His hobbies were fishing, hunting, bowling and gardening. He enjoyed puzzles and playing cards. Melvin''s greatest joy was spending time with family. His life was a testament to this. Always there to help with home projects and a popular caretaker with his grandchildren. Mel was comfortable in the kitchen and not opposed to experiment - rhubarb pie and such. Mel loved to tinker around the house. Home was important - where his heart was and where he wanted to live out his life. He suffered numerous medical afflictions over the past 8 years compromising the likelihood of his wishes to remain at home. His wife for over 65 years, Jean, provided the needed care - and Melvin did spend his remaining years at home. Characteristically, Melvin was selfless in nature, mild mannered, avoided the spotlight, a man of few words - but much action. Love of being with family kept Melvin looking forward to all of his tomorrow''s in spite of his physical limitations and discomfort. His loss is beyond measure. We anxiously await our reunion.

"The secret of death is found in the heart of life. For life and death are one, just as the river and sea are one. In the depth of our hopes and desires lies our silent knowledge of the beyond. Like seeds dreaming beneath the snow, our hearts dreams of spring. Trust these dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity. For, only when we drink from the river of silence shall we indeed sing. And when we have reached the mountain top, then shall we begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim our limbs, then shall we truly dance." - Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet.
