Timothy Lee Meives, formerly of Peru, passed away peacefully at Parkridge Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, at the age of 56.

Tim was born Dec. 8, 1963 to his parents, Earnest L. Meives and Gertrude (Rose) Tolley Meives. He grew up in Peru, lived in Cromwell, Huntertown, and Ft. Wayne before settling down in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Peru High School in 1982.

On May 31, 2003, Tim married the love of his life, Karen Fraley.

Tim was a very kind and compassionate person. He loved life, family, and traveling. He was always ready for an adventure. His main passion was his love for Jehovah God. He was a faithful servant his entire life and knew he would be in Jehovah’s memory if he should die in this old world. He also knew that he would be asleep and would soon be resurrected to a perfect life here on a paradise earth. He was a member of the Chattanooga, Tennessee congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

He will lovingly be remembered by his wife, Karen; her sons, Paul and Brent; and grandchildren. His mother, Rose Meives; his four brothers, Stephen (Brandi) Meives of New Palestine, Indiana, Barack (Heather) Meives of Crawfordville, Florida, Caleb Meives of Peru, and Micah (Christine) Meives of Peru; his three sisters, Rachel (Rich) Moore of Spokane, Washington, Rebekah (James) Crace of Warsaw, Indiana, and Tabitha Wolfe of Indianapolis, Indiana. He also had several uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, his father, Earnest Meives, and niece, Brooke Meives.

He is entrusted to Lane Funeral Home in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Due to current circumstances, there will be a private service held on Zoom for family. However, in the coming months, there may be a memorial service.
