Merrill Jr., John A.
John A. Merrill Jr. 53, of Binghamton, passed away surrounded by his family in his home after a long courageous battle with cancer. He is predeceased by his mother Betty Ann Merrill and his beloved dog Spencer. He is survived by his loving wife Amy-Lynn M. Merrill; daughters Sienna, and Sarah who he loved with all of his heart: father John Merrill Sr. (Sandy); sister Betty Jo VanMeerhaeghe (Phillip); mother and father in law Jim and Betty Ann Zimmer; brother in law Jeremy Zimmer (Karen); as well as several nieces and nephews. John graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida. He earned a bachelor degree and worked for UNISON in Norwich, NY. He loved his Jeep, watching paranormal shows and visiting Cape May, NJ. He repaired electronics and I Phones, so nobody would have to tell their parents they broke theirs. If anyone ever asked, can you fix this? He would reply, I worked on 18 million dollar airplanes, yes I can fix it. Visitation will be held on Monday at the THOMAS J. SHEA Funeral Home Inc. 137 Robinson St. Binghamton, NY 13904 from 4 until 6pm. A Memorial Service will follow at 6pm with Rev. David C. Seaver officiating.
