Melluish Family

Billy Melluish passed away, quietly and peacefully with his wife Kathy by his side, on September 25 at 3:20pm after a year-long, hard fought battle with a type of brain tumor known as glioblastoma multiforme. 

Those who met Billy instantly knew he was someone they could trust and were warmed by his grace and smile. Known as the "life of the party," Billy lit up any room he entered - through his charm and wit, he always made sure all felt welcome and had fun.

This campaign was created to honor Billy's memory by supporting the continued education of his three children: Emmett (8), Helena (5), and Vivienne (1). The funds donated will go directly to Kathy and will be invested for future use toward educational expenses, including college tuition.

All donations will be greatly appreciated. Feel free to forward the link to anyone who might be interested in supporting the three Melluish children. If you have any questions, please use the contact information on this page.
