Melvin was always so loving and loved to visit and laugh. Last visit I had with him was in 2018 at Aunt Anna’s birthday party. His hug was warm and his smile was wide, and we had an awesome visit. He is greatly missed and will be warmly remembered for his love for life and for everyone. Sending Sue, Byron, Judy, and all family members my greatest love and prayers as you keep Melvin’s memory alive in your hearts.

I have many good memories of growing up with Mel. He was a fun loving guy and did most everything,with all his heart.We played a lot of ice hockey and floor hockey games,together. We took a trip down to Scio Oregon, in the early 70’s , to work for Mel’s Uncle Ben. Mel loved to sing and I remember we sang most of the way to Scio and back. I will miss him, his voice ,and his cheerful teasing disposition.

I mostly remember Mel from years ago as a sweet, young, blonde-haired boy with a ready smile. When we reconnected recently, he still had that smile and made me feel like he was genuinely happy to see me. I wish he was here. Much love and prayers to his family. - from his cousin Marlys
