J. Merritt Brundige, Jr., 89, passed away Sunday, September 27, 2020, at Home of the Good Shepherd.

Born on January 14, 1931, in Troy, NY, he was the son of the late J. Merritt Sr. and Catherine (Evans) Brundige.

He served in the United States Army from 1952-1954 reaching the rank of Corporal.

Merritt married Josephine Wallace on August 18, 1956 at Coila United Presbyterian Church in Cambridge, NY.

Early in his career, Merritt was a philatelist and a microfiche curator. He was self-employed general contractor for many years. He bought The Country Spot Restaurant in Argyle in 1981, which he operated through the 80’s and early 90’s. Merritt was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church of South Glens Falls, serving as a Sunday- School teacher, elder and deacon.

Merritt had an inquisitive mind and enjoyed figuring out how machinery worked and spent time in his workshop on various projects.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 64 years, Josephine W. Brundige, his daughter, Laurie B. Beck and her husband, Gregory of Lawrenceville, GA; a sister, Rosalind Bates of Cambridge, NY; his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

A funeral service will be conducted at 1pm, October 3, 2020 at the First Baptist Church, 1721 U.S. 9, South Glens Falls, NY 12803. Due to state regulations masks and social distancing are required.

Mike and I were sadden to hear this news. We extend our deepest sympathies to Jo and Laurie at this time. I remember fondly the first time they attended our church. I was so happy to get to know them. We have countless memories that include Jo and Merritt. We are very sorry for your loss but know you understand that he is in the presence of God. These days will be incredibly difficult and we will keep you in our prayers. God bless you.
