Negus, Merrill SCOTIA Merrill B. "Gus" Negus, loving husband of Mary Ann Zachar Negus and son of the late Merrill A. and Ida Mae Negus, passed away June 29, 2014. He was a graduate of Niskayuna High School and served nine years in the U.S. Submarine Service as a diesel engineer specialist. He worked for 36 years on the Delaware & Hudson Railroad as a freight engineer, retiring in 2004. After retiring, Merrill enjoyed volunteering on the USS Slater DE 766 in the Port of Albany.

He is survived by Mary Ann, his loving wife of 49 years; son Andrew (Alissa); daughter Melinda White (George); and his three grandchildren, twins George and Leah White, and Avery Daviero. We would like to thank the staff of Ellis Hospital, especially nurse Linda on the sixth floor, whose concern and compassion was a great comfort to all of us.
