I grew up with Marion in Lenoir in the 50s. He was the pride and joy of Ed and Mary and an all around nice young man. Although I haven't seen him in years, he figures prominently in my memories as a young man on N Prospect Street. Prayers for his soul in heaven and for his remaining family and friends.
