This was a hobby that he shared with his family. Melvin was a Mason from the Grand Lodge in Philadelphia.

Mel and I were roommates in college in Florida….wish I had kept up better with Mel over the years. Good man, gone too early!
Mel and I "adopted" each other as brother and sister when we were just teenagers, nearly 60 years ago. We even addressed each other's mother as "Mom". We shared so many good times, and some not so good. There were adventures to buy horses, numerous trail rides, and sharing holidays, and he loved to wreck my Christmas tree by throwing gobs of tinsel on it, because he knew it drove me crazy! Even though I moved to New Mexico we still spoke at least once a week, and on my trips back East I knew he would always have a real Hoagie and a good Jewish pickle lined up. I know his last few years were difficult, and it was heartbreaking to know he was in pain, but he now has peace. Mel I will love you and miss you for the rest of my days.
Mel was a devoted father and grandfather, a good man and a dear friend. He told me about his trips to the rodeo and thoroughly enjoyed his granddaughter's soccer games. I spoke to him nearly every day and will miss those conversations. I know he was suffering, and that he is now at peace.
May his memory be eternal.
