On March 17, 2019, longtime Peachtree Park resident Bob Merrill passed away. Bob and his beloved dog, Suki, were fixtures along East Paces Ferry for many years, and it was hard NOT to know him if you ever walked or jogged the East Paces Ferry, Park Circle, Peachtree Dr loop. He loved to talk SEC football as a Bama fan (and former player for the Bear), but he also liked to chat about the news or just admire the beautiful weather. Bob loved this neighborhood, and his presence is greatly missed. Bob’s family named the Peachtree Park Civic Association as one of the organizations to direct gifts given in his memory, and the PPCA board has authorized the use of any contributions received toward the purchase of a memorial bench to be placed near the Gordon Bynum pedestrian bridge.
