Also surviving are his granddaughters Allison and Kelsey Murphy and twins Kaylee and Emma Brasker and his siblings Marg Summers, Donna (Jerry) Hale, and Sue Allison, as well as many nieces, nephews and special friends.
Merrille enjoyed talking and never knew a stranger. He would go to the coffee shop where he was always known for a joke or one hell of a story. He had a passion for horses; he trained standard bred horses and raced them. He even boarded retired horses on his own farm.
