Marvin Lee Meints

EDMOND — Marvin Lee Meints

Marvin "Mick" Meints, 85, was born in April 6, 1927 in Beatrice, Neb. His parents were Thomas and Minnie Jobman Meints, and Mick grew up with two brother, Orvin and Delmar, and one sister, Mildred, in Beatrice. When Mick died on October 5, 2012 he was the last surviving member of his immediate family.

Mick served for a short time in the Navy at the end of WWII but the majority of his military service occurred during the Korean conflict where he headed a demolition unit. His unit was responsible for clearing mine fields in front of tanks and destroying enemy bunkers. Mick was awarded many medals for his service including the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, and the Korean Service Medal with four Bronze Service Stars.

On March 11, 1951 he married Billie Poulignot. They became the parents of three children; Kathy, Mike, and Tom. He was especially proud of his children and delighted in the seven grandchildren that followed.

Much of Mick’s adult life was spent in Colorado where he was employed by Safeway Stores, Inc. But most important to Mick, he was a craftsman and he used his skills to remodel houses and to built furniture. He landscaped and he gardened. He loved tractors and always had at least one around to help him. From his German ancestors he inherited a strong work ethic and continued to work his whole life.

The family that remembers Mick are his wife Billie of Edmond; his Oklahoma family Kathy Meints Brown and her son Thomas, his Colorado family, Michael A. Meints and his wife Marcia, and their children, Sam and Gleicy, Zachary, Max, and Sophie; and his Washington family, Thomas J. Meints, his wife Jo, and their children, Michael and Rosemary, and Chelsea.

Inurnment will be 11 a.m. October 29, 2012 at the Fort Logan National Cemetery in Colorado.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.
