This site is dedicated to the loving memory of Meiko Anthony Locksley. Meiko, son of Mike and Kia Locksley tragically passed away September 3, 2017 at the tender age of 25.

Meiko Anthony Locksley was taken from us on Sunday, September 3, 2017 in Columbia Maryland.

Meiko lived in Columbia for three years after his family relocated to the University of Maryland for the second time.

Meiko attended primary schools in Maryland, Florida, Illinois and New Mexico. He graduated from La Cueva High School in New Mexico in 2009 and then entered Youngstown State University where he engaged in his first love, football. Meiko also played football at Iowa Western, Lackawana College, New Mexico University and Towson University.

Meiko was a mild-mannered, exceptionally bright, and talented young man, reading at age 4. He learned to play the piano at an early age and when he was six or seven years old spontaneously began to play Christmas carols on a store piano at Costco. Needless to say, the customers were entranced along with his G-Mom. He also played piano at his uncle's wedding at the age of 8.

Meiko was also a talented actor. In addition to commercial assignments and movie parts, he performed at the Shakespeare Theatre in the Greek Tragedy Oedipus. Meiko’s favorite scripture was Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”.

Meiko is survived by his loving parents Michael and Kia Locksley, brothers Michael and Kai and sister Kori as well as grandparents Charles and Burnette Blandford, Venita Locksley, Michael Locksley (Marilyn) and great grandmother, Ruth Berry Dyson. Meiko is also survived by loving aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and nephews, friends who loved him as well as god parents, Tammy Curry and Marcellus Campbell.

'They Don't Know Why'

He enjoys learning
They don't know why

He likes to real a lot of books
They don't know why

He has goals in life
They don't know why

He doesn't cheat
They don't know why

He doesn't steal
They don't know why

He likes to watch musicals
They don't know why

He's not the African-American man they stereotype him to be
That Is Why

~ By Meiko Locksley

*Thanks to the many family members and friends who offered condolences and worked tirelessly to send Meiko home in the most spectacular way!

Love truly,

The Locksley Family

I'm so sorry for you'll loss! I wouldn't wish this on any parent, to bury their child before themselves. May GOD watch over the family from the days to come. Once everyone is gone, and you know your baby home going was exactly what you wanted it to be. That's when it gets hard, but just remember to call on the Lord and he will help you to get through....... He's doing it for me and he can do it for YOU! Love You'll and GOD BLESS.......
