Melvin Lewis Silvers, Sr., age 77, a resident of Vinegar Bend, Alabama, passed away on Wednesday, August 11, 2021. Melvin was born October 1, 1943, to parents Gracie Finney and Clarence Francis "C.F." Silvers. Melvin was married in 1966 to his loving wife, Eunice, and together they had three children, Melvin (Mel) Lewis, Jr., Lisa Michelle, and Dora Renee. Melvin was a proud Merchant Marine for several years and traveled the world. After giving up the sea, he started his career as a home builder and carpenter. Melvin had a bright spirit that lit up a room, and he loved to joke and laugh. He was a self-proclaimed handyman and do-it-yourselfer. He was passionate about family, friends, and coffee. He loved thrift-shopping, tinkering with electronics, and watching old westerns. He enjoyed living in the "country." He left an impression on the hearts of many people. Melvin will be dearly missed. Preceding him in death is his wife of 39 years, Eunice Dean Homer Silvers; father, Clarence "C.F." Silvers, Sr.; daughter, Lisa Michelle Silvers; brothers, Bobby Brannan and Donald Silvers; sister, Toni "Rita" Nicholas; and dear friend, Elsie "Marie" Chambliss Mizell.
