Marion was an avid waterman. He loved fishing, crabbing, oystering and clamming. He really enjoyed eating it also. He enjoyed NASCAR and listening to music.
His family is truly saddened by his death, gone but not forgotten. He will be forever missed by many. A service will be determined at a later date.
