March 22, 1937 ‒ December 11, 2016
William A. “Bill” Marr, age 79, of Marengo died late Sunday night, December 11, 2016 at his home surrounded by his family.
He was born on March 22, 1937 in Albany, New York the son of the late Charles A. and Ethel Mae (Ball) Marr.
Bill met Margaret Little in Florida and they were married there on July 11, 1962. In 1969 Bill found work in north central Ohio and they moved to Marengo and have been here ever since. He was a great husband who loved Margaret with all his soul. He’d do anything for her.
He worked construction, owning his own business for many years. While he did it all over the years, including large scale renovations, his specialty was hanging and finishing drywall.
Bill loved fishing at their winter home in Crescent, Florida and would hunt “anything and everything” on and around their property in Marengo.
He loved to pick at people and had a great sense of humor. His daughter Cindy said, “he was as ornery as he was loving”.
He will be missed by his wife Margaret; their children Sheila Jeffers and her husband Kyle of Sunbury, Tony Marr and his wife Teri of Marengo, and Cindy McElroy and her husband Dusty of Centerburg; seven grandchildren Lizzie, Grace, Tylor, Trevor, Jaclyn, Spencer, and Adrienne; and two great grandchildren Oliver and Iris. Bill was an excellent father and loved spending time with his grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Private services will be held at a later date.
