PRINCETON — The Rev. Larry C. Meadows, 75, of Princeton, passed away Friday, Nov. 18, 2022 at his home.
He was born May 2, 1947 in Princeton to Paul and Loretta (Tipton) Meadows. He got his first car at the age of 12 and was a mechanic ever since. He owned and operated Meadows Sunoco Gas and Service Station, which was the last full service station around.
He also served more than 30 years as a minister, pastoring one church for 24 years. Both serving the Lord and being a mechanic led to a full life. Larry was a member of Princeton Holiness Tabernacle and for the last few years he ministered directly from his front porch. Larry was a very caring and loving father and always had a home for stray animals. He will be greatly missed.

Meadows is survived by his sons, Larry Wayne Meadows (Lee Anne) of Fort Branch and John Wayne Meadows of Evansville; grandchildren, Meagan, Candyce, Jocelyn, Madeline, Madison, Magnus, and Jessi; great-grandchild, Scarlett; brothers, Kerry Meadows and Gary Meadows; sisters, Terry Meadows, Mary Key, Julie Kendall, and Amy Fugate; several in-laws, nieces and nephews, his best friend, Charlie McGillem; and his beloved church family.
