Louie will be missed greatly by his family and step-family. He was known for his wonderful sense of humor and ability to tell stories to entertain everyone he knew. He always called it "sitting around telling lies." He was a family man and could tell a story about everyone in his family. He loved to go to his grandchildren's events, from storytime at school for Granparent's day, to baseball games, Boy Scout events, surfing events, and award ceremonies. When all was said and done, his favorite thing was to sit and visit for hours.
Memorial and burial services are pending and are to be held at St. Joseph's Church and Cemetery in Crestline, Ohio.
Murfreesboro Funeral Home and Cremation Services are honored to serve the Marino family.
