Merv Williams, the former producer and announcer at Standard and Astral Radio in Montreal who contributed to CHOM’s morning show and CJAD’s Trivia Show until he was axed five years ago, has died.
The news was shared on social media by his former colleagues, but the official obituary notice was published Saturday in the Ottawa Citizen.
He died Sunday, July 10 at the Ottawa Heart Institute. He was only 39.
A memorial service for Williams will be held at the Yves Légaré Funeral home at 7200 Newman Blvd. in LaSalle on Saturday, July 30 at 11 am.
I never met Williams, but he appeared to be universally liked by his colleagues. I’ll let them offer tribute through their posts here:
