Melvin was one of the good guys, I worked with him at the mine and he always was there to talk with and joke with. Melvin made it easier for me because I was new at mining. He will definitely be missed. RIP brother.

Pork is my nephew and I’m going to miss him dearly. He worked extremely hard through the years to provide for his family. Always willing to help anyone out. He set an example for us all.
One of the strongest individuals physically and mentally you could every meet. His passing is not only a great loss for our family but our community as well.
Rest in Peace my nephew.

Melvin was so ornery in school when I was @ river. I can still see him smiling in the hallway at river high school. But I was saddened when I heard he was ill. Many prayers for his wife and Children.
