Mr. Meadows was born July 30, 1938 in Robertson County to the late Earl and Annie Belle Savage Meadows. He graduated from Greenbrier High School in 1957. He went all twelve years of school without missing a day and received an award for twelve years of perfect attendance. Mr. Meadows grew up with a passion for softball, and he always played in the Greenbrier leagues. Until 2015, he was a lifelong member of Greenbrier First Baptist Church, where he served as a deacon and had eight years of perfect attendance in Sunday School. Mr. Meadows served on the committee for the Robertson County Baptist Association that started up associational sports. He then coached the girls softball and the boys basketball teams at Greenbrier First Baptist Church for the Associational League. Mr. Meadows enjoyed his work in the maintenance department at Nashville Memorial Hospital that later became Skyline Medical Center from where he retired. After his retirement, he went to work at Robertson County Funeral Home in housekeeping. His then favorite hobbies became vacuuming and telling stories of all his hospital working adventures. In 2015, he moved his church membership to Solid Rock Baptist Church in Greenbrier. He was an avid fan of the Greenbrier Bobcats and the Tennessee Vols. He had a great love for camping, and for all that knew him best knows that he had a great love for talking and having conversations with his friends and family. He never met a stranger and had a great love for all his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Meadows was preceded in death by his sister: Peggy Ann Stall. In November of this year, he would have been married 60 years to the love of his life, Peggy Ann Moore Meadows, who he leaves to survive him.
