Junior T. Merilic
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
|Incredibly, it would seem that sad news has come to us once more. Junior Merilic, father of Pat Merilic Duncan ('62) of VA, passed away at home in Newport News on Friday, January 5, 2007 at the age of 82.|
From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 01/06/06:
..... I have learned today that Pat Merilic
Duncan ('62 - of VA) lost her dad yesterday, January 5th. Would you
mind putting this on your website? I have emailed all of the classmates that I
have email addresses for and informed them of this......
Sorry to open the new year with all this sad news. Guess that is what life is all about sometimes.
Thank you, Brenda. I saw the brief Merilic announcement this morning, and was afraid it was probably Pat's daddy, but there was not enough information to tell. Please extend to Pat our deepest sympathies.
