Marlin enjoyed being outdoors, gardening, hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling. He worked as a Quality Control Manager, but loved livestock and working the farm in rural Brooten. Marlin enjoyed tinkering and was very handy. His attention to artistic detail ensured that his log home was completed to his own high standards.

Marlin is survived by his children Grant (Liana) Fisher, Plymouth; Rita (John) Ward, Stillwater; four grandchildren Caden, Braden, Dylan, and Carson; his former wife Susan Smith; as well as many other friends and family.
