My thoughts and prayers go out to the Kizner Family. I had the pleasure of working with Mel for many, many years in the Treasurer’s Office & then upon transferring to Cordaville Hall, I would see him on Fridays having coffee in the kitchen with his Dull Men friends, prior to their weekly meetings. Mel always greeted me with a big smile, a hug, a small story and a fun joke of the day. To his family – you were his pride & joy, he talked about you always – Jonathan, Jennifer, Stephanie, Diane, son-in-law’s & grandchildren! Stephanie & Jonathan, he was SO proud the adults that you became and the lives that you created for yourselves. Such a wonderful man that I will truly miss.
