Obituary of Melvin "Mel" Arthur McInnis
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Mel McInnis on Monday, January 2, 2023. Mourning his loss are his wife Leslie McInnis, son Adam McInnis (Christina), daughter Laura Krauss (David), sister Marilyn Bilotta (Domenic), brother-in-law John Auld (Allison), sisters-in-law Lori Mann, Lisa Auld (Kevin) and Rosemarie Auld, as well as many nieces and nephews. Mel was predeceased by his parents Cecil and Dorothy McInnis.
Mel’s greatest joy was his family, and he has left us with a lifetime of memories to cherish. He is remembered fondly as a funny, strong and sensitive husband and father who gave great big bear hugs. He was a jack-of-all-trades, a major movie buff and loved camping with his family.
Mel was an avid model railroader, and his love of trains was known to all. We know he was at peace when his final train departed the station. We are extremely thankful for the excellent care Mel received from the staff at GNGH, and the compassion they showed toward us.
In keeping with Mel's wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. Friends and family are invited to an open house on Sunday, January 8, 2023 from 2:00 p.m until 4:00 p.m at Fairhaven Seniors Building, 3568 Montrose Road in Niagara Falls.
