Clifford L. Meacham

February 18, 1945 — January 25, 2022

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of the Honorable Judge Clifford Leroy Meacham. Judge Meacham was born on February 18, 1945 and passed away peacefully in his home on January 25, 2022. He and his wife, Darlene (née Grasz) were longtime residents of Oak Park and raised their children, Tamara Meacham Chavez, Adam (Annina) Meacham, and Jonathan (Paige) Meacham in a home they lived in for almost 40 years. He was grandfather to Alexander Meacham Chavez (Alana Fligelman), Alexa Chavez (Edward Chapa), Vilija Meacham Chavez, Victoria Belle Meacham, Valentina Carlene Meacham, great-granddaughter, Aria Krystyne Chapa and is expecting another grandchild in May. A loving brother to Carol (James) Huotari and Cheri (Mark) Wolverton, he was preceded in death by his parents, Leroy Walter and Carol Lorraine (Peterson) Meacham. An army veteran, lawyer, United States Trustee, Circuit Court Judge, avid reader, Cubs fan, lover of the blues, and an excellent fisherman, he will be missed by all who knew him. He earned the esteem of his fellow man by rendering himself worthy of their esteem.

A memorial visitation will be held on February 26, 2022, 2:00pm-5:00pm at Kuratko-Nosek Funeral Home 2447 Des Plaines Avenue, North Riverside. Please plan on coming to share stories, eat, drink, and celebrate Cliff’s life.
