  • Lois and Family,

    We are truly saddened to hear of Marion’s passing. Marion was a very special person to all of us. Everyone is sending their condolences during your time of need. My GOD hold each of you in his arms while you walk this journey.

  • We will never forget the time we met Marion and Lois and their children back in Warren Ohio..and we played a game called PIT..wonderful memories throughout the years. Then a few years later when my grandmother was so critically ill I called on you to keep our kids and a few others all night while we stayed with Grama at the hospital. We will always remember the gentle, quiet giant of a man Marion was. Heaven’s gain is our loss.
    Lois and family, we love you and are praying for God to bless you in the coming days.
    Mike and Donna Adams

  • Our deepest sympathy to all! So sorry we didn’t make it to the funeral. Praying the weather will provide clear highways for your travels tomorrow

    Marion was a nice kind man. He was always the first I greeted in Sunday School each week. Missed him! Lois, you and Marion have a wonderful family. Lord bless you all through these days!!
