Edward Leon Marion, age 76, of Texarkana, Arkansas went to be with his Lord and Savior on February 4, 2021 in Texarkana, Texas.
Mr. Marion was born on July 2, 1944 in Detroit, Michigan to his parents Jack and Betty Marion. He loved fishing, golfing, and just being outdoors in general. He was also a Navy Veteran.
Ed was the director of Plant Operations at St. Michael Hospital for over 30 years and very instrumental in many of the hospital’s projects most notably construction.

“ The world has lost a friend, a pioneer in healthcare engineering, and a great mentor to many. He did things with devout purpose, candor, and resolve. He will be missed by many”.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his loving wife, Cindy L. Marion; and his brother, Stephen F. Marion.
