Obituary for Marlon Haydon Merrick

Marlon Haydon Merrick, age 74, of Princeton, passed away Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Unity Hospital in Clarksville, TN.

Marlon was a Vietnam Army Veteran serving as a Green Beret Sgt. with field special forces. He was a member of the VFW and American Legion. All who knew him would agree he was the life of the party. He was funny, witty and could tell a story like no other. There was never a dull moment when he was around and the world will be a much dimmer place without him.

He is survived by two daughters, Heather Futrell (Darby) of Benton, Mandy Merrick (Sean) of Princeton; one son, Dale Merrick (Linda) of Princeton; two sisters, Sylvia Slaton (Charlie) of Princeton, Carol Traylor (James) of Princeton; three brothers, Jerry Merrick (Betty Sue) of Eddyville, Reggie Merrick (Diana) of Douglasville, GA, Ronnie Merrick (Becky) of Princeton; two grandchildren, McKinzee Merrick and Harleigh Merrick; two great-grandchildren, William Kelly and Riley Kelly.

He was preceded in death by parents, Lindsey Haydon and Etta Bynola Goodaker Merrick; wife, Cheryl Asher Merrick.

Visitation will be held from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at Morgan's Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 pm Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at Morgan's Funeral Home with Rev. Roger Felker officiating. Burial will be held at a later date.
