Henry "Fred" Melendres, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, great great grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to all, joined his loving wife Marie and his two children Tommy and Marie in heaven on March 3, 2021. At 103 years young, Henry was a great lover of music and would often serenade his beautiful wife, Marie, of 68 years, with or without the aid of mariachis and was never without a dance partner when the music was playing. Henry was a builder and machinist who worked well into his eighties, never missing an opportunity to tinker, fix, replace or build something either in his home in Concord, CA or at his beloved Ranch in San Andreas, CA. Henry was a proud family man whose lineage dated back to the first pioneers of Dona Ana, NM in 1845
. Henry will be missed by his two children Henry Melendres, Jr., Sol Melendres and their wives Cathy and Cindy Melendres and countless grandchildren, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. His lineage continues on with 10 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 8 great great grandchildren.
