In addition to his parents and loving wife, Neil was preceded in death by his daughter-in-law, Lorrie Merrill; two brothers, Robert Merrill, Lynn Merrill and half-brother, Ivan Ray Robinson.
Neil was a friend to all and never met a stranger. He was a lifetime member of the Irondale First Baptist Church and the Irondale Masonic Lodge #143 for over 50 years. He had a strong work ethic and was contentious about his work, always ensuring it was the best quality. He enjoyed being outside hunting, fishing, farming and following his grandchildren around to their activities. He considered the Blue Haven Café to be a second home where he loved visiting with his friends and the Spier family. He took many trips to the South Padre Island in Texas with his wife Erma and considered them some of the most treasured years. His hard work ethic, love, friendship and dedication to his community will be greatly missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Irondale First Baptist Church Gymnasium.
