Following an honorable discharged in 1956, Melvin enrolled in Minneapolis Vo-Tech to study upholstery. Not too long after, he became the owner of Kline Auto Upholstery in downtown Minneapolis, which he operated until his retirement.
In his free time, Melvin enjoyed fishing at his lake home in Garrison. “If his boat was on the water the fish were biting,” his obituary boasts.
