STEVENSVILLE – Richard Eldon “Dickie” Meckler died of natural causes at his home in Stevensville on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014. He was 58. Dickie grew up in Stevensville, where he attended Stevensville schools grades 1-12. He liked the sport of wrestling in high school and did quite well, going to state tournaments two years in a row. After high school graduation, Dickie enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1973 and was honorably discharged in 1977. After following the construction trade for several years in the Northwest, Dickie settled down in the beautiful Bitterroot valley, which he always considered home, and could pursue his passion of hunting and fishing. Dickie was born June 5, 1955, to Richard and Joyce Meckler, who preceded him in death several years ago. He is survived by his two daughters, Frannie and Jeanie of Washington state; brothers, Shannon and Trent of Missoula; sister, Tami of Helena; and several grandchildren, cousins, uncles and friends. Dickie will be missed by those who knew him. Everbody knew he had the biggest heart in the valley and would do anything to help those he could. Rest in peace. A memorial to celebrate Dickie’s life will be held at a later date to be announced

Sorry to hear of of this sad news. Dick and family were a big part of my life back in the day. We grew up together... school, hunting, fishing, camping. We even learned to drive at the same time on the Farmall and the old white Ford pickup. A lot of good times and a lot of good memories. My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time.
