Melvin was a beloved classmate of mine. I called him the "baby" because he was so advanced academically he double -promoted and joined our class, that was at least a year ahead of him, previously. We talked over the years about things and we last had a class Zoom time the last Tuesday of April. It turned out that was our last meeting in this life. I will miss him very much.
Sherrell Hardy left a message on May 13, 2022:
In memory of Melvin Duncan. My Sincerest condolences to the family. Melvin was one of my managers at the Post Office. He was the best, kind, always pleasant, willing to listen, and most of all fair. Later as I attended the same church as he, I saw that he was a Godly man which made him the person he was. He will always be remembered. Debbie, Melissa, Little Melvin and the rest of the family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers ❤️

My deepest condolences to Debbie/family. Melvin will truly be MISSED. He was the BEST Supervisor/Manager I had in the U.S.P.S. He had a very very kind HEART.🙏🙏🙏💙💙💙
Tricia Curry left a message on May 12, 2022:
My condolences go out to Melvin's wife Debra and everyone impacted. My most fondest memory will be our new puppy Deuce who took a liking to Melvin. Deuce is 5 months old and over 35 lbs. Walking him was a huge challenge when we reached Melvin's house because Deuce would look for him and not stop aggressively running toward Melvin so he could pet him. He was uncontrollable! When Melvin wasn't sitting in his man cave/garage Deuce would still insist on running toward the garage/man cave anyway. I had to tell Deuce the other day that Melvin was no longer there. At least not physically. He will always be in our hearts. Praying for you all that the God I serve who is all powerful will give each of you strength, comfort and peace. Love, Tricia Curry i.e. your Union Grove neighbor.

Our condolences to you Mrs. Deborah and your family. We are very saddened with the departure of Mr. Melvin. When I told my daughter Sofia of Melvin passing she cried and said she will miss him because he was the best neighbor we had. We will miss seeing Mr. Melvin in his garage. We, your neighbors next door (at 3022 Paddington Dr) are here for you. If you need anything do not hesitate to ask for anything. From The Bueno family (Your neighbors next door).

Melvin "Mud" Duncan - my childhood buddy and high school classmate - was the embodiment of innately keen intelligence sharpened by wide travel and broad reading, soft-spoken compassion, resilience, and a knee-slapping sense of humor. You represented the very best from our neck of the woods in Eastern Kentucky was coal wasn't the only thing that was black.

Melvin’s mom Annie Bee and our mom Hazel Hudson we’re like two peas in a pod, especially after their mom Mary passed. We loved visiting Lynch Kentucky and were excited when Melvin was born. As the years passed our first cousin, Melvin became head at the USPS but never lost his humility and love for God and his family. We join with his many friends in praising God for a life we’ll lived. Deb, Mellisa, (Nate), Melvin Jr and family, we are praying for your comfort and strength.
