My name is Chet Meeks. I am a 32 year old sociologist. I started this blog so that I can write about the things that interest me. I hope you enjoy it.

Chet Meeks Memorial Fund

A memorial fund has been established at the University of Wyoming in honor of Chet's life and dedication to academia. This is a project that gave Chet renewed vigor in his last few weeks and we had hoped to get it ready before he left us. He asked that the fund be used for summer research funding for graduate students in sociology. Unfortunately, Chet never got to see the scholarship in place. But he knew we would finish the job – and we are more determined than ever to make the Chet Meeks Memorial Fund a substantial legacy in his honor.

If you would like to contribute to the Fund, please contact Brett Walter at

Chet Meeks (April 26, 1973 - January 11, 2008)

A Celebration of the Life of Chet Meeks was held January 19 at the First Existentialist Congregation of Atlanta. A celebration also was held at Northern Illinois University on January 25. These celebrations brought together many of Chet's family, friends and colleagues to remember Chet and to tell our stories of having shared in his remarkable, loving and accomplished life.

On August 9, 2008, a service will be held in Rawlins, Wyoming. Ace, Heidi, Asa and Andrea heartily welcome you to be with them as they mark Chet's passing at Lake Marie. Further information will be posted as the event gets closer. Ace & Heidi would like for those planning to come to Wyoming to let them know ASAP and they will try to reserve a block of motel rooms at a discounted rate. Their email address and phone number for anyone who might like to reach them: and 307-324-3935.

As noted in Andy's post below, documents, pictures, links and other information about Chet are posted and available for download at Andy's Web site.

Please remember to financially support the Chet Meeks Memorial Fund, an important long-range initiative of Chet's legacy! Please see information above.

As Chet's family and friends continue to mourn our loss and remember his life, "Chet the Scribe" will continue as a place for remembrances, stories and condolences.

We love and miss Chet always.
