He grew up in the Platteville and Gilcrest areas where he farmed with his father until the 1940’s when he went to work for the Run Service Station.

Even though I only knew Mel for a little over 20 years I felt I had known him all my life. He became an instant friend and I have never known anyone as kind and fun to be around. I enjoyed the time he helped me on my scooter, and the scooter rides, and all the stories he shared with Jo Ann and I about his life experiences. I looked forward to our phone conservations each month and the discussions we had. He would always share his knowledge with me, and I learned a lot from him about politics. He was very knowledgeable about this country’s way of life. I will always have special memories of Mel and I am a better person for having him in my life. Jo and I will miss him greatly.
Rest in peace my friend,
Ron Bunker

Mel was one of a kind, a wonderful man that I was so blessed to call my friend. I have many fond memories of him and Ruby, and he will always have a special place in my heart. He will be missed.
