Regina Merrell (Nick) and son Christopher Merrell (Sharon) and his stepdaughter , Dawn L Teuton( Brian.)His 9 grandchildren, and 5 great children. And numerous Nieces and Nephews and his dog Tuffy and cat Scooter .He will be greatly missed as he was the cool dad that gave us our love of music , rode the fast carnival rides, let us get away with our teenage adventures, fishing and a  love for chocolate, enjoyed cooking his own recipes, He was a Nascar fan never missing a race on tv and trivia. We often called him  an old hippie after the song .He was also fluent in sarcasm , if he didn’t spread sarcasm aimed at you , he didn’t like you, but he did have a soft side and his advice and hugs will be missed ,  He served in the US Army with 1 tour in Vietnam, and an additional 8 years enlisted before becoming a full time Truck Driver seeing almost the whole country. Dad I hope you are getting to hang out with family and friends and get to meet Dale Earnhardt and listen to some great classic rock until we meet again. We love you dad and feel so selfish for wishing you were here but knew you were too tired to fight anymore. Love you Dad,husband,brother, son, papaw,friend. Until we meet again..

    I miss you so much . I smell coffee in the morning and think I will see you on the couch with your phone in hand tv on and coffee cup near by. I ll never forget your cbd adventures when I got you gummies for your pain. So funny. I love you and know you have been telling scooters love on mama for you. Tuffy misses you so much. I ll always cherish getting your green eyes, your sarcasm, sense of humor, love for music, and getting time with you esp the last 8 years. I know you really did love me. I miss you everyday.

    Uncle Robert,
    My Facebook BFF. My friend, my uncle, my patriot partner, I miss you!
    Having family with a similar sense of humor is the best and ours were definitely in line.
    You were always the cool uncle. The guy with the dune buggy who marched to your own drum. You were tough and strong willed but you were also a caretaker with an absolute pure heart of gold.
    Our family is missing such a large piece without you.
    Please kiss all of our loved ones ( especially Robbie and Mama).
    We will watch Aunt Jeanie for you. I love you and I’ll miss you always ❤️ AmerLou

    Uncle Robert thank you for being the "cool" uncle. You and Mommy taught me not to take any crap and being a smart ass. I remember riding on your motorcycle with you ( I still have the scar to prove it ..lol) you taught me that moon pies with peanut butter are the bomb! I will miss your hugs and smiles. Say hi to Mommy and Daddy for me, and we will all be together again !!Rip Uncle "Tommy Chong" Robert. Love you Ronishell
