 U.S. Navy veteran of WWII, served as a gunner on a B-24, and boxed competitively, as a welterweight.  He participated in Honor Flight, traveling to the WWII Memorial. Participant in the Delco Senior Games, several years, medaling  and enjoying the camaraderie. He loved house-sales, shopping, and good food.  His favorite was hiking in the woods with his dog, his children and neighborhood kids trailing behind him, lighting a bonfire, baking  potatoes, and telling the kids to find sticks to cook the hotdogs and marshmallows he brought.  It was just like day camp.....only BETTER!  A hard-working business owner, a fault, helping family, friends, and strangers. We love and miss him.      Melvin was interred at Haym Salomon      Memorial Park.
