It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father, Melvin Henry Munn Sr. on Sunday, January 14, 2024 at the Dr Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital in Fredericton.


He was born in Hayesville (Tugtown) to the late Perley and Nancy (Lovelace) Munn on May 27, 1930. Melvin was the husband of the late Lorna Mary Munn for70 years.


Melvin was a devoted father to Gary (Elizabeth) Munn of Fredericton, Audrey (Oran) Furlong of Fredericton, Norma (Tony) Munn of Porter Cove, Alfred (Judy) Munn of Porter Cove and his daughters-in-law, Susan Munn and Pam MacPherson.


Pup was a loving grandfather to Nicholas (Jennifer) Furlong, Sarah (Brian) Gilks, Lockie (Chelsea) Munn, Greg (Jenna) Munn and Ashley (Andrew) Welton; a loving great-grandfather to Jeremy (Sara) Munn, Dalen Furlong, Brayden Gilks, Kinley Gilks, Jaxon Gallant, Brantley St. Onge, Josie Munn, Bruce Furlong, Richard Furlong, Andie Welton, Adelyn Munn and Jorja Munn; great-great-grandfather to Sophia Munn, Lennon Munn and Opal Munn.

Melvin was a woodworker by trade. He enjoyed making axe handles which were known to be the best on the Miramichi. He could often be found sitting on the porch in his rocking chair watching the Miramichi flow by, listening to music, especially the fiddle which he played earlier in life. He was always up for an adventure with his “kids”.
