Dysen Meador

Dysen Meador, age 19, went to be with our Lord on September 2, 2022. Dysen was born on October 24th, 2002, in Lake Jackson, Texas. Dysen is survived by his Father Derik Meador and wife Ria Meador and Mother Tara Porfirio, Sisters Madeline Porfirio and Lexi Meador, Brothers Payton Meador and Lucas Meador. He is also survived by his paternal Grandparents Joel and Belinda Meador and maternal Grandparents Kevin and Sybil McElyea and so many other family members – Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and many special friends.

Despite Dysen’s physical challenges, even through major surgeries, illnesses or just normal daily routines, he was an exceptional person who never complained and impacted many people with his positive attitude and continuous smile. Dysen was truly a “Child of God” who taught us all so many lessons in life.

Dysen proudly graduated from Clear Lake High School in May 2021. After learning job work skills from Clear Lake, he was invited to start a new job working for the Stay Fresh with Peanut company located in Clear Lake. He was so excited and looked so forward to this new adventure.

Dysen had a special passion for sports and clearly was a loyal fan to many teams. He was the biggest fan for all of the Clear Lake High School teams – baseball, football, softball, volleyball, soccer and basketball. College teams he supported with all his heart was UT, UTSA, LSU and UH. His passion extended also to the Houston Astros, Texans, Rockets, Dynamo and also was a NASCAR fan through and through. He loved the outdoors, especially fishing with family and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Dysen on Saturday, September 24th, 2022, from 3PM to 5:30PM at the Bay Oaks Country Club, 14545 Bay Oaks Blvd., Houston, TX 77059. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Stay Fresh with Peanut Company, 930 Gemini St, Houston, TX  77058, or your favorite charity would be appreciated.

  12. I had the pleasure of being Dysen’s bus monitor, for the mornings, during his senior year of high school. I also happened to be the monitor for his HEARTS program that went off campus every day. This meant that I spent 4-5 hours with him a day! This time allowed me to grow a bond with him. I loved sparking a conversation with him as he always had jokes to say that would crack me up. He was definitely a character! I went to UTSA for some of my college career and would wear UTSA t-shirts some days, which Dysen loved! He would always tell me the softball, or football score the morning after they played, and most of the time I didn’t even know they had a game, lol! He was for sure a bigger fan than me! I will never forget the kind, sweet, funny boy he was. We have many funny memories, that’s for sure! Sometimes when I would be moving a bit too slow to unload him from the bus, he would honk his little wheelchair horn at me. He knew it would make me and my bus driver laugh, and he would be laughing too! I will definitely miss him and his bright personality. I know he was loved by many. My prayers go out to everyone who knew and loved him. WE LOVE YOU DYSEN! <3

  15. As time has gone on I just miss you more. There’s a huge hole in my heart that will never heal. I miss you so much. You were such an inspiration to so many and certainly to me. You made me a better person and made me feel guilty for ever feeling sorry for myself. I miss your phone calls talking about the games. And I sure miss watching them with you. And I miss you asking me when our team was down “Poppy can we come back?” I think of you everyday. Thank you God for letting us have your Angel for the time we did. Until we join again. Love you Baby.
