Melvin N. Maki, 78
We are sad to announce the passing of our twinkle eyed, fun loving father Melvin
N. Maki. Born to Arvid E. & Gertrude M. Maki (Sotka) 5/11/40. Mel loved his
Finnish heritage and was a proud graduate of Astoria H.S. in 58’. He received a
Bachelor’s Degree from U of O and a Master’s from Portland State University in
Business & Engineering, he was a master of numbers. Working with the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers (Dredging) and NOAA (Ocean Floor Surveying) had him
traveling all over the USA and out on the ocean, which he loved dearly.
He is survived by his adoring family in Portland OR, Helvetia OR & Clackamas OR.
A loving service will be held at 2pm, Friday 6/15/18 at Hughes-Ransom, 576 12th
St., Astoria. A graveside service will follow at Greenwood Cemetery, in Astoria (all

In lieu of flowers (because of our father’s love of the ocean), remembrances may
be made to the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria. “In memory of
Melvin N. Maki”.
