My condolences to your family. I knew Mel from the 2 years I worked at Espanola Middle School. He was great-always even tempered, kind and ha had a great sense of humor. Mel invited the staff to the camp in the mountains and I went 2 years in a row. We had a great time. I will always remember him! He was a positive force in education, thank you, and he had some good stories too!

On behalf of the Gibson family, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the Root family. We were saddened to learn of Mel's passing. Mel was a exemplar football player while at NMHU. He always did what was expected and much, much more. He was definitely a gentleman and a scholar. He will remain forever in our hearts. Rest in Peace.
