Merrill Roberts of Pittsfield, MA died unexpectedly on Tuesday, September 17 at the age of 72. He was predeceased by his wife, June Waldman. For many years, before his retirement, Merrill was a middle school science teacher in the Pittsfield Public School system. For most of his adult life Merrill engaged in rigorous exercise enjoying hours of running through the streets of Pittsfield. His joy grew over the years into ultra marathon competition in which he would run in races of as much as 24 hour durations.
Merrill and June enjoyed jazz clubs, the theater and the various cultural opportunities offered them in their Berkshire community. After June’s death, Merrill volunteered at local theaters and cultural venues as both docent and usher. In his later years, when running outdoors was no longer practical, Merrill found the camaraderie of his local fitness center to be one of his daily pleasures. He was also an avid pool player.
Merrill is survived by his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Dr. Linda Waldman and Rabbi Hesch Sommer and his niece and nephew Leah and Elvys Contreras and their children, Kaleb and Luna.

I only learned of Merrill's death yesterday. I loved his wife June, his father Isadore, (Iggy), and still living, his estranged younger brother Neil, who has been homeless in NYC for 6-1/12 years. Yes, Merrill has a brother, though his name was omitted in the obituary "survivors." Please send loving prayers to Merrill's brother, Neil. Peace.

My deepest sympathy to Merrill's family. Just last Saturday I was a volunteer with him at a show and we spoke about his sciatic pain.
I would often run into Merrill at a local restaurant and we would share each other's company. He always had a wonderful smile and a twinkle in his eye. He will be missed.
