Dear Carol & Family I was so sorry learn of the death of Merv. I am in Montreal convalescing, so was unable to attend the funeral.His sister Bonnie told me that Merv was in the Hospital so that day I and went to visit with him before I left town but he had been dismissed that day. I have known Merv all my life and my return to Mount Forest gave me the opportunity to reconnect with him. My mother and father were good friends with hi parents Dave and Marge The community of Mount Forest will certainly miss Merv and his contributions to our town. Know that I will always remember him and you Carol and your family will be in my prayers. Padre Murray

Scott, Lisa, Taylor and Troy - from our family to yours we extend our deepest sympathy on the loss of your father, father-in-law and poppa. I only just spoke with Merv at the beginning of November to collect the clothing to display in the Thrift Store Window and to think I won't have the privilege again saddens me. When I read the newspaper last night (upon arrival home from Cuba) I immediately thought of all the young children in and around town who's lives Merv enriched with his helpfulness and stories. Hopefully knowing that he is a legacy in our town will bring some sort of joy at this time of sorrow. Regards, Tali, John, Taija and McKenna.

Carol and family, I am so sorry to have heard about your loss of Merv. He certainly will be dearly missed. I always enjoyed having a chat with him when he would come in to the bank and also back when I was an Optimist member, talking to him yearly about the laying of the wreath for the Remembrance Day ceremony. What a fantastic day they had this year and it was well deserved. He certainly was outstanding member of the legion and will be missed.

Dear Carol and family, We will miss Merv's dry sense of humor and leadership in so many things in our small town. He was always ready to give to the community as in the Old Boys Reunion and the Legion to name just 2 of his many projects. He will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with you.

— Ruth Truax and Rick Young, November 22, 2010

Carol & family For once I am at a loss of words to say how sorry and sad I am at the passing of Merv. Just to know that there will be no footsteps coming down the stairs at the legion at 7:30 in the morning, no more of his special good morning greetings, no more history lessons and no more sheepish grin when his quick wit had someone walking away double thinking about what he had just said knowing full well that Merv had gotten something over on them. He will truly be missed as a Comrade, a sounding board, a friend. My deepest sympathy to all.

— Laura Kennedy, November 22, 2010

Carol we are sorry to hear of Merv's passing. He meant a lot to the Lions of Mount Forest as well as the community at large. He will be missed.

We are sorry that we will not be able to attend the service as we are currently out of country. Al & Donna Leach
