Mendese "Mell" Leggett III

1969 ~ 2022 (age 52)


Mendese “Mell” Leggett III, passed away April 21, 2022.

He is survived by his two daughters Lindsey Leggett and Emily Leggett, his parents Mendese “Loran” Leggett Jr. and Susan Leggett, as well as his brother Neil Leggett, his wife Carrie, and their children Andy and Anna. He is also survived by several other nieces and nephews.

Mell was born in Macon, GA on July 31st, 1969. He worked as a volunteer firefighter and real estate appraiser. He would always do for others before himself. A true warrior throughout his life. In 2000 and 2003, he welcomed his two beautiful daughters, whom he considered a very important part of his life. He fought a long battle with organ failure.  The family asks that in honor of National Donate Life Month that friends and family register as an organ donor.

Mell was a loving father, brother, son, uncle, and friend. He was always the fun dad never the strict dad. He loved life, enjoyed fishing and being outdoors. He will be missed by all who knew him. He left an impact with every person that he met.

The family will hold a Celebration of Life at Bottoms Tree Farm located at 5880 John Burruss Road, Cumming, Georgia 30040 on Saturday, May 14, 2022 from 11-3. Lunch will be provided from 12-1:30.
