Mel was born in Tyler, Missouri to Mary K. and Dewey L. Freeman. He lived in Indiana and made permanent residence in Amarillo, Texas. Mel was a loving husband, stepfather, grandfather, brother and uncle. He was caring and giving, and you could always count on him. Laughter was a big part of his character, and he could see the positive of any given situation.

Mel enjoyed anything to do with technology, especially working with or on computers. If you had an issue, Mel was your man to fix your computer issues. He enjoyed a career as a Credit Manager for Panhandle Steele and he was very respected by his colleagues. Mel loved to watch movies and enjoyed going to the movies with his wife and sisters! He also enjoyed educating himself on any topic brought to his attention. If someone asked him a question about anything, he’d spend days researching the topic. He loved learning, spending time with family and traveling.

He is survived by his wife, Frances Freeman of Amarillo, TX; his stepchildren, Zacarias Rodriquez, Orlando Rodriquez, Philip Rodriquez and Krystal Oldfield all of Amarillo, TX; his grandchildren, Travis Maddox, Austin Maddox, Jennifer Rodriquez, Jessica Lopez,  Alessandra Rodriquez, Elias Rodriquez, Alexis McAffrey, Austin Easterly, Alana Rodriquez, Clinton Rodriquez, Miles Rodriquez, Edrena Rodriquez, Natalie Wetsel, Palmer Oldfield, Jameson Oldfield; great-grandchild, Parker Maddox of Indiana; and many more great-grandchildren; his brother, Danny Freeman; his sisters, Sharon Worpell, Karen Song and Kathy Mjolhus; along with many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Mel will be loved and missed deeply.
