A Tribute To Melvin On Father's Day
Mel was a man of honor who loved his daughters with all his heart. He was taken from this earth too young so only was able to know one of four grandchildren for a short time. He was building a swing shaped like an airplane for that grandson at the time of his death. Mel never missed a day of school or was tardy for twelve years. He took obligations very seriously, He served his country in the Army when drafted without complaint even though it delayed our marriage. Mel loved his job as a Commercial Refrigeration Mechanic and was a loyal employee. He was very talented and handy. If someone said something couldn't be fixed that was a challenge to him to show them it could be done. He used his talents to help people especially widow women, only charging for any parts used. He loved to talk and could carry on a conversation with anyone about anything. Melvin Lieck 1933- 1987 missed but not forgotten.
