We played a lot of golf together. He rode in his purple Aston Martin golf cart , and would hit balls over my head as I walked . He always shared his travels and pictures. He was very kind , always engaged my wife because they were both Washington
High grads in Sf. Anyone who was lucky
enough to met Mel, was certainly fortunate. The last year ,or so ,was really tough , and I was so fortunate to spend the the time with Mel.
I will deeply miss him , as will all those he
Touched. So sad !

Mel was a dear friend and I will miss him. We met in the early 90s on a car rental shuttle bus in Washington D.C. We were both on our way to the same meeting. Our friendship was easy going and we always knew what to talk about. He brought my family and I to Livermore to work at his company. We did many things together: skiing, golf, NASCAR races, we went with a group to the Indy 500. He taught my kids how to ski. After I left the company we spoke by phone and occasional visits and always we picked up our conversation with ease. I enjoyed hearing his many stories. The last time I saw Mel was last fall. We went for a ride in his boat along the delta and made a plan to go to DCI this June. We spoke a few weeks ago and he was cheerful even knowing what was to come. Mel made a huge difference in my life. Thanks for being my friend and Godspeed out there in the cosmos.
