Goulart, Melvin J.  
Melvin J. Goulart April 8, 1920 - March 4, 2015 Resident of Oakland The world lost one of the great ones, with the passing of Mel on March 4th. Mel passed peacefully after hearing his A's win their first Spring Training game. He is now in our Heavenly Father's field of dreams, enjoying all the baseball games and playing cards with his beloved wife, Betty, son Melvin A., parents Antonio and Maria, brothers Raymond and Tony and sister Thelma, all who predeceased him. Mel was born April 8, 1920 in Oakland to Antonio and Maria Goulart. He graduated from Oakland Tech in 1938, having lettered in Baseball.

Upon returning home, he worked in the family milk business most of his life; a proud owner of Goulart's Dairy, alongside his brother Tony and son Melvin, finally retiring at age 72. Mel married his love Betty in 1951(deceased 2009). They spent the next 58 years raising and enjoying their three children, Melvin A (Susan), Frances and Margaret Mary (Bill). Next to his family, Mel's greatest enjoyment was baseball. He played with many semi-pro teams during the 1930-40's, and remained a faithful Oakland A's fan and season ticket holder through the 2014 season, lucky to have thrown out the first pitch at two games. He met so many good friends at those A's game, rarely missing a home game and sharing his love of the game with grandsons Daniel and Patrick. A member of the Knights of Columbus 2730 for 77 years, Mel was often at St Jarlaths church cooking fund-raising events, and selling turnovers. He participated in many of his childrens activities, including Pop Warner Football's Oakland Dynamites. He was an avid Oakland Raiders Fan and season ticket holder for many years. You could always find Mel in his woodshop, making projects for his family and friends, while waiting for the next ballgame. He is survived by daughters Margaret Mary (Bill) and Frances, daughter-in-law Susan, "son" Ted, nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Also survived by many great neighbors, especially Sharon and John, his K of C "brothers", extended family and friends. Viewing Sunday March 8, 1-3, with Vigil at 3pm .
