Memories & Candles
I met Marlin about 30 years ago with the St. Charles Radio Club but have been away from the area 20 years.
Many evenings we chatted on the radio.
I always found him a kind and gentle man without malice.
Now, my heart is heavy remembering.
Resi in peace my Friend.

My most sincere condolences to Marlin's family and dear friends as you deal with his passing. We worked together several years at the Kirkwood School District and I always knew him to be a gentleman. Your shared memories are heart warming and very telling of what a good man he was.

Marlin visited the Warrensburg Area Amateur Radio Club in 2003 and gave a technical presentation to the club members. He and Barb drove through Warrensburg almost every month on their way to the farm visiting on the radio with many hams (amateur radio operators) along the way. He was a good friend and will be missed. A final 73, Marlin - WA0CKO SK (Silent Key)

Marlin and I went to school together starting the 3rd grade through the 12th.
Will always remember him as one of the true gentlemen of the school.
I am sorry for your loss of
Husband, Father, and Grandfather; am praying for you and your family.
Had not got to visit with him since our graduation and he will be missed at our 50th class reunion

This has been a shock as it has for you I am sure. All of you are in our prayers. Marlin and I went to school together I graduated a year ahead of him. We did not meet again until 1966 when we spent a weekend together over in Germany in the fall of 1966. I did not see Marlin again until years later when he would come home to Appleton. I always looked forward to seeing him. I guess
