To All the Marinoni Clan,
I want to give my condolences to you on the passing of Uncle Otis, who meant a lot to me in my youth. Some of the pictures shown in that beautiful video brought back many memories!
When we were very young, Uncle O had a little yard tractor, and would pull the kids around the several yards in our neighborhood, to our delight. We thought that was SO cool! As we got older, he joined us on camp-outs as Boy Scouts, and always grilled some mean burgers! Later on, he sold my father his "Po-Chawm" (one of the boats pictured), which we had for YEARS afterward, thoroughly enjoying our teen years on the water! He definitely had an impact on my family's life, and I'd like to thank him for those moments that made our lives a little brighter.
Love to you all,
Brian Marie

Uncle Otis was married to my daddy's sister and he did so much to show love to me and my brother. He taught me how to detail vehicles so well and would pay me and my cousin, his daughter Alicia, to detail his vehicles so we'd have our own spending money and taught us the value of a dollar. He would take us to school most mornings but not before we'd all sit down and read our Bible and daily bread. So much of who I am today is accredited to him and my aunt BB(Vivian Marinoni) They truly were one of a kind, genuine people and I'm so blessed to have called them my uncle and aunt.
