March 14, 1934 - June 15, 2013

In loving memory of Kenneth M. Meadow "Cork." Ken was born on March 14, 1934 in Ute, Iowa to Cecil and Delores Meadows. He was 79 years old when he passed away peacefully at his home in San Antonio, Texas on June 15, 2013.

Ken served 23 years in the United States Air Force, from 1952 to 1975, with tours in Korea & Vietnam and retired as a Master Sergeant. After his military service he was an OTR truck driver for 25 years retiring in 2001.

Ken was an awesome person--a wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather, very dear-to-our-hearts brother, a kind and caring uncle and beloved friend.

Survivors include his children, daughter and son-in-law Denise & James Parker, son and daughter-in-law Keith & Cindy Meadows, daughter and son-in-law Ramona & Michael Inglehart, and son Ross Meadows; his siblings, twin sister Kay Gregerson, brothers and sisters-in-law Roinald & Eileen Meadows, Dennis & Angie Meadows, Timothy Meadows, and Philip & Nancy Meadows, 12 grandchildren (Kalika, Sean, Ashley, Miko, Kenny, Samantha, Jackie, Seth, Josh, Aden, Damon & Chelsea), 6 great grandchildren (Daniel, Marik, Logun, Malachi, Marshall & Jax), and many nieces and nephews.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents and his daughter, Linda K. Curry. We all miss you terribly, but also know that you will always be with us. "Those we love remain with us, for Love itself lives on. Cherished memories never fade because one Loved is gone. Those we Love can never be more than a thought apart, for as long as there's a memory they live on in our heart..." God Bless You.

A memorial and visitation will be held at Vaughan Funeral Home, 319 E. San Antonio Street, Boerne, Texas on Thursday, June 27, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A military service will take place at Ft. Sam Houston on Friday, June 28, 2013 at 10:15 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to St. Jude Children's Reasearch Hospital.
