Life Story for Merle Machmiller

Merle  Machmiller
MERLE ORVILLE MACHMILLER.
Merle was born on September 1, 1925 in Bristol, South Dakota. He passed away on March 26, 2017. Merle grew up working on the family farm before he moved to Portland, Oregon to work on warships.

He joined the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1944. He was honored with the Good Conduct Medal, Victory Medal and American Theater Ribbon. Merle returned to Bristol where he met and later married the love of his life on September 30, 1949. Merle and Irene were married for 67 years before they passed away only 31 days apart.

Merle worked as a gunsmith and tool and die maker. He loved working in his workshop making gun and car parts while also restoring a 1937 Cord Automobile. Merle was a quiet man with a strong dedication to his work and family.

His love and devotion for Irene was always evident and continues to permeate as his legacy. Merle is survived by daughter Renee, husband Tom, son Wayne, wife Terese and granddaughters Lauren, Kali, Genneva, Aunika and Simone.

There will be an interment ceremony for Irene and Merle on Thursday, April 27th at 10:45 at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery, 10100 Horseshoe Bend Rd., Boise, ID.

A memorial service will be held at Church of the Bigwood, in Ketchum, on April 29th. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Hospice and Palliative Care of the Wood River Valley.
