Carl E. Marston
Carl E. Marston, 77, was called home to be with the Lord on Friday (Dec. 30, 2011).
He was born Sept. 20, 1934, to the late Lester and Myrtle (Heineman) Marston. He was a lifelong resident of Delaware County and was a member of and served as a trustee at Scioto Valley Christian Union Church. He retired from Manor Care Nursing Home, Westerville. Throughout his life, he worked at several places including Valves & Presses, The Flxible Company, Rockwell and McDonnell Douglas. He also managed Burger Chef and owned Dairy Creme. He served in the Ohio National Guard from 1952 to 1955, being discharged with the rank of sergeant. He enjoyed gardening, fishing, and was captain of Dad’s Last One Charter Service on Lake Erie. Spending time with family, church and friends was important to him, especially his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren; they were the true joy of his life.
