Melvin Erin Cross passed away at home on 12 March 2021 after stubbornly denying illness for several years.
Born in 1943, Mel managed to fit in 200 years of life in his 77 years. Friends all cherish different memories with Mel, from his useful solutions for anything mechanical, heated political discussions, inappropriate jokes, or just downright stirring the pot; however, we all share one memory in common: his signature every day look of a pocketed T-shirt, jeans, sneakers, and a ball cap with his ponytail and beard. To no one’s surprise, Mel worked at his plastic molding shop all the way to his very last day of life.
Mel was preceded by his two sons Tim and Darrin. Mel is survived by his wife Tammy, three children Chelsea, Michael and Brian, sisters Edna, Esther, and Agnus, and many, many friends.
Friends and family are invited to come have a drink in Mel’s honor at one of his favorite places, Mel’s Place on 5020 Airline Dr, on 27 March from 1-9 PM.
