It is with great sadness that I announce the sudden loss of my husband and best friend Mel, on Monday January 18th 2021. After many months of declining health and weeks in the hospital, I share in this loss with his many friends, his children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Mel was a retired Bell Canada employee and manager for 41 years. He also served with the Canadian Air force in WW II. Cremation has taken place. Following Mel’s wishes no services will be held. As an expression of sympathy memorial donations may be made to the Mariposa House Hospice through the Simcoe Funeral Home (705)327-0221.
