Preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Marion and sister, Jean Masters.

Friends may call Thursday from 5-7 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Samaritan’s Table c/o CommQuest.

Mr. Marion was a wonderful roofer. Our family has used his services for years. Whenever we had a roofing problem we called him and reccomended him to others. We knew we could trust him and his work. His kind of work ethic is not seen much anymore. I offer my sympathies to his family for the loss of such a fine man.

If someone were to ask me, what if anything would keep you from being at Charlies funeral. The only thing That I could possible think of would be if something were to happen to a member of my own family.  And that is sadly what did happen. my wife Darlene who has been batteling cancer for two years passed away on Apr 10th at 4:45 pm. No sooner than that bad news hit me , I then learned that charlie had died just a matter of hours before my wife passed.  The odds of that happening seem incredible to me as I sit here with greif raining down on me from 2 sources. All those roofs we put on back in the day we were working for Big Chas my grandfsather and no 2 people on earth have had as much influence on me as those  2 guys did. Im certainly goin to miss Uncle Charlie , Aunt Dot . I guess I'll have to go to North Lawn next time I come op To Ohio.  Back in the old days me & charlie did the slate repair on the big house thats on the property of North Lawn. 90 degrees , hot as hell , hanging off two roof ladders all day for 2 days. But if I could do it again with him , I would be happy as hell to see him one more time.  I loved Chas B as much as my own parents. Till we meet again ............

Charles thank you for all the great memories with you and Dorthy

Sorry for yur loss Robin and family I know he meant the world to you and you were there for him

I worked with my grandpa all my life I'm going to miss him dearly
