Obituary for Melvin 'Mel' Dean Whitman

Mel Whitman, passed away October 16, 2020 in what can only be described as “his way.” Mel was born October 25, 1952 in Denver, CO.

Rain, snow or sun, Mel would be riding his Harley to and from work. After learning of Mel’s passing, several neighbors shared how they will miss the 4:30am wake up call which was Mel starting his bike. Mel took pride in his work and if someone was willing to learn accounting, Mel was ready to teach them. Mel enjoyed road trips on his bike, trips to Sturgis with his uncle Rick and participated in several charity rides.

Mel is survived by his daughters Jennifer Houpt (Michael), Marci Whitman, two grandchildren and a great grandchild.

Mel wasn’t one to have the attention on him and in following with his wishes will be holding a private gathering to share memories. The family invites you to share stories of Mel as a reminder how very much he meant to so many.

Jennifer Houpt

To my dad I love you and will miss you and our weekly emails we used to do teasing each and always having that ear I needed when I had decisions I had to make and always being the voice of reason.
