Francis Charles Merrell, age 59 of Edneyville, died Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the Elizabeth House. He was born April 30, 1958 in Lee County, Florida a son of the late Grady and Mollie Louise Gambrell Merrell. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Wade Nelon; and by his beloved dogs, Boomer and Rocky.

 

During his time spent at Autumn Care, he touched many lives and made many friends. His laughter and smile will be remembered by all. He loved life and was a kind loving man, often referred to as a big teddy bear by his friends, although he preferred calling himself, Mountain Man. He was a simple man who loved his family and his dog, Boomer dearly. He will be greatly missed.

 

He is survived by his two sisters, Vickie Nelon and Rita Darnell “Sis” Reid and her husband, Ken “Thumpy”; one brother, Grady “GB” Merrell and his wife, Kathy; by numerous loving nieces and nephews, and his dog Lil Anne.

His family will receive friends from 1:00 p.m. until 1:45 p.m. prior to the service in the church.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations in Francis’s memory be directed to the Blue Ridge Humane Society, 14 Towne Place Drive #130, Hendersonville, NC 28792.
