Obituary for Melvin "Mel" Lee De Kraker
His master replied “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.”
Melvin “Mel” Lee De Kraker entered into his eternal home on Saturday, March 28, 2020 with his beloved angel by his side, Pamela Jean. His greatest blessing, they enjoyed 30 years of marriage, always living each day thanking God for each other and also for their children, Bridgette Schmidt, Fred De Kraker, Mandy and Michael Badgerow and Christopher Williams.
Mel adored his true blessings, his grandchildren, Dakota Rose Schmidt, Ethan Michael and Lauren Jean Badgerow.
Mel is survived by family and many dear friends, including his “Tool & Die” Buddies he met through his 40-year career as a skilled trade CNC machinist. He took great pride in his work and it always showed perfection. Mel was a man of integrity who lived believing in doing the right thing always, working hard, being honest and putting God and his family first in all things. He truly was an inspiration to many.
