Stephen Melvin Zacharias, Dearborn, Michigan - January 13, 1936 – September 5, 2020. Naval Veteran, American Legion Fort Dearborn Post #364. Loving husband. Survived by one sister, three sons, two grandsons and many nieces and nephews. "Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today" – Pops Celebration Services tentatively set for January 2021. Celebrate His Life. He Loved Life and made the most of it. People, classic cars, golf and ball-hawking, happy hours in his garage, his flowers and home. His willingness to help others (even if you didn’t want it), LOL. Don’t be sad that he is not with us, Be Happy that you were one of the people in this world to know him. We, the lucky few. So, raise a glass, or two, and wish him Bon Voyage! Until we meet again. Please visit HowePeterson for an online guestbook.

Uncle Mel was such a special man and so loved. I will miss his smile and his hugs. He always made time for family and made everyone feel special. I have many fond memories that will stay in my heart forever. We have been blessed to have him in our lives. We will miss you!

I only had the pleasure of meeting him a few times. I know him as Zack's Dad. Always a smile and a friendly face. Would always wave and say "Hi how you doing'. From the times I spoke to him he seemed to have a genuine kindness and zest for all that life had to offer. The world has lost a wonderful spirit. Heaven has gained a new resident. My deepest condolences to all that loved him.

He was such a sweet man. He was so warm and welcoming to me, and I am so appreciative of that. I know he will be remembered for his generosity and kindheartedness. My deepest condolences to the family.

On 9-5-20 I lost my uncle, godfather, and great friend. We had great times together, he was always there for me, especially when my father passed (his younger brother). He was a great friend to all, and loved life. Bye for now godfather, but I will see you later. Have a cold one ready! RIP
