A San Luis Obispo High School math teacher who died earlier this year will be remembered Sunday at Vineyard Dog Park in Templeton.
The public is invited to the 9:30 a.m. dedication of a new park bench in his honor.
David Melton, 46, lived in Templeton with his wife, Susanne, and three young daughters. He died of a heart attack in March while in Southern California with his family.
He was also the Vineyard Estates Home Owners Association president and a longtime supporter of the park, located at Semillon Lane and Vineyard Drive.
The bench was paid for by Melton’s neighbors and installed by Parks for Pups volunteers. Neighbors are also donating to the Melton family college fund.
