1930 -2020

Our family and friends were so blessed 90 years ago to receive an incredible gift. Doc grew up in Roslyn, Washington with his sister Dolores and brother Don. He started in the Air force as a mechanic stationed in Arizona, then to Vermont where he met his beautiful bride Helen Sylvia Bevins. Married over 64 years, in their amazing Mukilteo home they raised their three children and had the joy of watching their five Grandchildren grow up. Doc was an Industrial Designer and Artist by trade. His art and work were displayed and awarded in numerous shows. Doc's gifts to the world were art, creativity, laughter, story telling, ingenuity, wisdom, and unconditional kindness and love. He was a "learn it all" and took great pleasure in reading, listening and sharing his findings. As he was loved by all, he will be missed by all. "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make" The Beatles Doc Merriman In Loving Memory

To Helen, Todd, and Laura,
I wish to express my condolences for the passing of Doc. It was always a welcome sight seeing him whiz passed our place here on the Speedway in his self-built car. You could tell he had a life force that ran deep.
Both our families share a similar Mukilteo experience. Families raised in this sacred place, from the '60's to the present. We continue to see in this setting what Doc and Helen did all those years ago. Family, love, nature, possibility. I know loss is hard. Cherish the memories.
Sincerely, Geoff Palmer

All the best to the Merriman family. Doc was amazingly talented from design work to art. He had a mind that was always creating the next thing and I loved having him tell the story. A true one of a kind. My thoughts are with Helen.

I met Don when I was in High School with his brother Don. He was always
ready to help us work on our old cars and would come by to say hello,
best regards to his family Jack
