I had posted a picture earlier where Marlon and other OED friends attended a co-worker’s special event. I intended to share words to follow the picture, but the words simply would not move, still processing the passing of a friend with so much life and laughter. . . I am grateful for the time I’ve known Marlon, working in the same office area, blueberry picking buddy, attending Bogdan’s events, his playing a role in a play I had written for a work cultural event, weather and eclipse watchers through our great window view at work and boasting about our healthy foods. All of us are in agreement that the light that shined within Marlon glowed as great as the rising sun. Marlon is a “reflection” of what a great and beautiful world would, and should look like.
Because tomorrow is not promised, I pray that my today is like Marlon’s everyday - a real good person who sees the good in everybody. Marlon did not need to backtrack and make yesterday right for he was the same - kind, caring, happy, smiling human being everyday.
TO THE FAMILY, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU AS YOUR HEART HEALS DAILY. When our work group found time to share fun things about our kids, family and friends, Marlon simply glowed when boasting about his grands.

I have enjoyed working with you since the day I met you. You have always brought humor to my life. You were always very thoughtful and kind because you were such a caring person. What we had in common is remembering ppls bdays. You never forgot mine and I never forgot yours. I am devistated you are not with us anymore. You were one of a kind and I was privileged to know you and be your friend. I enjoyed our lunches together back in Metro. You will always be missed and never forgotten. May you rest peacefully and I am sorry you had to go so soon. Thanks for being a exceptional friend and coworker. God bless your family. Forever in my heart, Laura.

Marlon was a kind gentle soul. He always wore a great smile and he had a positive attitude. I remember the first time I met him...a sweet and adorable little guy and as he grew up he remained just as dear. I will miss Marlon's easy going loving spirit...Rest in the arms of Jesus Marlon...Always, Beth.

Marlon and I worked in the Salem Office back in 2002-2003. He will truly be missed. I'm glad I was able to talk to him right before I retired from the agency. It was fun reminiscing about the old times. RIP my friend.

I don't think I remember a time when Marlon wasn't smiling. Marlon carried an air of congeniality when he spoke.
Working with Marlon was always a pleasure. He added a serious tone when doing his work and was also very helpful to his colleagues. I enjoyed listening to his stories, along with his sense of humor and fair play. I think he had a larger than life personality, and he will be greatly missed.

I met Marlon watching Monday night football with some other friends. His
big smile and kind, genuine demeanor was always nice to see. I remember soon after my dad passed away Marlon was randomly one of the first few people I told out side of family. We were watching the Minnesota Vikings play and that was my dad's favorite team. So when Marlon asked which team I was going for I said "Vikings" and explained why trying not to choke up. Marlon instantly started rooting for the Vikings! He will be very missed and my deepest condolences to the family.

I worked with Marlon years ago. As mentioned in an earlier memory, Marlon seemed to remember everything about everybody. His love of life and kindhearted concern for all was manifested in his perpetually exuberant smile, that he could not wipe off if he tried. Marlon was, and is, a special human being.
