Mel, you were an awesome friend. Hangin out at your apt, driving the moving truck to your new house in Decatur, Il was just great. Watching you ride your motorcycle or drive in your little convertible brought me many smiles. Keeping you company n getting to know you was a highlight of my life. I am saddened to know how hard life got for you. I pray for your soul my special friend. My you R.I.P. big guy... Bobbi Jo

Melvin Turpin was one of the main reasons that I started following UK BB and still follow the Cats! Still breaks my heart to this day!! You will ALWAYS be # 54. RIP Big Dipper.

I met Mel when he was working as a security guard in Central Illinois in the 90s. He was such a nice man - very easy to talk with. It was just so surreal to be around someone that had played at such a high level for a program like Kentucky and in the pros. I was grateful for the opportunity to talk sports (including the classic Illinois/KY snow game in CHampaign in 1983?) with such a nice and kind man. RIP, Melvin
