Rod was born on June 2nd, 1969, in Plymouth, IN. He was the son of Janet K. Payne and Donald W. Merriman. Rod was a 1987 graduate of Seeger High School. He was a Warren County resident for most of his life. Rod worked for Mark Tanner burying telephone lines, then later found his god given talent of custom woodworking. After discovering this passion, he started his own business, Merriman Custom Woodworking. His work turned countless houses into homes. Rod always found a way to bring love, laughter, and happiness into this world and to everyone around him, his music being one of several ways.
