Donald Melton was the Captain of the BHS football team, and while playing football also played the roll of Alfred P. Doolittle in the BHS production of " My Fair Lady". He was an actor, a mailman, a football hero, a clown, and could have been one of The Three Stooges. He was a father who taught his daughter how to survive and never give up. We loved him, he was the patriarch of his family, taking care of his family when things looked a bit sour. A Memorial service for Don Melton is going to be held at: VFW#2323 17522 Chatsworth St. Granada Hills, Ca. 91344 Services to begin at 2pm on Sunday the 16th of February, 2104. It's a pretty big place, room for aprox. 250 people. And knowing the many people that Don knew there may be just that many, and all are welcome. Refreshments ( We're thinking Santoro's ) will be served and booze will be available for purchase for those wishing to partake.
