Melvin was a friend of mine through South Jr High and Kalamazoo Central. He was born 1 week before me. We lost touch but I am saddened by his death
Mel had a HUGE heart and a always a cheerful smile on his face. That was especially evident when his grandson, Henry, referred to Elmo as "Melmo". He will be missed greatly!
Will never forget the first time I met Mel, it was the day he my sister Cece. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and friend.
He will always be in my heart, mind and prayers.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Mel's family! Mel was a valuable asset to Parker and I personally enjoyed working with Mel! We enjoyed many games of Chess over lunchtime also.
