He was born on December 8, 1940 on the Azores Island of Terceira to John and Lilliana Mello. He was the youngest of four children. In 1949 when John was only 8 ½ years old, his father decided to bring his family to America for a better life with more opportunities. They traveled by boat to Ellis Island, NY then took a Greyhound bus across the country to Los Banos, California where his father milked cows. At a very young age he learned by watching his father to be the honest, hardworking, respectful man his friends and family knew him to be.

On June 10, 1962, John married the love of his life Connie Sue Gilbert. Together they had three children, Michael, Christina and Steven. Over the course of 60 years they lived in various places throughout California until settling in the Central Valley. It was there John’s dream of business ownership in the purchase of his first dairy was fulfilled. In 1978, he partnered with his brother Arnold and created Mello Brothers Dairy. After a few additional business adventures once they sold the dairy, John and Arnold partnered once again in 1989 with the purchase of M & M Corner Mini Mart for his final and most enjoyed business.

After the dairy business John was able to spend more time riding and enjoying his love for horses. He was a member of the World Cattle Sorting Association for many years. During that time he competed in cattle penning and cattle sorting where he won numerous buckles, saddles and various other prizes with the help of his favorite horse Poco. In addition to competing, John enjoyed trips to the mountains with his horses. Every summer he and his family would join friends at Clarks Fork for a week of trail riding, campfires and memory making. Those were some of John’s favorite times.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
