My condolences to the family. Marion was well respected among the Corps of Engineers staff as lock Superintendent for the upper river locks - it was a huge responsibility which managed well.
Anita, Teresa, Terry, and all other family members you have my and Kenneth’s sympathy in the death of Marion.😇🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Praise God his mind is clear, he can hear, and he has received his home in Heaven! Marion was a super nice person, friend, and co-worker and I’m blessed to have known him in all three categories!
Teresa, we are sorry about your dad’s passing. Prayers for you and your family. ❤️
I only met him once, that I can remember, but I was impressed with what a genuinely nice person he really was. I have always joked about being named after my uncle, Marion’s father.The country just lost a man of integrity. I pray that God will comfort you in the days and weeks ahead.
Teresa Minor is a dear, kind, funny friend who I love like a sister. She has Always been there for me and my late Gray Haired Mother. I will be there for you, too, "Binky." I'm thinking of you, your sweet Mama, Todd, and the rest of the family, and hope all of you find some peace.
We were sorry to see the notice of your brother's death. Deepest sympathy to you and your family. We love you.
Sylvia, sorry for your loss. I know how much Marion and Anita mean to you. Peace and comfort for the next chapter of your life without your big brother.
So sorry for your loss wish i could be there but i am very sick prayers go out to the family
He was the best brother you could have. He was a good God fearing family man. He was a great brother and a great friend. He was a wonderful son to his Mother and Dad. He loved the Anita who I call my sister so much- just shy of 65 years of marriage and a wonderful life. May God Bless all of us that are left behind.
