Obituary of David Meade


David E.

Age 68, passed away on Saturday, July 29, 2017, surrounded by family and friends after a short but courageous battle with cancer. David grew up in Beltzhoover, the eldest of five children of the late William and Dorothy (Crux) Meade. David was the beloved husband of 40 years to Kathleen (Kelly) Meade; loving father of Erin; brother of Paul (JoAnne), William (Maureen), Anita Sidun (Russ), and the late Timothy Meade.  He is also survived by several nieces and nephews and many friends. David was a lifelong athlete, a dedicated basketball and baseball player in his younger years who found a love for golf in his forties. He was a longtime member of Longue Vue Club, where he spent many wonderful hours with dear friends fine-tuning his game. David was a Steelers season ticket holder for decades, often regaling friends and family with his recollection of the feeling in Three Rivers following the Immaculate Reception. A CPA by training, David transitioned to a career in sales, work for which he was well suited and enjoyed immensely. David’s family and friends will remember his loyalty, honesty, good humor, and generosity. Friends received at McCabe Bros., Inc. Funeral Home, 6214 Walnut Street, Shadyside on Tuesday and Wednesday, 2-4 and 6-8 pm, where funeral will commence on Thursday at 9 am, followed by Mass of Christian Burial in Sacred Heart Church at 10 am.
