Melvin was a wonderful young man and I was ever so blessed to have been under his management while working for Fed. Ex. He was a great Manager, fair and open to ideas from those under him and treated everyone kindly. I loved working for him and to me he was the best of the best. My deepest sympathy to the family he has left behind.

  2. With deepest sympathy to the entire family. Mel was my “boss, mentor, and friend”, and not a day will go by that I will not sit and reflect on what he has taught me and inspired me to do. If I am able to have a life that has impacted so many in such a short, I will have total fulfillment. The years we have spent together will truly be the experiences of my life that I will remember forever.
