April 22, 1951 - May 7, 2022
Michael Meeks, a beloved member of the Fellowship of Friends, completed his task this morning in a bike accident at Apollo.
Michael was born on April 22, 1951 and turned 71 last month. He joined the Fellowship in London in June 1992, and lived at Apollo since 1995. He was a renowned musician, having played the trumpet with St. Martin’s in the Fields in London, the London Symphony Orchestra, and other ensembles. Since 1999 he served for years as principal trumpet for the Sacramento Choral Society and Sacramento Philharmonic Opera.
Michael’s gentle energy was a source of bright support to his friends, our school, and Robert. A few days ago, at dinner with Robert, having seen Michael the week before for a birthday dinner, Robert acknowledged that every day was Michael’s birthday.
We thank thee.

Heard melodies are sweet
But those unheard are sweeter.
