Hello Everyone,

Today I am saddened to report that my father, Richard Merritt, passed away this past Saturday morning. My earliest memories of watching great films were with him and my brothers at my early birthday parties (when I was five). He and my mother would rent a projector and some movies (they were on film back then) and we would spend the afternoon watching the films of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton and Laurel & Hardy. We would also go to many of the film festivals in the University YMCA's Latzer Hall, Lincoln Hall, Channing Murray and McKinley Foundation. My parents were also instrumental in promoting a number of local film festivals (primarily involving German films) and "happenings" in the late sixties and early seventies. Those were the days that made me interested in film and led me to eventually open That's Rentertainment (and fill it with all of the best movies I could find).

I will always think of my father as a great man who inspired me and taught me more than I could ever express in words. I will miss him.

Geoff

P.S. I have put some pictures and a copy of the obituary from Sundays News Gazette here if you are interested.
