Gayron was born June 13, 1951 in Franklin, Georgia to Delmas and Cynthia Meeks. He was raised in Arcadia, Florida on a ranch with his late brother Quentin Meeks, and his three sisters, Tincie Shively (Husband Larry), Diana Black (Late husband Ray), and Janice Arena (Late husband Joe). Gayron always loved the outdoors, working with his father on the ranch, as well as hunting and fishing with his family.
He began studying the Bible and became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses as a young man. He met the love of his life, Marie de la Osa. They later married on October 2, 1971. Their family grew with the birth of their first and only child, Kimberlea. Gayron became an amazing father, supporting the family for many years as an Electrical Inspector for both DeSoto and Charlotte counties.
Of his many special qualities, Gayron was known for his open and friendly nature, and his memorable sense of humor. He loved to make people laugh. And his easy smile and love for others made him approachable to young and old alike. With just a little encouragement, Gayron would share entertaining stories of life on a ranch: rounding up cattle, riding horses, or catching alligators with his bare hands.
His positive spirit and friendship toward all will be deeply missed. He looked forward to the day he is given his eternal reward of perfect health and everlasting life on earth, from his God Jehovah. (Rev 21:4 and Isaiah 33:24)
Gayron leaves behind his wife Marie, daughter Kimberlea, son-in-law Dave, his three sisters and numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends.
