  6. I am so saddened by Marion’s passing. The best friend we could ever had. Marion had so many friends — a friend to all. He was such a likable man. He was kind, humorous and always willing to lift a hand to help his friends and neighbors. My two girls remember him so well since Marion and Sue would come to our house often. He was one of my family’s best friends in the late 70s and early 80s. I pray that God will give the children and relatives comfort in this time. Rest in peace Marion.

  7. Sad we will not be able to attend due to the distance. We were so blessed to have known Marion! He was such a kind and funny person and fit so well at our dance studio. Everyone just loved him and we will miss his smiling face! It’s so great reading all these great memories of him. Prayers to his son & daughter and their families!
