Merle Lilly died at the age of 90 on Friday, July 7 from heart failure.  He was famous for his Scamp 19 with the dual axles, and for building his own Cessna airplane which he flew for 22 years.  He was one of the original Scampers at Highlands Hammock SP, SOI #9. Merle is survived by his wife of 63 years, Beverley.  He will be greatly missed.

Very sad

We will miss Merle. He always had a good story to tell and it was really interesting to look through his picture album.
