My sympathy to your family. I have thought of you often with fondness. Mel was a wonderful teacher and role model. (Homer High School, 1964)

My sympathy to Mel's family from Jan Keller class of '64. I think of Mr. Root often because of so much I learned from him in high school not only as Principal and teacher but just in interacting with him. He influenced my life for the positive and gave me courage to try different things. My greatest respect for him. God bless you all!

Our sympathy to the Mel Root family~from Judy McCoy-Lindauer, Class of 1964, Homer High School, Homer, IL and Mark Lindauer, Class of 1968 Buckley-Loda, IL via Rantoul High School, Rantoul, IL. Mel Root was a wonderful person, teacher, coach and administrator. I found it interesting that later in life I married a young man who also had Mel Root as his teacher, coach and administrator when they were both at Rantoul High School. It truly is a small world. God's blessings to all of you.
