Marna and I want to send our deepest sympathy to the Schwanke family. Our thoughts and prayers to your family. Mel was my first friend when we arrived in Fremont. I enjoyed the time we spent together at church, Kiwanis, and the Chamber. A very respected man of Fremont.

Joey, Cindy and J, I am so sorry to hear of Mel's passing, I was just thinking of him a few days ago! What a great man who was admired by many. He will be greatly missed and leaves behind a hole that cannot be filled. I learned a good hard work ethic from him and I respected him a great deal. RIP Mel!

My sympathies to JoEllen and the Schwanke family. Mel, Joey, and the Greens were great people to work for during 1954-55 summers and holidays while I was a high school student.

Mel was an incredible citizen with a lifetime of service to his nation, the floral industry at local, state and national levels and his community. Dedicated to his family, he and his wife were always there to help in so many ways. The world is a better place because Melvin Schwanke lived. His passing is a loss for Fremont and many miles beyond. Rest in Peace.

My deepest sympathy is extended to all the Schwanke family and appreciation for all Mel has done in the floral industry. He worked hard in his profession, in his church, and in his community. "Rest Eternal grant unto him, O Lord, and may Perpetual Light shine upon him." With love and prayers, Keith
