He then moved to Houston, where he went to work for his cousins at Information Network International, a record and electronic information management firm from which he retired in 2014.

He was preceded in death by his father, George R. Mercer.

Survivors include one daughter, Colleen Martin, and her husband, Mat; granddaughters, Emily and Daytona Martin of Bella Vista, Ark.; his mother, Marlys Mercer of Hinsdale; a brother, Gary Mercer and his wife, Barb, of Shelby; a very special cousin, Barbara Mercer; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
