He was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather, son and brother who brought much joy to each of our lives.  Time spent with “Pops” are memories made that will be tucked away in our hearts forever.

Merv and Phyllis lived in Neligh, Elgin, on a farm south of Oakdale, and retired in Tilden.  Merv retired after driving for Rutjens Construction for 20 years.
Many stock car racers and fans will remember Merv’s blue “05” back when he raced in Neligh, Clearwater, Creighton, Albion, and Norfolk.
Merv was involved in the Neligh Jaycees, 4-H, and was a member of the United Methodist Church.
He enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s events, spending time with family and friends, NASCAR racing, and driving the “Big Yellow Rig”.
