Thank you for being one of my favorite uncles. Getting to play bass guitar with all of you at the farm. Spending time at your house as a kid. You taking my mom & I on a scenic tour of old family memories a few years ago. You were loved.

Our thankfulness with having dad in our lives. You were a caring loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather who will truly be missed. Love, hugs and kisses heading to heaven from the Hurtado family

It has been a long time but I still remember in 1955 Merlin, Warren Becker, Dave Hatcher and I riding motorcycles together. In August 1955 we took a trip to Colorado and Black Hills, So. Dakota. In the 70's & 80's I managed Tommy Gate and Merlin put four additions on the plant. These are the things I will always remember about Merlin. He was always there when needed. My deepest sympathy to Ronda and family.

My best memory is going fishing with my dad it's something we always did together. He was always so happy when we were fishing, we would go home clean the fish and fry it up! This was our special time together just the two of us I will always treasure those times together. I love you dad.
