David Alan Mealer

November 10, 1953 — February 12, 2024


David Alan Mealer, a beloved member of his community and a devoted family man, peacefully passed away on February 12, 2024, in Springfield, TN. Born on November 10, 1953, in Nashville, TN to the proud parents Dennis and Christine Mealer, David's life was filled with joy, love, and numerous accomplishments.

David led a successful career as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), dedicating many years to his profession. His expertise in the field earned him the respect and admiration of his colleagues and clients alike. With his sharp mind and meticulous nature, David made significant contributions to the financial landscape.

Outside of work, David had a deep appreciation for life's simple pleasures. He found solace in the tranquility of reading and enjoyed watching TV programs that piqued his intellectual curiosity. One could often find him exploring the countryside as he embarked on leisurely drives with a sense of wonder and awe.

David's favorite memories were those spent with his loved ones. Countless trips to the beach brought him immense happiness and created cherished moments that will forever be held dear by those who had the opportunity to share them with him.

Graduating with a Bachelor's Degree was one of David's proudest accomplishments. His dedication to education served as an inspiration to all who knew him. Throughout his life, he embraced learning as a lifelong pursuit.

Married for an incredible 47 years, David and his beloved wife, Cindy, built a strong foundation for their family. Together they experienced the joys and challenges that come with raising two wonderful sons. Joel Mealer was tragically lost too soon but will always remain in our hearts. Their unyielding love guided them through life's hurdles and created a tight-knit bond that nothing could break.

David's legacy lives on through his cherished son Ben Mealer, daughter-in-law Tonya Newton, three adoring grandchildren - Austin, Brayden, and Colton - and a wide circle of extended family and friends. He was a doting father, treasuring every moment spent with his son and delighting in the happiness they shared as a family.

A man of unwavering kindness, love, strength, and intelligence, David touched the lives of all who had the honor of knowing him. His warm smile and gentle nature brought comfort to those around him. David had an uncanny ability to make others feel valued and important, offering support even in the most challenging times.
