Mervyn was my Grandfather. He was a wonderful man. He married Dorothy Loflin on June 15, 1940. She survives. They had two children, Jean Leftridge, my Mom,of Barnett Mo, and Jack Howard of Hunnewell, Mo. They both survive.

Mervyn worked for Home Hydro Gas company in Shelbina for many years. Propane and propane accessories. He was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and Fourth Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus. Mervyn enjoyed all kinds of sporting events and his Ancient Age and 7up at 4pm sharp. I will always cherish the memories I have of going to visit him and Grandma. We didnt get to see them very often and it was very special to me when we did. Thanks Grandpa.

Mervyn died from cancer in the Salt River Nursing home in Shelbina, Mo.
