Everett (Ev) L. Melby, age 78, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at Venice Regional Medical Center, Venice, Florida.
He was born on September 6, 1931 in Northfield, WI to Lloyd and Gladys (Nelson) Melby. Ev graduated from Hixton High School in 1949. Upon graduation he joined the Army, serving in Guam for two years. In 1953, he began working at the former Sterling Pulp and Paper Company in Eau Claire. He worked there 38 years, retiring in 1991.
On September 5, 1954 he married Charmaine (Char) Shramek in Humbird, WI. Ev and Char made Eau Claire their home for 38 years before moving to Venice, FL in 1992 to enjoy their retirement and to escape the cold Wisconsin winters.
Ev loved singing in the church choir and had been deeply involved in the activities of his church and the Park where they lived. He was a loyal Green Bay Packer fan. In his retirement years, he became an avid golfer, something he enjoyed doing mostly every day.
Survivors include his wife, Char; his three children, Kim (Kimberly) of Plover, WI, Debbie (Dave) Polden of Eau Claire, and Greg of Jacksonville, FL; four grandchildren, Kyle and Kayla Polden, Keely and Kassy Melby; brother, Philip (Pat) Melby of Eau Claire. He is further survived by other relatives and friends.
Ev was preceded in death by his parents; and his sister, Sondra Yeskie.

A memorial service for Ev will be held at a later date in Venice, FL.
