Melvin left behind many friends including Wendell Fenner, who was like a son to him. He was there for Melvin until the very end. 

Melvin worked in construction his entire life and partnered with his father at Courtney Construction for many years. He was a carpenter at heart and was always working on a project. 
He adored his two grandchildren Peyton and Connor, and never missed an opportunity to talk about them and share stories.

Melvin enjoyed hunting and playing cards, spending time with his set back friends, and watching nascar; he enjoyed many trips with friends in the past years.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday, February 19, 2023 at McDaniel Funeral Home Chapel. The family will receive friends one hour before the service.
