Marlin was a 1957 graduate of Buckhannon-Upshur High School and retired after 32 years as an insurance agent. Nature and the outdoors presented many opportunities for the long walks, hunting, and front porch sitting Marlin so greatly enjoyed. Beloved pastimes included feeding the birds, woodworking projects, gardening, and watching nature in his own backyard. He was a Methodist by faith. Following his wishes, his body was cremated. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 26, 2018, at 2:00 PM, at the Loudin family’s farm on the Adrian School Road, with the Rev. Robert F. Heavner officiating. Private interment will be held on the farm at a later time.
