Martin Mello Obituary
Martin Mello passed away peacefully on October 25, 2014, one day short of his 70th birthday.
Martin was born on October 26, 1944 in Eagle Pass, Texas. Martin's parents moved to Kern County when he was just a toddler. He attended McFarland schools, graduating from McFarland High. Martin served in The United States Army achieving various decorations and medals. Following decades of working in the maintenance field, Martin retired from The Kern County Parks and Recreation Dept.
Martin cherished spending time with his family, rarely missing a Sunday BBQ. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, watching Dallas Cowboys games, working on his collection of project cars. Martin will be most remembered for being stubborn and ornery from his mule-headed personality, and his ability to make those around him laugh.
Martin is survived by his son, Martin Mello Jr. (Lynnette), daughter Jennifer Mello, three grandchildren Caiden, Kennedy and Milan. He is preceded in death by parents Manuel and Beatriz, mother of his children Derita and many friends.
Graveside services will be held on October 31, 2014 at 1p.m. at North Kern Cemetery in Delano. A viewing is scheduled on October 30, 2014 at Cecil Martin Family Funeral Care 701 34th St. Bakersfield from 4:00pm-8:00pm. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Martin's life.
