Melvin Boone, a resident of Miramichi Road, passed away on July 21, 2023, at the age of 83. Born and raised in Newfoundland, Melvin met his beloved wife, Viola, at the tender age of 16.

He leaves behind his brother, Edward Boone, and sisters, Bernetta (Wilson) Bennett and Betty (Bob) Tucker, all residing in Newfoundland, as well as several nieces and nephews.
