Geneva considers honor for Merritt King
GENEVA – Merritt King, a D-Day veteran with a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and the French Legion of Honor, was a Geneva institution when he died at age 93 in January.
Geneva resident Colin Campbell said he wants a permanent marker to honor King’s service, not only to his country but also to the city.
“He was a genuine World War II hero,” Campbell said at a recent Geneva City Council meeting. “He returned to Geneva and ran a successful business. He was deeply involved in many community organizations throughout his tenure of living here. He was one of the longest serving aldermen on the City Council … and many other things I think people are not aware of.”
