Merlyn Green

Dear Del Monte Kennel Club Colleagues,

It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that Merlyn Green, a beloved member in our club and husband to fellow-member Susan for over 50 years, passed away on Christmas Eve following an illness which he so bravely faced.

Merlyn was such a caring and gentle man, always greeting everyone at meetings with his warm smile. His interpersonal skills were very genuine, and, whenever he could, he made sure to ask people how they were doing or how their dogs were.

As a long-standing member of Del Monte Kennel Club, Merlyn was such a committed and dedicated man. He served as our AKC Delegate for many years, faithfully delivering detailed reports upon his return from formal legislative sessions. Each year at our All Breeds Shows, Merlyn could be seen helping out on the grounds, working alongside Susan with setting up before the shows began and cleaning up after the shows were over.

I will always remember that Merlyn had such positive and encouraging words to offer, and that’s what made him an effective communicator. He will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Please keep Susan in your thoughts and prayers. I know your support during this difficult time will be of great comfort to her.

With deep sympathy,
Todd Harris President
