Marzelle E Summerlin II

NORTHPORT - In loving memory of Marzelle “Mark” Eugene Summerlin II, age 68, of Northport, Ala, passed away Tuesday, October 30, 2018, in DCH Regional Medical Center after a long battle with cancer.

He was a loving dad, grandad and loyal husband for over 46 years. He made a career for himself in the car business, buying his very first car at the age of 12.

He loved to cook for people, feeding stray animals and rescuing stranded motorist. He always smelled like cologne, black coffee and a cigar. His big heart far exceeded his gruff personality. To know him, was to love him.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Marzelle and Sarah Mack Summerlin and his brother, Van Summerlin.

Survivors include his wife, Angie Summerlin; his two sons, Tripp Summerlin (Bret) and Tanner Summerlin (Leigh); three loving grandchildren; Sawyer, Adelaide and Finn Summerlin; sister, Sheila Pate; and several nieces and nephews.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Sunset Funeral Home, a Dignity Memorial Provider. His graveside service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, November 2, 2018, at Jennings Chapel United Methodist Church at 4001 70th Ave., Northport, AL. The family will receive visitors at the site 30 minutes prior to the graveside service.

Pallbearers will be Tim Arendale, Todd Arendale, Paul Cioccia and Cody Summerlin.
