June 22, 1937 ~ July 12, 2022 (age 85)


Mel passed away suddenly, but peacefully, July 12, 2022. He was preceded in death by both parents, 2 sisters, 1 brother and 1 grandson. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, three children and their spouses, 2 sisters, 11 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

He was a pillar in our family and the business com- munity. He had a zest for life and enjoyed great times with his many friends. He and his wife began their young lives right out of high school/ college and propelled them- selves into making goals and planning their exciting future together. They both graduated from UC Davis. Mel became a Journeyman Carpenter, Elementary School Teacher, Real Estate Developer, Home Builder and Angus Rancher. He held many leadership positions in local organizations. While Mel was heavily involved in helping his community, he was always a true “Cowboy” at heart!

His Memorial Service will be held this Saturday @4pm, July 23, 2022 at the Yosemite Church, 2230 East Yosemite Ave, Merced.
