Melbourne “Mel” Bragg passed away at home on September 13, 2017. He was born to Doyle and Inez Bragg on April 13, 1940, in Plymouth Utah. He met the love of his life in August of 1966 at the Johnny Cash concert at Lagoon in Farmington, Utah. They were married 10 days later on August 28, 1966, in Elko, Nevada; two sons and 51 years later they have accumulated seven grandchildren and five-ish great grandchildren.
Mel was a very hard working man. He was a fabricator and a teacher to both of his sons who have grown up to be very hardworking men. Mel served our country in both the National Guard and the Navy. In his later years, he discovered Reiki and his love for nature. He could just sit amongst the trees for hours. Mel left this world the same way he entered it.
