Subject: The Passing of Bob Merritt
From: John Bondon
EBCHG member and sometimes hike leader, Diane, wrote to me last week to inform me that fellow member, Bob Merritt, passed away. I could not express any better than what she wrote, so with her permission, I am sharing it all with you below:
Bob was a great friend. Not only did he hike, but he ran full and half marathons around the world was an avid backpacker and up until last fall was a search and rescue hiker in the sierras. Will and I backpacked with Bobs group in Yosemite in 2007 or 2008, and the man was a pro. His wife of almost 49 years, Robin, also hiked on occasion with the EBCHG.
Our collective thoughts and prayers are with his wife and family.
