Mel is survived by his wife of 68 years, Ann; daughter Maria; son Lewis; and grandchildren Nicholas L. Smiley-Kallas, Michael Gabriel Kallas and Anna Melissa (Aleksandr) Trbovich of Durango, CO.

He was preceded in death by his Mother and Father, Louis and Maria Kallas (Kallerogeropoulos) of St. Louis, MO. and brothers George and Milton.

Mel was a gentle spirit and native of St. Louis. He moved to Littleton in 2003 to be closer to his children and grandchildren. He served in the Army from 1942 to 1945, was wounded in action twice, and received The Purple Heart and three Bronze Stars for campaigns in Normandy, Northern France and Rhineland.

He was an active board member of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in St. Louis and served as President of the American Hellenic Veterans Association for two terms.

Mel was a private banker with Security Bank / Mercantile Trust for many years before retiring as a St. Louis County Deputy Sheriff in 2003 after a 27 year career. He was an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. “Every day is a bonus” was his favorite saying.
