He attended District #92 country school up through the 8th grade. He received a certificate for his perfect attendance. He was united in marriage to Stella Woitalla on November 24, 1960 at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Harding, MN. The couple made their home in Buh Township where they farmed for over fifty years. In his earlier years he loved to go fishing, until his farm became his life, which he loved. It put a smile on his face when people would tell him how straight his corn rows were. Melvin enjoyed doing field work, going for Sunday drives to check the crops, playing cards, and spending time with his family. He was known for his many creative talents including carpentry, fabricating with steel, and building farm wagons. He loved the challenge of fixing anything that was broken. Melvin was a member of St. Johns Nepomuk Catholic Church in Lastrup, MN. His family will remember him as a loving, kind and caring man.
