Melvin J. Quinn
Crewmember Association Member
USS Cabildo (LSD-16) Hospital Corpsman HM2 Onboard 1951 - 1952
Mel and Connie Quinn at our 2011 Reunion in New Orleans

We were deeply saddened to learn from his wife Connie that Mel passed away Saturday June 19, 2021 at age 89.  Paul has been a Cabildo association member since 2005  when he and Connie attended their first reunion in Washington D C,  altogether they came to nine Cabildo reunions between 2005 to  2018.

Before he served aboard the Cabildo Mel served as a Hospital Corpsman with a Marine unit in Korea during the Korean War and saw combat action.  He once said to me "well, that was really exciting ".  I am sure he enjoyed the Cabildo's sickbay much more.
Melvin Quinn was born 4/7/1932 and resided in Pawnee Mission, Kansas with his wife Connie. Mel and Connie also started a very successful electronic equipment business, Aegis Inc. in 1992.
