    I am a friend of Lisa and am so sorry to hear of her father’s passing. I will be thinking especially of Lisa but also of her mother, brother and nephew during this sad time—and particularly on Friday afternoon as Merrill is laid to rest.

  2. Steve Stafford Says:

    I had the pleasure of working for and with Merrill during my many years at Honeywell. He shared numerous life enriching stories with me about his experiences at Bendix which made for some interesting information. He and I often would walk the plant together enjoying each other’s company just to get away from the rat race. He was a true friend. Thanks to his family for sharing such a nice man with the rest of us. He could always bring a smile to my face. God bless his family, God bless Merrill.
