147 DUKE OF GLOUCESTER ST
Annapolis, MD
RUDASILL, Mr. Meade Harrison, 87, of Annapolis, Md., died Saturday, June 26, 2021, from head and neck skin cancer.

Born September 24, 1933 in Richmond, Va., the second son of Charles and Aline (Beville) Rudasill, he graduated Thomas Jefferson High School, earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute (VPI) and married his longtime sweetheart, Sue Knapp Rudasill, on September 22, 1956. He served in the Army and worked 40 years at GE Aircraft Engines in Engineering and Sales. An avid outdoorsman, he enjoyed and introduced his kids and grandkids to camping, hiking, skiing, hunting and fishing.

He is survived by his wife, Sue; deceased older brother's wife, Betty; son, Meade Jr. (Patti); daughter, Anne (Bill); grandchildren, Brad, Becky, Candi, Todd, Katie, Amanda; and eight great-grandkids.

He was a strong believer in his faith and community. He served on countless committees to improve Ginger Cove. He cared deeply for his bride of 64 years and was grateful for a rich extended family - dear friends in Annapolis, residents and staff and at Ginger Cove, his Saturday morning bible study group and folks at St. Andrew's Anglican Church. He liked to be "in the loop" and kept most folks laughing. God knows best and thought it was time for him to come home, knowing he did a job well done for his family and community.

A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, July 24, at 2 p.m. in Friendship Hall at the Ginger Cove, 4000 River Crescent Drive, Annapolis, Md.

Mead and his wife Sue were "down the street" neighbors of ours in Annapolis Landing. We laughed one time when Mead brought his box of wine to a community happy hour. Most people brought a bottle. He was a fun guy. Our condolences to his family and friends.

Meade will never be forgotten, an extraordinary man who experienced life at the fullest, loved the arts, loved the outdoors, excelled in his profession as a Mechanical Engineer at GE Jet Engines and moved to marketing those engines built for our Navy Jet planes. He was dedicated to his Christian religion and worshiped with his wife and family. Meade was a dear friend for the past 30 years, we snow skied, upland hunted, waterfowl hunted, skeet shot recreation-ally fished, boated, water skied, dined together and enjoyed the arts. We worshiped together. Meade loved dogs, mostly good Field English Springer Spaniels. Mostly we laughed together. I loved him like a brother and will never forget him.
