Our sincere condolences to Brenda, Mark and Melinda and family. Mearl was a good man and a good neighbor. God rest his soul

Dear Family, I wish to express my sincerest sympathy to Ford, as they mourn the loss of someone incredibly special to them.

When I was young my Dad was tough for me to relate to. He was a police man in a very dark place and this left him in a hardened mind. After he retired...slowly, his demeanor softened and I had the opportunity to get to know him. We became father and daughter, we became friends. He delighted in picking on me. He started watching the Lions play, just so he could call me after every game and relish in their loss. On the rare occasions when they won he would call me to tell me they messed up...

Mearl was a wonderful husband to Brenda, a funny Dad, Grandpa and Great-Grandpa, and a friend to us at Bristol Church. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends. Rest in Peace.

So many great family memories, with Brenda and Mearl, aka Bumps, putting up with our tribe, even before They had their own kids. ❤

My condolences sent to you Brenda.. Big hugs and Prayers sent to you all.. He will be missed he was an very good man.. I remember him as an officer and through family..
