Obituary of Merrill Negus

Merrill B. "Gus" Negus, loving husband of Mary Ann Zachar Negus and son of the late Merrill A. and Ida Mae Negus, passed away June 29, 2014. He was a graduate of Niskayuna High School and served 9 years in the U. S. Submarine Service as a diesel engineer specialist. He worked for 36 years on the Delaware & Hudson Railroad as a freight engineer, retiring in 2004. After retiring, Merrill enjoyed volunteering on the USS Slater DE 766 in the Port of Albany. He liked reminiscing with his buddies at railroad retirement luncheons, and he loved spending time with his family and his three beautiful grandchildren. He is survived by Mary Ann, his loving wife of 49 years; son Andrew (Alissa); daughter Melinda White (George); and his three grandchildren, twins George and Leah White, and Avery Daviero. We would like to thank the staff of Ellis Hospital, especially nurse Linda on the 6th floor, whose concern and compassion was a great comfort to all of us. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the USS Slater Destroyer Escort Restoration Fund, Broadway and Quay Street, Albany NY 12202.
