Cheyenne

Michael Dean Merrill, known for his humor and charisma, passed away the morning of March 11 at his home in Cheyenne Wyoming. Born in Rawlins Wyoming on August 31, 1990, Michael leaves behind a legacy filled with cherished memories and a vibrant personality that touched the lives of many.

Those who knew Michael will remember him for his big heart and unwavering willingness to go above and beyond for others. His protective nature towards his loved ones was unmatched, leaving a lasting impact on all fortunate enough to have him in their lives. Michael's sense of humor, quick wit, and infectious smile could light up any room, complemented by his exceptional talent for giving the warmest bear hugs.

A true music enthusiast, Michael's playlists spanned across every genre imaginable, a passion that brought him immense joy. His love for dogs, tattoos, sports – especially his favorite team, the LA Dodgers – and above all, his devotion to family and friends showcased the depth of his character and the values he held dear.

Among Michael's proudest accomplishments was his success in the oil field, reflecting both professional dedication and personal growth. However, above all else, he was proud of his son, embodying love in its purest form.
