David C. Gleason II

MERIDIAN — Services for David C. Gleason II will be held today, Tuesday, at 11 a.m. at St. Patrick Catholic Church with Father Frank Cosgrove officiating.  All friends are welcome to share the celebration of his life. Robert Barham Family Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.

    Mr. Gleason, age 97, of Meridian, died Friday, September 20, 2013 in Jackson.  A lifelong devoted parishioner of St. Patrick Catholic Church, he made a promise to the Lord during WW2 that if he survived he would attend daily Mass. That promise was honored to the very end of his 97 years of service to church, country, friends and family.  He was simply a lovely man and a vigorous role model for his children.     

    Survivors include his widow, Dorothy Yochim Gleason; children: David C. Gleason III, Mary Frances Gleason, Patrick M. Gleason and Daniel L. Gleason; 13 grandchildren; and four great grandchildren.                         

    He was preceded in death by wives, Mary Frances Stroble Gleason and Althea Nicovich Gleason; and son, Edward J. Gleason.                              

    Family and friends may sign the online guestbook at
