As I mentioned to you Jennifer, I witnessed Merv’s hole in one,, I suggested he put the ball away as a keep sake,, he did not think it necessary but he did,,later asked how he should mount it so as to display it…. Merv always showed up for Friday morning breakfast and golf,,,He had his days when he was a “good” golfer, he always offered tips to reduce our score,, He was a quiet individual who was well liked…Brian Hughes

Mervyn's family

Sorry to hear about Merv's passing...I worked with Merv at MTO in New Liskeard at the Construction HWY projects in the early 1990's.
Merv was a great supervisor and I remember he was starting to play golf and starting to master his golfing skills.
My condolences...
