George Crofut Merrick

May 11, 1942 ~ June 1, 2017 (age 75)


  On the evening of Thursday, June 1ST, 2017, the Lord called home George Crofut Merrick while he was at the Troy Community Hospital.  He was 75 years of age.   Born May 11TH, 1942 in Williamsport, he was the son of the late Luther and the late Ruth (Crofut) Merrick.    Throughout most of his adult life George was a farm worker, but in his free time he created beautiful rag rugs, many of which were given as gifts to family and friends.  He was a big hearted man whose friendly smile and demeanor  could light up the room. 

    George is survived by his numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.


Viewing will be Monday June 5TH, from 1 until 2 PM at Morse and Kleese Funeral Home, 94 N. Center Street, Canton.  A celebration of his life will be held at 2 PM.  Interment will follow in Beech Flats Cemetery.
