In 1993, he married Stacie Beveridge and during their 24 years of marriage, had three beautiful children Jordan, Logan, and Dalton. Mel was friends with all and loved by many. He loved sunny days on the beach, spending time at Green Holly Campground, trips to the casino, poker nights with friends, tossing a few cold ones back, and showing up to support his children. Mel was never one to miss a game day whether it was watching his kids play or his Eagles and Phillies. He enjoyed grilling, fishing, swimming, horseshoes, finding new restaurants, and indulging in his favorites like seafood and wings. The good times and shared laughs will always be remembered. Mel is preceded in death by his father, Melvin, and his son, Dalton. He is survived by his mother, Edna, his children, Jordan and Logan (Eddie), his brothers, Joe (Lisa), Pat (Connie), and Steve (Sandra), his father-in-law, Irving, his niece and nephews, Derrek, Kevin, Abby, and Stephen.
