In fond memory of Milton (Mel) Raymond Studer: 1941-2021

Information that was accidentally left out. Milton (Mel) Raymond Studer traveled with our Lord to his home in Napavine with his family on November 11, 2021. He was born in Vancouver, Washington, in the summer of 1941, to Alfred and Edith (Babe) Studer. He attended school in Winlock, where he met his high school lover, Sharon Thomas. They were married for 57 years. They stayed in Winlock until 1991 when they settled in the town of Napavine. After graduating from high school, Mel worked at the Winlock Hatchery, then as a substitute for Longview Fiber for six years, and for the Napavine Veneer Mill until it closed.

From 1965 he worked for a year at Weyerhaeuser Choker Setter, then for 21 years as a lumberjack and faller. During this time he saw the Fawn Lake Fire and the May 1980 eruption of Mount St Helens. Fortunately, he and many others had the day off. He then worked in various locations including Zepp, Bill Foster and Pete Rushton. Mel retired in 2007, but then returned for six years for Bill Foster, Brian Talbot, B&M, Knoll Brothers, Doug Coleman and most recently Northfork before finally retiring.

In death he is preceded by his father Alred, his mother Babe, his wife Sharon and his eldest son Brent. He leaves behind his siblings Gary and Sharon Studer, Randy and Judy Studer, Sherri (Ken) Condon, Sheila Studer (Ed Sedlak) and Jason and Susi Studer; his children Rita (Dennis) Anderson, Von (Posey) Studer, Bridgitte (Howard) Nizon, Andra (Ron) Guenther and Carmen (Branden) Willson; and 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
