Dave Meadows was a quiet, simple, no-frills kind of guy who has left a wonderful impact on many people. He absolutely loved his annual trips to Ogunquit, Maine to take in the beauty of its area, walks along the Marginal Way, its beautiful beach and cold water along with the great and familiar spots to take in a great meal and something to drink. Simple pleasures are what made his heart smile.
He was also an avid and loyal New England sports enthusiast and was quite vocal when watching his beloved Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins. It was all in good fun but there were times one might think he was a sideline coach with all his commentary to the players.
Dave lost his two-year battle with cancer on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 in Lahey Clinic. He was 71.
David J. Meadows was born on January 23, 1950 in Arlington a son of the late Harry and Catherine (Sliney) Meadows. He was a graduate of Arlington High School and then went on to working in the electrical field.
