Clinton Merritt Obituary, Death – Today marks the passing of a magnificent individual who was a part of both our family and the global world. My grandfather, Clinton Eugene Merritt Sr., who was 94 years old, passed away in a quiet and calm manner this morning. He passed away this morning. My grandfather was a great, thought-provoking, kind, empathetic, and caring guy. He was the best grandpa anyone could ask for. He was the kind of person who would never engage in conversation with a stranger. He was able to hold a conversation with nearly anyone for an extended period of time without getting bored. He viewed the time he got to spend with his family and wife of 73 years as some of the most precious in his life.
I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with him, such as trout fishing, camping, driving around in his Model A, hunting for Easter eggs, listening to his stories, learning from him, teaching him about new technologies, and him requesting that I smuggle him sweets during our family’s holiday feasts. I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with him, such as trout fishing, camping, driving around in his Model A, hunting for Easter eggs, and listening to his stories. I will never forget how frequently he would ask me, “where did you get those pretty blue eyes?” knowing full well that they were a trait that he had passed down to me.
This is something that I will never forget. When I made up my mind to buy the dance studio, he was eager to lend me the money I required so that I could carry out the sale. He believed in me and made it possible for me to achieve my objectives by supplying the resources I required to do so. For me, the fact that he was my grandpa was a source of both blessing and good fortune. Even though I will never get over the reality that my father is no longer with us, I am grateful that he lived such a long life and was able to accomplish so much in it. I adore you Grandpa!
