Daniel Russell Melville
1936 - 2018
On January 5, 2018, Daniel Russell Melville departed from the earthly, to enjoy eternal life and take refuge in the hands of the Lord.
He was born in Salinas California but when he was 3 months old his family moved to Santa Barbara, where he lived for the rest of his life.
Danny's creativity knew no bounds -- from making childhood kites for himself and his friends to building and landscape design later on.
He left an indelible legacy in the lives all who knew him.
He is survived by his beloved wife Ann, loving daughter Julie, four wonderful grandchildren Jordan, Keylin, Avelynn, Bryndan, and all the friends who will miss him dearly.
We know that Danny is now in the best hands, but he will live forever in our hearts.
A memorial service for Danny will be held on February 24, 2018 at 10:00 A.M., at San Roque Catholic Church, 325 Argonne Circle, Santa Barbara CA.
