Melvin "Melbo" Cade

September 12, 1947 — December 19, 2023

Melvin "Melbo" Cade, 76, of Vidor, passed away on Tuesday, December 19th, 2023, at The VA Medical Center in Houston. A devoted and longtime resident of Vidor, Melbo's life was marked by service, love, and a deep connection to his community.


Melbo proudly served his country as a member of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam conflict. His bravery and sacrifice were honored with a Purple Heart, a testament to his dedication to his fellow soldiers and his nation.


A lover of the outdoors, Melbo found solace in the quiet beauty of nature. Hunting and fishing were not just pastimes for him but a way to connect with the world around him. One of his favorite activities was sitting by the campfire, where stories were shared, and memories were made.


Melbo had an appreciation for music that resonated with his soul, and he often found comfort in simply listening. However, his greatest joy came from his family, especially his grandchildren. Their laughter and presence brought immense happiness to his life.


Family and friends are invited to pay their respects at a visitation at Love and True Church in Vidor on Saturday, December 23, 2023, from 10:00 AM until 1:30 PM. A graveside service will follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Beaumont at 2:00 PM.


Melbo is survived by his children, Kristina Raley of Vidor, TX, and her husband Ricky, and Corry Raley of Vidor, TX, and her husband Daniel. Melbo's legacy continues through his 7 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandson. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, leaving a lasting impact on multiple generations.


May "Melbo" Cade rest in peace, and may his family find comfort in the memories of a life well-lived and the love he shared with those around him.
