Merton maintained his religious upbringing by his family and was the link to all the family members who he loved dearly. He loves playing golf, which he did on his downtime.

Merton always found time to be with his family and friends during the summer months. He connected with most of his family and friends two weeks ago not knowing he would not be with them. He reminded them of his age and his birthday that was coming up very soon. He also wished them good health and asked them to keep in touch.

He leaves to mourn his nieces and many family members and devoted friends. May he rest in heavenly peace!
