Melvin Cates Daniels passed away peacefully while sleeping at Southpark Meadow in Austin, Texas on September 27, 2012. His wife preceded him in death October 24, 2011. He is survived by two daughters Linda and Angie and one son Melvin, Jr. and a granddaughter Dominique. He is also survived by his older siblings sister Margret, brother Albert, sister Wilma, also by four nieces and three nephews.

Melvin was born in Tyler, Texas on December 30, 1941. He graduated from Emmett Scott High School. He then enlisted in the United state Air Force, and after completing basic training he was stationed in Sumter South Carolina where he married Bernice Monroe, his wife of some fifty years.

His Air Force career provided him with some very interesting experiences. These included duties in Vietnam, Thailand, Italy, Philippines and numerous other places while serving his country for 28 years in a military uniform. In those years he received all the awards and ribbons that the government issued, and some personal awards earned by only him. He also was promoted to the highest rank that can be achieved if you are enlisted personnel.

! SPECIAL FOOTNOTE! His expert capabilities were noticed by the American top government defense department and he was detached from the Air Force for about three years and worked for that department as the crew/maintained chief on a aircraft that only very few people knew existed, THE SR-71 BLACKBIRD. After military service he was hired as the transportation manager for the University of Texas until he retired in 2009.

He gave from his heart, financial assistance to all his relatives whenever he knew they needed assistance.

His membership to St. James Missionary Baptist Church was a very happy time for him and he was very active in this church. The last thing that made him very happy was when St. James made him a deacon.
