William F. Mellor

Warsaw - William Frederick "Freddie" Mellor, 88, passed away Saturday, June 13, 2020 at the family home.

Freddie was born Nov. 14, 1931 in Millersburg to the late Owen Mellor Sr. and Laura (Hawkins) Mellor. He was an avid hunter & fisherman, accomplished archer, and he loved racing and riding horses. He was a talented story writer and poet as well. He was very proud to serve his country during the Korean War in the U.S. Air Force. Following his time in the service, he worked for General Electric, retiring after 30 years. But his greatest contribution was his devotion and love he gave to his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He was a giving, kind man that never turned from anyone in need.

Freddie leaves behind his beloved wife of 68 years, JoAnne (McGrady) Mellor of Warsaw; his children, Linda (Bill) Angle of West Lafayette, Sandra (Harold) Mellor-Lauby of Warsaw, Sherrie (Robert) Waller of Granville, and Dan (Teresa) Mellor of Warsaw; nine grandchildren; eighteen great-grandchildren; a brother, Owen Mellor Jr. of Killbuck; and a sister, Alice (Mellor) McFarland of Millersburg.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four brothers, John, Edgar, Glen, & Asa; and three sisters, Helen, Ada, & Ruth.

A private graveside service will be held at the McGrady Family Cemetery, with military honors performed by the Coshocton Co. Joint Veterans Council Honor Guard. The Fischer Funeral Home in Warsaw is handling arrangements. www.fischerfuneralhome.com

I have some great memories of going to Freddie and JoAnne's place as a child. The entire family always made our family feel welcome. All sorts of critters to play with, buggy rides, fun outdoor places to explore.

Freddie was a kind and thoughtful person. I will always remember him with a smile because he was always smiling.

Freddie was always one of the most interesting guys to talk to in any number of subjects. I always enjoyed being around him. My moms brothers and sisters were some of the nicest people you could ever meet.
Thoughts and prayers out to JoAnne and family.

While not blood, "Grandpa Miller" was a consistent force of education, encouragement, and goodness. I and many others were blessed to have him as leader in #412.

Grandpa Freddy gave me so many wonderful memories, my life be for horses and the outdoors. I will always remember his laugh and the twinkle in his eyes when he teased Grandma. He was truly a wonderful man who will be missed. But he lives forever and we will all be together again, united with our Lord in Heaven.
