Melvin was so much fun, all the time! He enjoyed most everything and was usually the life of the party. He loved music, singing karaoke, camp fires-especially at Camp 1, popcorn, fishing, drawing trees, taking hikes, dogs, telling jokes and most of all spending time with his family.

Alex, Kassie and Max, his grandchildren, were extremely blessed to have him present for so much of their lives and will be forever grateful for the sense of humor, adventure and love of music that he shared with them.

He is survived by his wife Diana and his only sister Dorothy (John) Piatt.

His children, David Phillip-Rhinelander (Kendra Glebke), Ann Passamoni-Green Bay (Phil), Jean Renard-Green Bay (Rick) and Daniel Phillip-Green Bay.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his beloved brothers, Gerald, Don, George, Albert Jr., Maurice and Raymond.

His family would like to thank Unity Hospice, Kewaunee Health Center, Patti, his VA nurse and the Talk of the Town for all the jam sessions.
