Dear Family of Mel, What great memories the picture of Mel in today's paper brought to me. My connection with Mel was thru Christian Service Brigade when Mel was Capt of the Battalion at Curdes Ave Missionary Church. This was back in the 1970s. Mel was a godly man who had a burden for boys & loved them thru his Lord. We had wonderful fellowship together. I was Capt of Immanuel Baptist Battalion. Psalm 116:15 tells us "Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of His saints" Looking forward to seeing you in Glory one day, Mel. God bless the family. Sincerely in Christ, Gordon Smith

Dear Pam and family:

God's blessing on your loss. Mel was a great friend and fellow Magnavox employee--always with a smile and capable of pulling off miracles in the lab, and at trade shows.

I will continue to pray for you and for the repose of Mel's soul--no doubt that God has already put him to work in Paradise!

Best regards,


Jack & Roberta Schmidt

We are so sorry to learn of Uncle Mel's passing. He was an outgoing man aways had a smile, a good word and ready to share the Word. When Mike was a kid, Mel was a tremendous influence and the sourceof many many good memories. When we were married, he and Doris were fun to visit and always made us feel right at home. He and Pam had a good mariage and we are so sorry she didn't get to spend more time being married to Mel. Everyone who knew him, loved being around him.
