Robert Steven "Strongheart" Melendrez Obituary
Robert "Strongheart" Steven Melendrez

Robert "Strongheart" Steven Melendrez, born January 21, 1953 in Santa Monica, California - passed away April 2, 2015 in Hawthorne, California. Died of complications of Pancreatic Cancer. Survived by his wife, Cynthia and daughter, Courtney. Longtime resident of Hawthorne, Bob passed in the neighborhood he actually grew up in. Hawthorne High alumni, he kept in touch with his fellow "Cougars" on their website and previous reunions. TRW/Northrup Employee for many years. Member of Calvary Chapel LAX and would serve when needed on the worship team. Avid bowler, Bob was on several leagues over the years and entered countless tournaments holding an average of 230. What I remember most about my wonderful husband is his music. Bob was a very accomplished singer/songwriter and played in many bands over the years. He was equally skilled at guitar, drums and keyboard. Having a style similar to Steven Stills, he played his part in a tribute to his longtime favorite Crosby, Stills and Nash band. His voice melted my heart! His sense of humor was incredible and timing impeccable! Although a quiet man, he was very wise and always knew the exact words to say in any situation. We will all miss him immensely.

Bob's Memorial Service will be held at the Calvary Chapel South Bay, 19300 Vermont Ave, Gardena, CA 90248 - at 2pm on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Immediately following will be a reception in the courtyard. Bob would love for everyone to be there. Please sign the guest book at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
