Earl Fredrick Marmon


Earl F. Marmon, 80, of Anderson, Ind., passed away Friday, April 19, 2013, after a brief illness.

He was born in Zanesfield on June 10, 1932, a son of the late Maurice and Leah Hunt Marmon. He also was preceded in death by his brother, Kenneth Marmon; and grandson, Daniel Erickson.

Survivors include his cherished wife of 56 years, Charlotte Mindling Marmon; daughters, Amy (Dale) Erickson and Ellen Marmon; grandson, Ben (Patricia) Erickson; brother, Wendell (Polly) Marmon; and many loving nephews and nieces.

Earl earned his bachelor of science and master of business administration degrees at The Ohio State University, during which time he served in the U.S. Army.

After he and Charlotte married, they moved to Anderson in 1959, where he worked at the Delco Remy Division of General Motors for five years. He then worked for Fisher Guide Division, General Motors, and retired as the plant manager in 1987.

Over the years, he served on several boards, including Community Hospital, United Way, Anderson Chamber of Commerce, Anderson Country Club, Anderson Banking Company, Maplewood Cemetery Association and Junior Achievement.

He was an active member of First United Methodist Church, serving in many roles, including Stewardship Team member to Sunday School teacher. He especially enjoyed worshiping at Davis Park in the summer.

Earl was a devoted and loving husband and father. His faith in God, his family, and friends were what he valued most in life. He enjoyed the outdoors through golfing, fishing, walking the neighborhood, mushroom hunting, working in the yard and watching the Buckeyes play football.
