"Mel" past away 12/20/21 after surgery and a blood clot resulting in a heart attack. He was born 4/13/1935 in Los Angeles, California. Mel enjoyed motorcycles, camping, fishing, dune buggees, all outdoor fun. He would also look forward to seeing his friends in their coffee club and appreciated being a part of that. Mel leaves behind his wife of 56 years, Denise; sister Marsha, two sons: Rod and Paul; two grandsons: Judd and Tim and two great-grandsons. A celebration of life will be in the Spring of 2022.
