Thomas L. "Tommy" Meshell, Jr., age 50, of Lecompte, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, July 8, 2018, at his residence surrounded by his family.

Mr. Meshell was a member of Riverview Baptist Church, Alexandria. Tommy's greatest passion was life, and he enjoyed every moment because, he knew that it was a precious gift from God. His motivation to fight and survive was not to be selfish for himself, but to be able to live on for his family and friends, to continue being the life of the party, and make everyone laugh. He had an adventurous spirit and enjoyed getting things muddy, especially four wheelers. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him, but what he taught by his example will never be able to be replaced.

He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas L. Meshell, Sr.; niece, Jakelynn Ammons; aunt, Mary Louise "Sweet" Lindsey.

That was left to cherish his memory are his son, Dakota Meshell; mother, Ann Harrell and stepfather Jimmy; sister, Melissa Socia and husband, Pete; step- brother, David Harrell and wife, Camilla and their children Georgia, Jackson, and Jacob; uncles, Johnny, Amos, Paul, Steve, and Frank Meshell; aunt, Beverly Newton and a host of extended family to numerous to name.

Tommy is also survived by C.H. and Masel Socia, nephews, Zach Socia, and Blake Socia and wife, Jackie and their children, Audrey and Grady who were also a huge part of his life.

The Meshell-Harrell family would like to extend special thanks to Chassidy Juckett, Jamie Tassin, Brittany Ard, Megan Ducote and Jasmine Taylor of Serenity Hospice, his "sugar momma", Wanda Jones, Fred and Nancy Westmoreland, and his sister, Melissa for all of the love, care and support given during Tommy's illness.
