Merril was a good friend and father figure to me and will be missed. As a teenager in the 50's my car would be heading to the W1QLD home on Marcy St many evenings.

He ran the Civil Air Patrol radio net and would put me in as net control operator for the experience.I remember operating him cross band (CAP to 2 Meter) when I was 2 meter moble and he was Little Rohdy CAP moble. He helped me bulid my 1st 2 meter rig (2E26 )... he will be missed ... 73's de W1WUH

Merrill was a great man who generously gave the use of his home for FARC meetings. He als gave his time to help his many friends at FARC learn the ropes of ham radio.

Merrill inspired many of us to enter technical fields. He was a sage to many. He certainly made a difference in my life!

In the late 1960's my father Earl Cowan and his friend Marty Shaw belonged to Merrill's radio club and I started to attend. We had met Merrill through his nephew Steve Budlong. Well, my attendance at radio club was something of an anomaly being that I was (and am:o) a female. I got my novice ham license and was allowed to join the club. It was a great pastime. I met so many great people there.

The last time I saw him was about five years ago with Lori and Steve. We had a very enjoyable visit. Merrill was such a wonderful gentleman and mentor to so many. He was wise and funny and patient. I am grateful to have known him. The world is less without him.

My Uncle "Grandpa" Merrill,

When I was quite a young child I lost my grandfather Rhody (Merrill's brother), and had never known my grandmother Maude. Merrill took me aside shortly after Rhody's funeral, told me that I needed a "Budlong" grandfather and that he was the man for the job. Every time he or Louise would call and every card that I received was from Grandpa Merrill and Grandma Lou.
I am so grateful for the kindness and love that they shared with me and my Dad (Steve Budlong). I know my Dad would tell you too, that we are both better Budlongs because of it.

much love,
