6 thoughts on “Melvin Klaassen

  1. It is very difficult to express in words the JOY Melvin provided for us (& many others, for sure). We will miss him so much. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of his family during this time of his passing.

  2. I shall truly miss my brother-in-Christ — Mel, but I am glad that he is in the presence of our Lord. My condolences.

  3. Melvin was a cherished customer of ours. We always got a kick out of him and looked forward to his coming in for haircuts. The first time he came in he walked into a retail shelf of hair gel and knocked it over, so we would joke and remind him it was there at his future visits. We hope Melvin’s family is comforted by many prayers, and seeks refuge in the Lord. We surely enjoyed him, and will miss such a wonderful man.

  4. Our thoughts go out to all the Klaassen family. Melvin was a great uncle and an even better man. He will be remembered as a truly compassionate man, always good natured and loving to all. Our heartfelt condolences.
    –Jim, Emily and Jeremy Wasser

  5. Thank you for the beautiful service and the tasyy lunch at Melvin’s funeral today. It was a wonderful tribute to him (and his family).

  6. My sincere condolences to Melvin’s dear family. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in God’s promise to soon “swallow up death forever” and “wipe away the tears from all faces.” ( Isaiah 25;8 ) With deepest sympathy.
