Michael Shay Melton passed away Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, after a long illness. He was 62.
A celebration of his life and accomplishments will be scheduled at a later date.
Mike leaves behind a loving wife, a beautiful daughter and two brothers.
Mike's wife, Carol, and daughter, Jenna, both of Nevada City, mourn the loss of their devoted husband and father. His brothers are Gary Melton of Chaska, Minn., and Robert Melton of Alva, Okla.
Mike was a carpenter, but not your ordinary tradesman. Ingenuity in his projects was Mike's forte. His work always showed the pride he took in everything he did. He was a craftsman in every sense of the word.
Mike's love of his family and country lifestyle made a lasting impression on all he met. He will be missed by anyone who knew him.
