Tim Merrill, 55, of Wiscasset passed away unexpectedly on the afternoon of Aug. 5, 2021, at the LincolnHealth – Miles Campus in Damariscotta.
He was born in Bath on May 29, 1966, the son of Lloyd Merrill and Louise Stilphen.
He worked at Montsweag Restaurant in Woolwich, Lobsterman’s Wharf in East Boothbay, and 26 years at Reny Construction in Boothbay before becoming disabled. He did odd jobs mowing, plowing, tree cutting and whatever he could do to help someone in need.
Tim loved racing at the Wiscasset Speedway, playing in the dirt for Reny, four-wheeling, fishing, hunting, boating, and playing with his grandchildren. He also enjoyed traveling to Florida to visit relatives on both coasts. His favorite saying was “Just drive-er, it will be alright.”
