Vincent R. Melanson, 83, of Beverly Hills, Florida, passed away at his home on June 1, 2016. He was born on February 21, 1933, in the Bronx, New York, to Vincent and Mary Ellen (Fedor) Melanson.
During his school years, Vincent excelled at football, basketball, and baseball. He would often recall the great times he had while visiting his grandparents' farm in Pennsylvania during the summers. He enlisted in the Navy during the Korean Conflict and served on the USS Palau.

During his retirement, Vincent enjoyed playing tennis and golf, swimming, going to the dog track, watching sports on TV, and visiting his grandchildren. He also took great pride in writing frequent letters to the editor to express his views on various political and social issues. He was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife Barbara (Davis) Melanson, son Guy R. Melanson and family, daughter Donna (husband Mike) Leach and family, grandchildren Andrew (wife Megan) Minish and family, step-daughters Starla (husband Tom) McGorty and family, Dana (husband Wes) Smith and family.
