,
I was so sad to hear about Tim’s death. I have so many wonderful memories of the great times that we all shared (sitting on the beach with fog so thick you could not see the water, eating meals together…) and I will always remember his love for his family. I am so sorry that I will not be able to attend Tim’s funeral and hope that if it is allowed, can attend the service that will be held at Arlington’s National Cemetery. My heart goes out to you and you are all in my thoughts.

Betty
