Karen and Hunter sorry for your loss of Melvin. I worked with Melvin in the Police Department and had been around him for years. We played numerous league baseball games together, fished and socialized a lot. Melvin was quite a character and will be missed but he leaves his accomplishments for all that knew him. Bless all of the Lonon family on Melvin's passing.

Dear London Family, I joined the Lions Club when Mel was president. He is someone that inspired me and was always a pleasure to be around and even when we were working events he would always show up to lend a hand. In my mind the infectious optimism that he had will stay with me the rest of my days. May God Bless Mel and the London Family
