Merlin Edward "Ed" Fike, Las Vegas, NV.

Merlin Edward "Ed" Fike went home to the Lord February 19, 2018. Ed was born February 5, 1925, in Hopkins, Missouri, to Mary Myrle Mahan and Edward E. Fike. After graduating from high school, Ed joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served our country in both World War II and the Korean War. Following his discharge from the Marine Corps, he moved to Las Vegas, and was a resident of the state since 1948. Ed was the founder of Lawyers Title of Las Vegas and Nevada Escrow Service, a business he owned from 1960 to 1986. Ed entered Nevada politics in 1964 when he ran for office as an Assemblyman in the Nevada State Legislature, a position he held for two terms before he was elected Lieutenant Governor in 1966, serving in that capacity until 1970, when he ran for Governor in a close race against Governor Mike O'Callaghan. Although Ed left public office in 1970, he continued his involvement in politics serving as a National Committeeman for the Republican Party from 1980 to 1985. Following his last term as Lieutenant Governor, Ed became President of the Nevada Development Authority and dedicated a great deal of his time to serving as longtime President of the Boulder Dam Area Council of Boy Scouts. Ed was preceded in death by his parents; his daughter, Kathleen Butts; son, Michael Pullman; and his grandson, Ian Fike. He is survived by his wife, of 60 years, Joann Fike; children, Toni Rackey, Gary Fike (Mary), Gary Pullman (Beth) and Brian Fike (Kell); grandchildren, Jason Fike, Ertha Pullman, Orion Fike, Ryan Pullman, Paul Fike, Jonathan Pullman, Joseph Pullman, Alexandra Fike, Matthew Fike, Brittnee Pullman, Quinn Fike, Owen Fike and Gabriella Fike; and seven great-grandchildren. Arrangements for a celebration of Ed's life are currently being planned and will be held in the near future. As per Ed's wishes, his remains have been cremated.
