In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Garry Lee Stewart and sister Velva Jean (Stewart) Bauerbach. Melvin loved being outside playing golf and working in the garden. He loved his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and was always proud of their accomplishments and what was happening in their lives.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints where he worshipped and faithfully served others.
He served in the US Air Force during the Korean war. His career as a model maker in tool and die shops at Miller Welding and Machine shop, Remington Rand, Dravo, Kardex in Marietta OH and Electrolux in Kinston, NC provided for his family.
