Nicholas Mellon November 5, 1991 – August 7, 2013

Nicholas “Nick” James Mellon, 21, of Rifle, Colorado, flew to heaven on August 7, 2013. Nick was born November 5, 1991, in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Nick graduated from Rifle High School and was a current student at Colorado Mountain College.

If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Untimely death leaves a heartache that is unhealed. But, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Everyone, please love and hug your families “big” every single day, for you never know what tomorrow brings. Nick would agree, as he always loved, laughed, and smiled “big” and enjoyed spending quality time with close family and friends, especially his daughter, Halle Bear. His teddy bear personality, and kind, gentle soul will be sadly missed by many.

Nick is survived by his fiancé, Jacqueline Renee Daniels and their daughter, Halle Nicole Mellon, of Rifle, Colorado. His father, Micheal Mellon, of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. His mother and stepfather, Kristen (Goodrich) and Randall Tarufelli, of Rifle, Colorado. Two sisters, Keilah Mellon, of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, and Miranda Tarufelli, of Rifle, Colorado. Two brothers, Nate Mellon, of Rifle, Colorado, and Kameron Mellon, of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Paternal grandmother, Martha Gindt, of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. Maternal grandparents, Kelly and Binky Goodrich, of Rock Springs, Wyoming. And a multitude of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Nick was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Daniel Micheal Mellon; Maternal great-grandfathers, William Workman, of Fort Duchesne, Utah, and Charles Murray, of Provo, Utah; Maternal great-grandmother, Mary Perrine Hatch, of Vernal, Utah; and paternal great-grandmother, Erma Casada, of Vernal Utah.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established at Wells Fargo Bank, Rifle, Colorado.
