Obituary for Scott Allen Mellon
Services have been canceled for Sunday due to weather conditions. Please check back for future service times.
Scott Allen Mellon, 58, passed away Dec. 14, 2020. He is survived by his wife, Cathi; son, Neal; brother, Ric; and father, Jim. He was born Nov. 6, 1962, in Ventura, California, to Lois and Jim Mellon.
He graduated from Luck High School in 1980 and after graduating moved back to Ventura where he worked as a diesel mechanic for several years. He was head of maintenance at Luck Schools and was a realtor for approximately 20 years. While he was in California he met his future wife, Cathi, and upon a visit to his parents in 1985 with his girlfriend Cathi he bought the land where he and Cathi would build a house and raise a family.
He and Cathi got married in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Aug. 17, 1985, and that would just be the beginning of a marriage full of twists, turns and many laughs and smiles. But never the word quit.
He thought he loved California after moving to Wisconsin when he was 14, so at 17 he moved back to California and lived there for several years. When returning to Wisconsin while dating his future wife, he bought land, built a house and fell in love more and more with his community. Scott loved his community and was very active in helping Luck make its annual ice castle and organizing the Halloween trick-or-treating and parade in Luck for years. He was honored by the community by becoming the grand marshal of Luck, an honor that surprised and was exciting to him. Aside from loving his community, he had a passion for aviation, flying their plane to different places with Cathi and Neal. Occasionally Neal would bring a friend for dinner. One of Scott’s favorite moments in life was helping to rebuild a WWII B-25 with his son.
