Obituary of John Andrew Meiners JR.

John “Lonnie” Andrew Meiners, Jr. was born June 21st, 1946 in New Orleans, LA and passed away November 23rd, 2021 in Houston, TX. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Diane Meiners and sister, Janet Hovey. He is survived by his wife Patti, sons Jime Meiners and wife Monica, Sean Holman, Brent Holman and wife Alyssa, grandchildren Taylor, Alexandra, and Kayleb Meiners, Cameron Holman, and Abbey Holman, sister Jean Cervantes and husband George, brother-in-law Eugene Hovey, many nieces, nephews and cousins as well as an immeasurable number of friends. John and his family were longtime residents of La Porte and more recently Houston, but much of the last twenty-five years of his life was spent in Baytown performing at the Baytown Little Theater. John was a very talented playwright, singer, and actor who was honored to have his play Galveston Wind performed twice in Baytown and most recently in Galveston itself which was truly a “dream come true” for him. His plays have been performed all over the United States and one of his short stories was recently published in England. John retired from the Department of Human Services and discovered his passion for writing. One of the highlights of his life was seeing one of his plays “come to life.” John performed at other area theaters, but as Life Time members of Baytown Little Theater, John and his wife Patti always considered BLT their theatrical home. He was a member of The Dramatist Guild of America, Scriptwriters Houston and La Porte Community Church where he was a member of the choir and wrote the puppet scripts for the church’s puppet ministry. Services will be this coming Tuesday, November 30th at 2:00 PM at La Porte Community Church, 202 S. 1st Street, La Porte, TX. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to La Porte Community Church or Baytown Little Theater.
