Marlin--you were a special kind person with a big heart that will be missed. You were such a good friend to me when I was in Yakima and always such a gentleman. Some of my good memories of living in Yakima were being at Brads and you showing up with Justin to play with the kids when they were all little. Thank you for being such a great guy and friend to me and to Brad and for always being there for us. Anita

Uncle Marlin, you will be missed. Part of my lifes growth was from you. Helping with the hay, sprinklers, or driving the tractor all provided a foundation for me to grow from. I'll never forget the memory of hiking all night on the crest trail back to McAll Basin to see how the sheep hunt was. May peace guide you to the trophy hunting grounds you loved being out in.
