Melvin was born and raised in Surakarta, Indonesia to The Sie Hong and Nelly Suriadewi Marikangen. He then immigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he learned the language and provided for his Mom and siblings after his father passed away. He became a successful businessman in Brazil and subsequently in the US. Melvin has always placed the needs of others before his own, and most especially the will of the Lord. Only after taking care of his Mom and securing the best education for his siblings, did Melvin find the love of his life, Lourdes (Lolita) Gossler, whom he married and was sealed to for time and all eternity by President Spencer W. Kimball in the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Melvin dedicated his life to studying, living and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After experiencing a literal miracle, Melvin and his family were baptized in Sao Paulo, Brazil where he served as a Stake President and also a Regional Representative helping to establish The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brazil. Melvin and Lourdes had three children before immigrating to the United States with the vision of providing the best education and opportunities for his children so they could build their own families in holiness to the Lord.
Melvin is survived by his wife Lourdes Tedjamulia whom he has been married to for 48 years; his three children and their spouses: Steven (Christine), Genevieve (Aaron), and Patrick (Maria); his 15 grandchildren; and his siblings: Jeannie, Alvin, and Marvin.
