Timothy John Meehan

Timothy John Meehan of Garrison died on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, at his residence. He was 56.

A native of Goshen, NY, Mr. Meehan was the founder and president of AAKOP LLC., an international investment company based in Purchase, NY, that specialized in precious and base metals. He graduated from the College of the Holy Cross (1978) in Worcester, Mass.

Mr. Meehan is survived by his wife of 32 years, Ninfa Meehan, née Celis; two sons, Andrew of Washington, DC, and Elliot of New York City; and a daughter, Kimberly of Garrison. He is also survived by his mother, Jeanne R. Meehan of Goshen; four siblings, Avice of New York City; Moira of Boston, Mass., Terence of New York City, and Rebecca Holmes of Cheam, England, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, John F. Meehan.

Mr. Meehan was an avid sportsman, beginning with his days as a varsity athlete at Goshen Central High School. An enthusiastic skier and tennis player, he loved nothing more than a heavy-duty workout at the gym on a Saturday morning followed by a laughter-filled round of golf with good friends and one or more of his sons. Mr. Meehan was a member of the Powelton Club in Newburgh, and the Tamarack Preserve in Millbrook.

Mr. Meehan shared generously with family and friends alike and was known for his ability to locate fine chocolate, vintage wine and other gourmet delights—although he rarely partook of these himself.

Noted for his quick wit and nimble mind, Mr. Meehan was nonetheless fierce in debate and was widely read in American history and economic policy.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held Monday, February 11, 2013, at Our Lady of Loretto Church, 24 Fair Street, Cold Spring, NY 10516. Interment followed in the Cold Spring Cemetery.

Arrangements were under the direction of the Clinton Funeral Home, Cold Spring, NY.
