  1. Very sorry for you loss. I had worked a long time with Merv at Algo yard & CN never did I hear him say a harsh word. Ate his quail, had him tie his plane at our dock & every time we would meet we would start where we left off. I used to admire his knowledge of the outdoors & his Fin heritage.
    My father & Merv used to exchange language & he would call Merv Raw Haw as a nickname.
    He will be missed at our CN pension party & all other gatherings. Our deepest condolence & he
    will be in our prayers. RIP RAW HAW!!
