December 23, 1983 ‒ September 28, 2017

Delaware, Ohio

Marc Lee Mellon, 33, of Delaware passed away unexpectedly Thursday evening, September 28, 2017 at his residence.

He was born December 23, 1983 in Gaylord, Michigan to Dr. Gregory Mellon and Judy (Wojtkowiak) Mellon.

Marc was a kind compassionate person and would always help out whenever asked or needed. He always had a smile, was fun-loving, outgoing and thoughtful. He was a simple living and humble individual.

Marc was an avid golfer and as a sophomore at Hayes High School, helped clinch the District Title. He graduated from Ohio Northern University with a degree in high performance engines and had the ability to tear down and rebuild anything. Marc loved his Honda cars and driving fast.

Marc’s family life was very important to him. He was an avid and proud Michigan Wolverine fan. Lauren and Marc made trips to Northern Michigan for golfing, hunting at the family hunting camp, and recreation at the casinos. He loved visiting with Grandpa and Grandma Wojtkowiak and Mellon and all of his aunts, uncles and cousins.

Left to cherish his memory is the love of his life of 14 years, Lauren Lowry; parents, Greg (Mary) Mellon and Judy A. Mellon; brothers, Russell Mellon and Brentt (Robyn) Mellon; maternal grandparents, Leonard and Joan Wojtkowiak; paternal grandmother, Judith J. Mellon; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins who loved him very much. This love we all share will never go away.

Marc was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Dr. Dennis Mellon, uncles Dr. Jeffrey Mellon and Mark Mellon and aunts Denise Mellon and Valerie Mellon.

There will be a memorial gathering on Monday, October 2, 2017 from 5 – 7 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive (formerly 1510 W. William Street), Delaware. Celebration of life services will follow at 7:00 pm.

  • I am so heart broken for the Mellon’s and the Lowry’s and all the families broken by Marc’s passing. My entire adult life has been with him as part of the family. My extra cousin, the greatest love of my cousin and friend Lauren. He was my kids’ ‘uncle’ Marc their whole lives, because that’s just the character of the man he was. He was anything needed. A help, a friend, a protector, a ray of sunshine… In 14 years I’ve never seen him be anything but fun, inclusive, compassionate and honest and that is a terrible wound to recover from.

    All our love goes out to everyone in his family, to his friends, we are all suffering this impact because it is so very far reaching. That’s the legacy of a good man- to have touched so many lives. You’re all in our prayers.

  • I’m sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept my condolences. God’s word, the Bible offers comfort and hope especially when we suffer great losses like our loved ones. The good man Job had great faith in his God. He said, “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service until my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” -(Job 15:14,15) Take comfort in the hope to see our loved ones who have passed a live again.

  • RIP. I’ll never forget the days growing up in Hayes Colony with Brentt and the boys. Marc and Russell Mellon were the big brothers you wanted on your side. Even though they terrorized us at times, they taught us a lot, and always had our back.

    Brentt, Russell, the Mellon family — very sorry for your loss. Marc will be missed.

  • I was asking my grandsons today what they recalled about Mark. Josiah is 7, Malachi is 10. They both talked about him being fun. Josiah said he remembered him and what he looked like. They both said they liked him a lot and that he was nice and always smiled and laughed with them, making them smile. They will always remember him, as I will too. He brought comfort to my sister’s family and to my mom which brought comfort to me. I remember him as a peacemaker – an intermediary. A kind young man who helped and wanted to be friendly and gentle and yet willing to step up and protect and defend. Mark was family.

    Lauren, I am so sorry for your loss!!! Know I am here and we love you!!! ❤

  • I am so sorry to hear of this. My heart breaks for the entire family. Working for Dr. Mellon and babysitting the three boys back in the day, was a trip. Marc was always just as sweet as could be. Praying for you all during this difficult time.

  • So many sleepovers at the Mellon household growing up, playing video games all night and causing trouble. I was closer with Brentt, but still hung around Marc plenty.

    I’ll never forget the time I woke up in the middle of the night on their coach in a panic becuase I couldn’t move. It took me a minute to realize I was tied to the couch, courtesy of Marc and Russell. Sleepover rule number one, don’t fall asleep first. Still a hilarious memory.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Everyone in your family was always great to me. Many fun memories growing up. RIP Marc.

  • It is so hard to believe Marc is gone. He won’t be calling any more, and we won’t be hearing “Hi grandma and Grandpa,it’s your favorite grandson.” We loved him so.

  • So sorry for your loss Greg (Mary). I only met Mark a couple of times while he was up visiting with his Grandpa and Grandma but he seemed like such a great guy. As I read the comments listed, I’m sure he was and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

  • So sad to hear this news! I had all of the boys in class when they were younger and watched them grow up. My heart goes out to Greg and Judy and Lauren and everyone close to Marc. Rest In Peace, Marc. Prayers for peace and comfort.

  • So very sorry to read this. Dr. Greg is a kind and compassionate person and I would wish him only love and peace in his life. I didn’t know your family but I pray that God holds you all in his grace and have your sorrows and heavy burdens lightened.

  • Dr. Mellon,
    It is with heartfelt sympathy to hear of the passing of your son, Marc.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you that God will comfort you and your family and that you can hold on to the great memories that you have of him.

    Sincerely
    Mike and Joyce Condit
