He graduated from Dixie High School, Southern Utah University, Arizona State University, and earned his Ph.D from the University of Utah in 1974. Merv was a prominent educator in the Clark County School District, taking a leave of absence to serve as an administrator for Aramco Schools in Saudi Arabia from 1980-1985.

Following his retirement from CCSD in 1995, Merv started a financial services business to assist fellow educators. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Merv served his community in many capacities over time and will be remembered for things like his crushing softball fast pitch, and his love for the mountains and his cabin.
