Merke, David Lyle

December 18, 1946 – August 10, 2023

All that we love deeply,

becomes part of us….


  1. OMG… the picture……
    I also was born the same year as this guy, but also, and really important, I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback…….same as his dog in the picture.
    Looks just like my ridgeback — Bennie — who passed away last year at 14 1/2 years old.
    Bless this guy and his trusted dog.
    Michael and Bennie.

  2. Worked with Dave for a long time. He kept everyone honest while keeping the s@&t moving. Adios, El Presidente. You done good!

  3. Think about you now and then. You were one of the best things that ever happened to me. Will be missed by all those lucky enough to have known him.
