All of whom he loved.
Mel and Eva married in 1965 and moved to Yukon in 1967 after Mel had Completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree in History and Economics from the University of Alberta. He never looked back.
Mel was a successful entrepreneur known to dream big, take risks and work hard. He was known for being tough and fair. He was an avid hunter, marksman, horseman and bushman and he took the time to pass those passions and knowledge on to his family.
Mel leaves a legacy behind that can be appreciated by all Yukoners in the form of family values, buildings, museum donations, civic duties, and as a strong member of the community. Mel believed in supporting those in need.
The Family would like to thank all who share in our sorrow and in our happiness to have been included in his amazing life.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to everyone who has sent us condolences and offerings of love and support during this challenging time.
A Celebration of Mel's life will be held on July 8, 2023
