Melvin David Dimm


Melvin David Dimm, age 82, passed away Saturday morning, September 30th, 2017 at the Sanctuary in Dublin, OH after a battle with Parkinson’s.  Born December 8th, 1934 in Jersey City, NJ to the late Ralph and Ruby (Ballard) Dimm, Melvin was a devoted husband, father, and Christian.  He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Wanda (Emberton) Dimm; his daughter, Elizabeth Dimm of Ormond Beach, FL; his son and daughter in law, David and Teresa Dimm of Hilliard, OH; his two sisters, Nancy Hulett of Lexington, KY, and Sandra Taylor of Versailles, KY; four grandchildren, Charles, Vanessa, Stacey, and Dakota; ten great-grandchildren, and nine nieces and nephews.  After graduating from high school in Denver, CO and serving in the Army after the Korean War, Melvin did a brief stint with the railroads and then became a tool and die maker – a career he continued until retirement.  He also taught Sunday School for many years with his wife, and most recently was a member of the Fishinger and Kenny Church of Christ in Columbus.  A memorial service will be held at Fishinger and Kenny Church of Christ at 1130 Fishinger Road in Columbus at 3pm on Saturday, October 7th, 2017.  Please visit www.OhioCremation.org to leave the family an online condolence.

    We always remember Melvin and Wanda with great fondness. We were neighbors, and fellow believers in Lexington. I think of them, and smile, every time I drive by their former home. May God comfort you and your family now, and in the days to come.

  • Stan and Donna Sizemore says:

    Melvin and Wanda loved us well- we are so thankful for that! And, they even let us love their children! May good memories bring all of you some comfort as you continue your journey without Melvin. Blessings sent from your old Kentucky home…

  • Alan and Dovie Bohnhoff says:

    Two of the most giving people we know. We felt so loved by them and Melvin was such a devoted husband and father and friend. They loved Emily and Laura and I can still remember him holding Emily. He was a little nervous but did it anyway. We wish we could be with you on Saturday but please know we are praying for you all. And please give Wanda a huge hug from us.
