Melvin C. Dillen, age 76, of Emporium, PA, passed away peacefully at the Good Samaritan House in Wexford, PA Friday evening, September 2, following a short illness.

US Army Veteran
Born April 4, 1940 in Utahville, PA, he was the son of Raymond C. and Mabel I. Semple Dillen. He graduated from BCI High School, Coalport, in 1958.
