Michael Alan Merrick of Edmond, Okla., left this world on March 17, 2017. He was born in Seattle, Wash. on June 8, 1961 to Charles and Karen Merrick.
Mike was kind hearted, always putting his family above all else. He was soft spoken, but loved so abundantly that it radiated through him in all he did. He worked hard and stopped at nothing to make those around him, especially his children, smile. He was a wonderful son, brother, father, uncle, and grandfather, always patient and generous. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
Mike is survived by his two children, Justin Merrick, wife Amy and granddaughter Layla of Edmond Okla., Kati Moore and husband Clint of Oklahoma City; brother Patrick Merrick of Edmond; sister Christina Holford and husband Chris of Valparaiso, Ind., and his parents Charles and Karen Merrick of Edmond.
A service will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday March 25, 2017 at Cross Timbers Church in Edmond.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up with the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner where Mike volunteered for 28 years. Monetary donations can be mailed to Bank7, 1039 NW 63rd St, OKC, OK 73116, payable to Red Andrews Christmas Dinner.
