Merlyn R. McConnell, a truly good guy, passed from this earth on Sept. 16, 2015, with his beloved wife by his side. Mac, as he was known to most, lived a life of honesty, integrity, and devotion to family, a friend to all who knew him.
Merlyn was born in Charles City, Iowa, the first child of Ralph W. and Bernice (Ortman) McConnell.
