I served with Merlin on Local 482 bargaining committee from about 1982-89. I believe he went to HS with my dad - Jim Post. Ran into him about 3 years ago at Jacobs Meat Market at Christmas time - had a very nice catch up. He was a good leader during a very difficult transition for the local. I remember him as a good man. My condolences.

I was a superviser at lakeview mill and I had the good luck to have Merlin work for me for at least 10 years. It was a good deal to have him work for me. Thank you.

We found out today that a fine man has passed. All of our love to the boys and Ann. Such a sad thing, but he is in heaven. Doesn't help much we know, but even though we haven't seen him in a while, he was loved! All of our love and prayers, John and Nancy.
