I could not ask for a more Loving Brother in Law. Frank was always a big part of are Familys lives especially when it came to Sports. Frank would show up at my basketball games and my Daughters sports events. I was so happy that he was there when we won City Championship. He always saw the best in everyone. What a Great man I would call him a Walking Encyclopedia he could remember dates like no other. R.I.P. Frank you will truly be missed. Praying for Family and Friends.

I was so blessed and honored to call this man, Grandpa for 43 years. He was the most loving, gentle, understanding, smart, loyal, humble, honest and hardworking man I have ever known. I am going to miss going over there and him walking me thru his good ol days or his childhood stories that some werent so glory, but turned him into the strong man he became because he lived through them. I'm gonna miss watching his b & w movies, or ANY game on TV with him. I'm gonna miss calling over there when I had a question or a problem that needed a answer or problem solved just to have Grandma answer the phone and for me to ask if Grandpa was around? Even though life wasnt always fair to him, Grandpa lived it without any hate, negativity or resentment in his heart! He always forgave and loved! I'm so glad his great grandson Colt got to feel his love for a short 8 years, but in those years, he got to experience a GREAT man with a heart of gold and a love for ball like no other, (Uncle Frankie's a close match tho) We truly got blessed with the best! Gramps, save us a spot, until then, keep watching over us! We miss and love you with all our heart and soul and Thank you for being so good to all of us for all these years! Xoxo

Today I have to step up to the plate and bury my hero,my first best friend my dad. My dad was a wonderful family man he loved us all equally and was a wonderful husband to my mom.My dad was a hard working blue collar individual with a phenomenal mind,on Friday the the 15th day he passed he told me a great story from 1947 he was a paperboy for the Cleveland Press and what he did was collect from different customers everyday so he could attend 33 straight Indians games,he would jump on the streetcars as 13yearold boy go downtown get a grandstand ticket and with no extra money he would starve throughout every game to see his Indians,baseball was his 1st sports passion as I found out as young boy ,every baseball season no matter how hard of a day at work ,he would come home and take and my brother Dave to the back yard and play catch till dinner time,then the radio would come on and our favorite Indiands would be on.I was lucky to have him develop me into one of the best little league pitchers to have played in Brook Park. He loved coaching our teams and even score keeping men's softball.Dad I will miss you everyday and every Indians opening days in the future thanks for being my hall of fame dad! Frankie

Aunt Annette, I send my love to you, Franky, Tracy, Nancy/Gary, Gina/Carl and to all of the grand children. I always appreciated Uncle Frank’s come and peaceful spirit. I found his memory to be fascinating. He was a walking book of statistical information, especially with sports. He would even remind me of my own high school softball stats that he read in the news paper years ago. Uncle Frank will be a family pillar deeply missed. ❤️

Annette and family, so sorry to hear of Franks passing. Frank was always a kind person. Amazed me how he knew my birthday and many others. His sports knowledge was beyond believe. He could tell you names , dates and scores. Frank was a very good man and always pleasant. He will be missed.

To Frank and family, my wife Nancy and I were very sorry to learn of Mr. (Guy) Mellott's passing. I was able to know Mr. (Guy) Mellott as such a kind man who always followed his son's and one of my dearest friends Frank's sporting events throughout the years; especially when Frank and I played softball together in the 80's and 90's. A quiet fan he was but he really knew the game as well as so many other sports. Frank always spoke so kindly of his father and all of the enjoyment they had together following the Browns, Indians, Cavaliers and Ohio State. A very devoted family man who was a tower of kindness. May God watch over Mrs. (Annette) and the entire Mellott family and provide them comfort during this most difficult time.
