Meet Melvin

Melvin was born in Henley, Texas and raised on a farm. As the last of 6 boys, he was too young to work out in the fields and is very thankful that he did not have to do what his brothers did! He was spared from having to go to World War II and farming duties. Melvin did pick up a green thumb over his lifetime and has always loved growing tomatoes to give them away. He and his son Barry just finished planting this year’s crop at Sodalis and look forward to enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Professionally Melvin went to work for the electrical union I.E.B.W. for 45 years. He was a volunteer fireman with the Henley VFD and did help put out many fires! In his spare time he was a deacon at the Henley Baptist Church. His list of loves includes the following: his family of 2 boys and 3 grandchildren, the Dallas Cowboys, flying in little planes, country music, church hymns (favorite songs Amazing Grace and the Old Rugged Cross), the color blue, plaid shirts, cold root beer and sweet dogs with happy tails.
