Melvin, a wonderful Christian man who climbed a ladder to change light bulbs throughout out our church. He unlocked and locked our church doors. Picked up church member who needed rides to and from church. Took out the trash every Sunday night.Fixed things that were broken and many other tasks even when 90 years old. We loved Melvin and will miss our Sunday School class President. He was such a fine Christian leader and husband to Mary. Our condolences to her and the family.

we are saddened by the passing of Mel. He was a special friend. We will miss his humor and his friendship. His love for the LORD was expressed in his love for the church. Our Prayers are with Mary and the family.
