He was born in Pensacola, Florida on September 28, 1953 to the late Ford A. Mecum Sr. and to the now Joan A. Williams. He lived most of his life in Shelby Township, Michigan surrounded by family and friends. He was a great lover of the wilderness, and enjoyed spending time in Northern Michigan.

Paul Gramer and his staff were responsible for making my father’s funeral exactly as my mother wanted it. They were attentive to our every need. Their support was a source of great comfort at this difficult time.
