I was greatly saddened to hear of Fr. Marian’s passing. I will miss his long, informative Christmas letters detailing his recent travels, daily works, and health updates. His sign-off was always “stay holy!”.

I last saw him at his 50th Jubilee in Peoria, IL in June, 2007. Oh how I enjoyed seeing him! His faith will continue through the lasting impression he left on his parishioners far and wide.

Fr. Marion led by example. He will be sorely missed.
