  1. My ex-husband and meril were roommates in 1980 and 1981. I met Meril in July/August of 1980 when he worked at Don Carter’s bowling center. He was a little quiet but always happy and cheerful. He loved bowling and enjoyed time with his friends brad west and Jeff Gorton. Meril was kind and giving and there when his friends needed him. He will be missed. Me prayers and condolences are with his family.
