Melquiades Nava Medina

Melquiades Nava Medina, age 50, went home to be with The Lord on Friday, October 15, 2021. He was the husband of Dora Tovar for 24 beautiful and loving years.

A funeral service will be held 2PM at Wilkerson Funeral Home on Sunday, October 24, 2021, with pastor Carlos Alemdarez officiating the service. After the service the burial and committal will follow at Woodland Cemetery. There will be no formal visitation at this time.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Dora; his children Juan, Christian, Mel, and Karen; one granddaughter Isabella Grace; his parents Juan Nava Padron and Antonia Medina Martinez; and his siblings Sabas, Isidro, Martin, and Oliva and a multitude of loving friends.

Melquiades was born in a small town in Tamaulipas, Mexico, he then came into the U.S at the age of 15. In his mid-twenties Melquiades met and fell in love with his wife Dora Tovar. In their time of marriage, they settled in Madison and raised 4 beautiful children. He was loved widely and deeply by many people from young to old. Anyone who knew Melquiades, knew that he was truly a testament of love, benevolence, and generosity. Melquiades will be greatly missed; he was someone who brought a light so great into this world that even in his absence his light remains.

Psalms 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints”
