Ray Merry and wife Christine

Name: Ray Merry

Job: Director of Environmental Health for Eagle County

Lives in: Eagle

In high school I was… Either playing sports or cruising around the small town of Dell Rapids, SD.

If I was a T-shirt, I would be (fabric, color, any print?)… A reversible cotton psychedelic tie dye on one side and plain white tee on the other.

What’s the best thing about your town? The small town atmosphere and the awesome people that come with it.

The best thing about my job is… Being around the smartest and most dedicated people who want Eagle County to be the best place on the planet.

As a kid, I always… Loved being outside riding my bike all around town. It was a pretty cool John Deere Schwinn.

If I could be any superhero, I’d be… My Dad. His super powers came from his mind and heart without anyone really noticing.

If I was given a million dollars, the first thing I’d buy is… A trip to somewhere warm with a golf course
