  • Marion was a great friend and he is missed…we spoke of him today at Euchre! He loved playing Euchre and he was very good at it. I dont think I know anyone any nicer than Marion was! Never had a bad word to say about anyone…He also was a great jokester…Miss him sooo much. R I P Marion!

  • Oh where do I begin? To talk about a wonderful Friend! He was lovingly called “Squid” by my late Husband (Bob) & I. They had lots of good conversations at McDonald’s every morning! Solving all of the world’s problems! If anyone ever needed help, Squid was always there! He loved his Lord….was never ashamed! Really enjoyed listening to gospel music! We went to several signings together! Squid & Bob loved playing Euchre together! I would revel at each of their smiles while playing along with them! I sure do miss those sweet smiles! I know they are up there talking about Ford’s/NASCAR & Euchre now! Squid knew that we loved him & we knew he loved us! It was a wonderful blessing to have known & loved Squid!

  • I can’t even begin to express the joy that Marion brought to my life the last 2 years. The best thing I liked was his smile. He was a very loving and caring man and I miss him a great deal, but I know he his in god’s care. My thoughts and prayers will be with the family on Sat. Love you all

  • Though s and prayers are with you in your loss. Will be thinking about you all on Saturday. In God’s 💘 love. Dick and Ilene.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with you during you time of loss, may you feel God’s arms surround all of you.
