    After graduating from Lincoln Northeast High School in 1965, he enlisted in the Air Force. While stationed at Peterson Field (outside Colorado Springs, Colorado), he met and married the former Lois Doerr of St. Louis, Missouri at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Colorado Springs, Colorado on June 17, 1967. After being discharged from the Air Force, Merle completed an Associates Degree in Computer Science at Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs. Then, after moving his family a few times working with computers in hospitals, he completed his undergraduate degree at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa in December 2001.

    Merle and Lois have two daughters, Lori, married to Jeffrey Whalen and Jill, married to Matthew Schmitzer. Both girls are Colorado natives. Collectively the two families have blessed Merle and Lois with four wonderful granddaughters.

    Merle and Lois share a love for the St. Louis Cardinals (Lois has three brothers who convinced Merle this would be a good decision) and the mountains of Colorado.
