A man familiar to many Tulsa-area gardeners has died.  

The "Tomato Man", Darrell Merrill has been selling tomatoes for about 15 years in what started as a roadside stand under some trees.  

Merrill was diagnosed with cancer a little over a year ago.  He passed away Thursday night.   

His daughter, Lisa, has returned to Tulsa to help carry on her father's business.
