As the former editor of the Ironworkers' Retirees' Club I send both my personal and Club condolences to Marlyn's family and friends. Marlyn was one of the first ironworkers I worked with while working for Douglas Steel. He was smart and conscientious about the work we did on all levels and I appreciated that about him as a new apprentice. I also believe he was a very good man as well as a journeyman ironworker. I wish the family and friends well in their time of reflection. May God be with you.

To the Howe Family,

Marlyn was one of great Iron Workers from the Greater Lansing Area to mentor many of the generations that followed in his footsteps. He was a man of few words but he had a tremendous personality and truly cared about how to perform our skills in a professional manner. Those of us who had the pleasure to work as an Iron Worker with him on the job site left it better than when we started, "More skilled and more Professional". Our family will always have fond memories of Marlyn and know that our lives are better because of him.
Please accept our deepest sympathies,
Tim Nichols on behalf of the Nichols Family
