Obituary of Melvin L Letson

Melvin L. Letson Sr., age 82 of Remus, passed away Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at Masonic Pathways in Alma. A memorial service will be held Saturday, June 16th, at 2:00 PM, at Janowicz Family Funeral Home in Remus, with Pastor Greg Buchner officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. 


Melvin was born January 19, 1936, the son of Robert and Mary (Lash) Letson. He proudly served his county in the United States Maries Corps for nearly four years before he met and married the love of his life, Bonnie Karcher. Together the two grew their family to include two sons. Melvin loved to tinker, mainly with cars, but he always found a way to keep busy. He was a very hard worker, loved his westerns, and his beloved dog, Fifi. He was known to be stubborn, humerous, gentle kind, and most of all, devoted to his wife. Bonnie was Melvin’s world and he remained committed to her until his last breath. 


His comical and caring ways will be greatly missed by his wife, Bonnie Letson; sons, Allen and Melvin Jr. (Kelly) Letson; sister, Margret Johnson; grandchildren, Chance, Sharina, and Joshua, and six great-grandchildren.
