Melbourne Alexander Gass F.P., had been given the gift of life on
December 21, 1938 in New Haven, PEI. On Tuesday, December 11, 2018 he
decided it was time to give it back. He said his last good-byes to
family, and surrounded by them, passed very peacefully at the Queen
Elizabeth Hospital. He considered himself a lucky man who had lived a
good life … and for that he was sincerely grateful. His ever
positive and optimistic outlook, inquisitive nature, love of learning,
pride in being an Islander and Canadian, and love of celebrating with
family and friends were evident to all who met him.
Mel is survived by his children, Randy, Kim (Bob) Andrews, Robb, their
mother Lois, and his three much loved grandchildren Matthew, Jordan
and Katie Andrews. Also survived by his brother Andy, and many nieces
and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Duncan and Lydia (MacDonald)
Gass, brothers Wilbur, John and sister Bernice.

14 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral service to take place at Belvedere
Funeral Home on Saturday, December 15 at 10 am. Reception to follow.
