Obituary for Melchor "Mel" Robles

Melchor “Mel” Robles, age 86 died May 05, 2017 at home surrounded by his loving family.
He was the first of eleven born to Norberto and Maria Robles born on September 02, 1930 in Sonora, Texas.
He was raised in Sonora until entering the US Army as a Ranger in the Korean War.
He met and married Rosa Martinez May 12, 1955 in Moses Lake, WA. They moved to McMinnville shortly thereafter and called McMinnville their home ever since.
Mel worked a variety of jobs including being a labor contractor and working at Rex and Fleetwood Mobile Homes. He was a talented cobbler by trade which he learned at an early age. After retirement, he worked as a cobbler for Sole Mates as something to fill his time. He took great pride in the work he did and had clients come from as far away as the coast.
Mel is preceded in death by his wife Rosa and parents and bothers, Francisco and Jose. He is survived by his children four children, Jose of Grover Beach, CA; David of Woodburn; Teresa of Dayton and Noe of McMinnville, five grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is also survived by siblings David Robles of McMinnville, Carmen Gonzales of Amity, Alice Sanchez of Salem, Norberto Robles of Washington, Dolores Lopez and Herminia Robles of Texas, Delia Reyes of Illinois and Jeana Robles of Florida and many nieces and nephews.
He is much loved and will never be forgotten – he will always be in our hearts and SOLES.
