John Albert Melton was born on May 1, 1952 to Eugene Albert & Dolores Anne (Cassedy) Melton in Chadron, Nebraska. John passed away at Rapid City Regional Hospital on Sunday, November 10, 2013. His entire life was spent in the Chadron area. He attended 13 years of school at Assumption Academy and graduated in 1970. During his high school years he loved his sports playing both football & basketball. After graduation he attended Chadron State College. He inherited his dad’s talent for wrenching and did this work all his life. He loved to fish and always had a good fish story to tell.
John was a great Husker fan and many times we were pulling him out from under a table during a frustrating game. We always had fun teasing him about his Pittsburgh Steelers. John could have written a book about the life of his dog, Ralph. Ralph took him on many an adventure.
If you don’t know it already, ask the family about John’s favorite joke.
He is preceded in death by his father Eugene Albert Melton and Brother Leonard Ernest Melton.
