I didn't have the honor of knowing Marion, however, he was a brother in arms and proudly served his country. His military service is a lasting testament to his courage and integrity. Paul Norton USAF, Retired SMSgt Military Honor Guard

I never met Marion, however, he was my brother in arms, and a fellow patriot. The military service that he gave to this country was just as important as what George Washington or any other veteran did for his country. He was a true hero to his country. God bless him and may he rest in peace. Paul Norton, USAF (Retired SMSgt) Honor Guard at his ceremony October 27, 2018

Thank you for the notice. I was 10 when Marion and Jeannie married, and attended the wedding. My parents were Mike and Maxine Spencer. My dad was Uncle Rays brother. I loved going to their farm and playing in the hay mow? RIP cousin Marion
