E. Melvin Bliss
(July 11, 1940 - January 22, 2010)

E. Melvin Bliss, 69, passed away on January 22, 2010 at KU Medical Center.

Mel was born July 11, 1940 in Nevada, MO.

He lived most of his life in greater KC, but also lived in Michigan, Illinois, and southeast Kansas.

He retired from the Boy Scouts of America as a District Executive and spent many years as a Southwestern Bell Account Executive.

Mel's total commitment to the Boy Scout's oath "…to do my best to do my duty to God and my Country" was evidenced by his active lifelong roles of Boy Scout, Eagle Scout, Scout Master and District Executive.

He functioned as the patriarch of more than just his immediate family and welcomed the opportunity to serve as handy man to anyone in need. Mel lived for family gatherings and helping others. He had "contacts" all over the country.

Mel loved to dance, play cards, and attend local sporting events.

He devoted many hours to the Masons, Arrarat Shrine, Jaycees, Rotary Club, and Kiwanis.

Survivors include his son, John Bliss (Lisa), daughters, Melanie Huffman (Brian) and Amy Dill (Bob), five grandchildren, Joshua, Johnathon, Jessica, Jordan, and Abby Sue, brother, Glenn Ray Bliss and sister, Sherri Carver.
