My deepest sympathy to Melvin's family. In the mid-1980's he worked with Huey Wallace and me at the US Forest Service Office in Pineville. Melvin was interesting character, hard worker, and fun to be around. We had some good times together.

Mel never met a stranger. I worked with him at DOTD - Alexandria for several years. He was my good friend. I will miss his laugh and his friendship. May God welcome him into His Kingdom and may the perpetual light shine upon him. Rest in peace my friend. Gonna miss you Mel Hicks.
