Brooks Powell Meek

Brooks Powell Meek

In loving remembrance of Brooks Powell Meek, whose spirit transcended this world into eternity on April 15th, 2017. Brooks was born on November 16, 1995 in Monroe, Louisiana to Angie Cutler and David Meek.

He is preceded in death by grandfathers; Dr. Otis Cutler, Dr. Gary Meek, Jim Gustison, and his uncle; Otis Cutler, II. He is survived by his parents; stepmother, Jeanne Meek; sister, Ellen Margaret Meek; grandmothers, Peggy Gustison and Julia Meek. He is also survived by uncles, Milton Cutler (Gina), Chris Cutler (Kelly), and Gregory Meek. In addition to his uncles, he is survived by cousins, Alex Cutler, Robert Cutler, Adam Meek. Brooks is also survived by his very special loving friend, Claudia Pelchat Stone. As well as a host of extended family and friends.

Brooks began his musical career with a toy guitar at the age of 5. By second grade, he was playing cello at Benton County School of the Arts. He continued with the cello, and at the age of 12, started formal guitar lessons with Jason Truby. Brooks also played trumpet for the marching band at LRCA. As a young adult, this past year, he joined the band Centari. He had become a singer/songwriter and his music will continue on with the band.
As a Scout, Brooks was ignited by his love of the outdoors. He achieved one of the highest honors of Scouts, the Arrow of Light. Brooks was also an avid martial artist and a wrestler, which all lead to a State Championship in wrestling for LRCA.
Brooks will be remembered for his love of Claudia, his music, kayaking, backpacking, fishing, and all things to do with nature.

A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, April 23rd, at 2:30 pm, followed by a reception, all at Ruebel Funeral Home, 6313 West Markham St, Little Rock, Arkansas. Memorials may be made to the Thea Foundation, 401 North Main Street, North Little Rock, Arkansas 72114, in memory of Brooks.

"Your family has been heavy on my heart. I am thinking of all the adventures that our boys have had together. It seems like yesterday they set out on the adventure of a lifetime. They grew so much in that very short time. They learned much about themselves and each other, and they learned that the road always leads you back home. Joseph enjoyed exploring music with Brooks, and he spoke often of how talented he is. I am thankful for the time we had to watch them grow and perform together, but I am most thankful that they remained friends above all else. Brooks will remain in my heart, as will the music and memories. You all are in my prayers and heart.

"I was so shocked and saddened to learn of the loss of your precious son and my former student. With class composite pictures recently re-hung in the halls at the high school at Little Rock Christian, I made it a point this morning to hunt down the class of 2014. Brooks's beautiful smile made him easy to find among the dozens of faces. I feel blessed that our paths crossed and that I will see him again soon. Sending hugs to your family."

"Brooks reminded me of when I was his age. I was so excited to be in a band. Everything had to be right. I asked Brooks to open for me April 14th. He said he had a band. I said "Even Better". Two weeks before the show he text me and said "Next Friday right?". "Yes". He said "We are getting excited". I said "Me Too!". It was a perfect show. The next day I heard the news. I feel so much grief. I don't understand why this happened. I cry and hurt. I hurt for your loss. I will never forget him. Thank y'all (Angie, David, & Jeanne) for being there and supporting him at our show. If I can do anything; I am here. My condolences."

"So very sorry for the tragic loss of your young son.
We may wonder why this tragedy was allowed to happen.
Jesus well knew the Bible statement: "Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all" [Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that
sometimes bad things just happen.
The Revelation 21:3,4 states that "death will be no more and pain
will be no more, the former things will have passed away"
Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his son Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today. John 5:28,29 promises "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life...."
You can find much Bible-based comfort on jw.org
