Michael Scott Mericka

Michael Scott “Scotty” Mericka, 25, of Browns Summit went home to be with the Lord on Monday, March 8, 2021. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Scotty was born in Guilford county to Michael A Mericka and the late Cynthia Loye Dezearn. Scotty was an avid hunter and enjoyed pursuing duck, deer, turkey, and dove alongside his family and friends. With an unmistakable laugh and infectious smile, he could light up a room. Scotty was a tremendously family-oriented young man, and fiercely loyal to his friends. He was passionate about the farm he grew up on, Triple M Ranch, and worked to uphold the hardworking standards passed down to him from his Papa and father. Scotty enjoyed working alongside his dad, uncles and cousins building fences and barns around the community. Although called home early, Scotty’s presence will be felt forever, and the memories made with him will be cherished. Along with his mother, he is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, William Mericka “Papa”; maternal grandparents, Banks and Carolyn Loye. He is survived by his father, Michael Mericka; half-brother, Justin Dezearn; grandmother, Mary Mericka (Mimi); Uncle Jeff and Aunt Janice Mericka; Uncle Tim and Aunt Sandi Mericka; cousins, Blair, Tyler, Bryce, Evan and Wyatt Mericka as well as a large and loving extended family.

Went dove hunting at Randy Jones mamas house many years ago.. Shot a Pigeon and here comes Little Scotty running across the field and he wanted to know if I would let him have it. I gave it to him and the best I can remember he carried that Pigeon with him everywhere he went for about a week. Precious Memories is all we habve left in the end.. Rest In Peace Young Scotty..Richard Hartmann

My condolences go out the Mericka family. I had the privilege of spending some wonderful time with Scotty, We hunted and fished together. He had a sweet spirit, and was a gentleman. He was a compassionate young man and had good manners. If I could have had a son, I would have wanted him to be just like Scotty.
