HEYWOOD MERCER, Jr. "Bo" Heywood "Bo" Mercer, Jr., 58, died unexpectedly early Monday, June 22, 2009, of heart disease. A long-time resident, worker, explorer of Palm Beach County, Bo was son of the late Heywood and Emily Mercer, and brother of the late Scott Mercer, all of Singer Island, FL. He is survived by daughters Emily Mercer Sampson and her husband, Steven, and Elizabeth Mercer Crespi and her husband, Arturo, all of Asheville, NC; granddaughters Calia, Nicole and Allison; sisters Karen in OR and Michelle in London, sister-in-law Jackie in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, three nephews, two nieces, including Marnie in Orlando, FL. Educated in law, business, and finance, Bo worked in Lake Worth, FL for Heywood Mercer Chrysler-Plymouth until its 1987 close, and then various transitory jobs in West Palm Beach, FL and coastal NC. Fun, often passionate, outrageous (or outraged) and a voracious reader, Bo enjoyed public libraries, ocean walks and wandering West Palm, engaging and helping friends and new people.
