Daniel Mercer Bio
Daniel Mercer lost his courageous battle with cancer on Monday, May 29, 2006. He would have been a 2006 graduate of Franklin Community High School. An athlete and avid outdoorsman, Daniel participated in football, wrestling, and baseball. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing. Daniel was a member of National Honor Society. He was an outstanding athlete who was a state-ranked wrestler, honorable mention all-state in football, and a Division I talent in baseball. Daniel was truly one of a kind. He possessed a unique blend of intelligence, talent, and wit that was uncommon in someone so young. He had the ability to succeed at extremely high levels irrespective of his chosen field of endeavor. He had the type of ability and charisma that could have allowed him to succeed in almost any arena. He lit up the room when he entered. People took notice, they couldn't resist. He had that special something that made him irreplaceable. In honor of their late son, Jeff and Pam Mercer of Franklin have established the Daniel P. Mercer Family Fund. The fund supports financially the "Set a Good Example" awards given each year at both Franklin Community High School and Franklin Community Middle School. In addition, the fund sponsors special projects such as Make a Wish trips and the creation of a children's book "Common Ground" which has been distributed to schools, churches and hospitals free of charge.
