It is with heavy hearts but joyful celebration we share that Emilio “Mel” Mezzone of Framingham, MA, husband of Joan (Elliott) Mezzone, passed into eternal rest on February 4, 2020. Few people have the innate ability to light up any room he enters. Mel was that man – one in a million. Whether a devoted family member, one of his multitude of treasured friends, the waitress he just met, a loyal customer at Suburban Automatic Transmission, the Waltham shop he founded and led with his son David, or a dedicated health care provider, Mel immediately let you know you were welcome. With a quick wit and a song for every phrase, Mel had an unparalleled sense of humor, and an unwavering love for all things family, friends, Frank Sinatra, scotch, the Pats, the Sox, and those 18 holes. Mel was the party.

Born April 7, 1934, in Waltham, MA, Mel’s motto “if it is to be it’s up to me” rang true in every element of his life — from pursuing and marrying Joan, his childhood sweetheart, the only woman who ever caught his eye, and the mother of his four children, to proudly serving in the United States Marine Corps as Sargent First Class from 1953 to 1956. He cultivated many equally valued communities of tight knit friends, from Waltham to Franklin, and especially Priscilla Beach where his family gathered for a lifetime of experiences and traditions to be passed on through three generations.

Mel lived large, and refused to sacrifice good times for cautious measures. Every day was “EXCELLENT.” He was and always will be the most loyal, cherished, and loving companion. Mel is survived by Joan, his beloved wife of 64 years; his four children, Donna Fessler, David Mezzone, Debbie Jones, and Dyan Mezzone; his sons-in-law Steven Fessler, Derek Jones, and John Hannafin; his six grandchildren, Michael Jones, Nathan Fessler, Leah Fessler, Laura Hebert, Emilia Hebert, and Harris Jones; his sisters, Anna Powers and Jean DePratti; his brother, Rusty Falzone; in addition to adoring nieces, nephews and countless friends. He is predeceased by his father, Emilio Mezzone, Sr, his mother, Mary (Fiorelli) Mezzone, and his sister, Jean Falzone.

Fly to the moon, Mel. We’ll be seeing you.

My biggest memory is any time you spent with my Uncle Mel you'd definitely were guaranteed a laugh. One vacation Uncle Mel took was a visit to Montreal. I his oldest niece was invited to go. We all packed into his Pathfinder (the car at the time) (8 of us which included grandmother Mimi) and headed out. The Pathfinder car was appropriate because Uncle Mel hadn't written any driving directions down. We got there though. When we arrived in Montreal he asked us kids which motel looked good. We all pointed to one so that's where we stayed. He was a wonderful man all around and a superburb Uncle. He has gone to Heaven now where we all will meet again but while we live here on earth right know this "Great Man" left many great memories, laughs, jokes, humor, and love. And boy could he beat anyone on "Dancin with the Stars" when you saw him dance with my beautiful Auntie Joan. And the both sang together like stars. Love you Uncle Mel. Will miss you for a bit till we meet again. ❤
