Mickey Lee Marble

January 14, 2022

Mickey Lee Marble, 77, Naples, Idaho passed away at home December 7, 2021. He was the youngest of seven children born to Harry Enoch Marble and Gertrude Rose (Rubbert) Marble. Mickey was born on a cold January morning at home in Rankin, Michigan.

When only a toddler the family moved to Lennon, Michigan. That is where he grew up into a strong man on the family dairy farm. He was a member of the Boy Scouts and FFA.

Mickey graduated from Owosso High School, Owosso, Michigan, and was a tin smith when he was drafted into the United States Army. Training with the 82nd Airborne, Mickey was deployed with his service brothers of the 173rd Airborne to Vietnam.

After returning home he found a job as a railroad switchman and large equipment operator. Mickey was right at home as a millwright or anything else that involved turning a wrench or two.

Mickey enjoyed muscle cars, motorcycles, target shooting, hunting, fishing and clamming. When he got where he couldn’t walk on the uneven ground to hunt, Mickey turned to raising pheasants, peacocks and other fowl. But that got to be too hard on him as well, and Mickey requested the family put food out to draw the wildlife in so he could watch them out his window.

In late summer of 1971, Mickey was introduced to a young woman named Sally. The two hit it off and the following year he asked her to marry him. Many of his friends and family told him not to because of their age difference. Mickey and Sally Wilson were married April 1973. They stayed by each other’s sides until God called Mickey home.

Mickey lived a full life with his wife and six children. Other family and friends can be found all across the United States.

Mickey leaves behind his wife, Sally (Wilson) Marble, daughter Malinea (David) McCuenn, Oregon, sons Jessee (Lori) Marble, Bonners Ferry, Travis, Jeremy, and Luke Marble, all of Naples, and his youngest, Shane (Marie) Marble, Priest River, ten grandchildren, two great-grand children, sisters Marion (Calvin) Wardie, Fenton, Michigan, and Wilma (Louis) Young, also of Michigan.

The loved ones who preceded Mickey in death were his parents, Harry and Gertrude (Rubbert) Marble, brothers Max and Kim Marble, both of Lennon, Michigan, and sisters Bernita (Marble) Bowden, also of Lennon, and Carolyn Marble, Bert, Michigan.

May you rest in peace Mickey. You will always be loved and missed.
