Marion was born May 17, 1933 in Rock Island, the son of Samuel & Doll (Darneille) Owings. He served in the United States Army during the Korean War. Marion was united in marriage to Doris K. Clubb on April 15, 1960 in Rock Island.

Marion was employed with Alcoa for 33 years as a slitter operator and was a member of the USW Local 105. He was active with the DeWitt Fitness Center for many years, meeting friends along the way. Never a stranger to anyone, he was a friend to all. He had enjoyed singing in his church choir and enjoyed gospel music. Most of all, his time spent with his family, enjoying bonfires and watching M.A.S.H. will be fondly remembered.

Those left to honor his memory include his wife, Doris; his daughters and sons-in-law, Kathleen & Don Lyon of Davenport and Liz & Jon Douglas of Parlin, New Jersey; his sons and daughters-in-law, Kenny & Connie Owings of Eldridge and Ed & Sally Owings of Williamsburg, Iowa; nine grandchildren; three great grandchildren; and his nephew, Nyle (Johanna) Ford of Greeley, Colorado.

Marion was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Juanita Kliner; and his brother, Dale Owings.
