Dorothy was my friend and moms dear friend. They lived across the street from us as long as I can remember. Justus, his son, dated my sister in high school. What a wonderful and loving family. I started my flying lessons because of him. He would say if you want something you better do it as long as you can. It’s sad to read this obituary, I am now the age of him went I went off to nursing school. To the family, I am so very sorry for you loss. God bless him for his service, I salute him? I am an old army nurse

I knew Justus when I was in Jr High & High School in the late 50s-60s. He taught me how to properly build and trim a model airplane so it would fly well. He used to take me to model plane contests up near Cleveland in his 1957 silver Buick convertible. The more he BSed, the faster he drove and by the time we got to Cleveland we were going over 90. Merk was a gifted modeler, patient teacher, and good friend.
