Meckley, Alan Wayne

Alan Wayne Meckley, age 43 passed away on March, 21st, 2021, unexpectedly due to an ATV accident. As a lifelong resident of Dodgeville, WI, Alan was born on April 22nd, 1977 to William and Gynith Meckley. He graduated from Dodgeville High School in 1995. Alan met and dated in 2012 and married the love of his life, Ashley Groom on June 2nd, 2018.

Alan was employed at Maple Leaf in Verona, WI as a landscaper, lawn care maintenance and snow removal person. Alan enjoyed life such as cruising, and spending time with family and friends. He loved his family, his dog Gunner, going fishing, having campfires (all we had to do was hint at a fire and he'd get a good one going), and taking family vacations. On his off time, he loved to go visit friends, and hang out to talk about old times and tell jokes, and he loved speed among other activities. Alan was the most outspoken and friendly person and with his unique smile and laugh that lit up any room, he will never be forgotten.

Alan and I were a matched set. We both had the same mannerisms. He was my life, my love, and my world. He was my happy.

You could always count on Alan to say something that would make you laugh. Alan loved sitting in his car listening to his music playing. He loved his sweets, saying he would have just one and then he couldn't stop. Alan and I were a matched set. We both had the same mannerisms. He was my life, my love, and my world. He was my happy.
