I never knew a more gentle and positive man! Mervyn and I grew up together, often spending holidays with each other at Grandma and Grandpa Pepper’s or at our Aunt Pearl’s, when we were kids. Having moved from the area, we didn’t see each other all that often, but when he moved to back to the area, it was wonderful to reconnect once again. He will be missed by all who knew him. RIP Mervyn!
Your Cousin Carol

Condolence from Jerry &Linda Traquair on June 1st, 2022 6:33 AM

Mervyn and Joy were our ‘backdoor’ neighbours at the farm many years ago. We are so very for your loss.

Condolence from Marjorie Gibbings on June 1st, 2022 8:06 AM

Merv and Joy were great friends of Doug and I for many decades. I have so many wonderful memories of fishing trips, taking our girls to their place in Hensall (and Merv finding the tiny doll that our oldest dropped in the cornfield), and in more recent years, visits and meals at the Clinton casino. When Doug was ill a few years ago, he and Merv would get on the phone and chat every week and I always heard lots of laughter from Doug during those calls. Since both Doug and Joy have passed, Merv and I continued to chat on the phone regularly, in lieu of visits during COVID. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to know and love Merv and have him as part of my life. He will be dearly missed. My sincerest condolences to his family.

Condolence from Heather and Paul McCluskie on June 1st, 2022 11:39 AM

Heather and I would like to wish our deepest condolences to Murray and His wife and Marlene and Bill. Mervyn was one of my Best Friends since 1958 when we moved to the Winthrop area and hung around a lot together. He was an usher at our wedding. May God give you strength during this difficult Time.

I would like to offer my sympathies to the loss of Mervyn. It was a great honor to have met him and have such wonderful memories of the Winthrop area shared. I learned more about horse racing and soccer after our afternoon of visiting. Always appreciative of help, never took anything for granted. He was the kindest of people.
