Jassman, Melvin Stanley
November 17, 1939 – November 18, 2019

Mel was born on the family farm near Mendham, SK to parents Elsie and Ted Jassman. He moved with his family to Three Hills, AB where he attended the public school and was involved in many sports. Mel married Arla Sollberger July 11, 1964, residing in Mayland Heights for 35 years. He worked for Arpis Industries for 30 years, teaching many young people the plumbing trade.

Mel and Arla enjoyed many years camping with family in the Sundre area. His last few years were spent being part of the Rosewood Resort family near Sundre.

I have so so many wonderful memories of Mr Jassmin. One that stands out is Nela, Brian and I riding in the back of his truck all the way to the Shuswap to go camping for a week. Your home was my second home and Mr Jassmin and the whole family always welcomed me with open arms and still do to this day. My heart broke when I heard the sad news but I am very happy that he is no longer suffering. I pray that God draws you close to him over the nexts weeks/months and allows all the wonderful memories you hold in your heart to comfort you. When the nights come and the hurt is so great I pray God wraps his loving arms around you and holds you tight. You all mean the world to me!

I remember Melvin and his Edsel car, so proud, we Trochu girls dated the Three Hills guys. Arla was lucky to marry this great guy.

Dear Arla and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Mel's passing. We know the past year has been most difficult for all of you. He was blessed to have such a loving family. Hold fast to cherished memories of your times together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We are sorry we are unable to be at the service tomorrow but know that we will be thinking of you.
With love,
Garry and Vicki Wishart
