A good one gone, but not forgotten. I worked with Mel at Oregon Steel Mill. As a young millwright his knowledge and willingness to share that wisdom and knowledge was very instrumental in shaping my career, where I still work. My Dad (Curtiss Buster)and he hit it off while they where there. Dad and Mom enjoyed the summer visits Mel and his wife would make to see them in Montana in the summers. I'll let my folks know of his passing. Mel was a man and Dad to be proud of.
