Mel was born December 28, 1933 in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta to parents Glen Magoon and Eva Clemont. He grew up in Rocky Mountain House and eventually moved to Prince George, where at the age of twenty he met his future wife. The two were married a year later, August 1954, and soon after moved to Kamloops and started a family of their own.
We will always remember your extraordinary talents, generosity, endless helpfulness and your love
for your family and pets. We will carry you in our hearts forever.
