John F. Melahn, 76, formerly of Calabash, passed away Nov. 23, 2018, after a long illness.
John was preceded in death by his son, John Scott. Survivors include his wife of 55 years Sandy Melahn of Calabash; daughter Kari Lyn Dinatale (Michael); and grandchildren, Kelci Lyn and Mikey John all of Fuquay-Varina.
John had a degree in microbiology and worked in the pharmaceutical industry for more than 37 years.
John and Sandy retired and built their dream house in Calabash in 2003.
John served on the planning and zoning committee for two years and as a Calabash commissioner four years.
John was a jack-of-all-trades; he could do anything and was an avid fisherman. He and his son Scott will go to the Little River inlet at a later date to feed all the fish they never caught.
