Robert L. Marks Sr., 64, Sunbury

SUNBURY — Robert L. Marks Sr., 64, of 349 Pennsylvania Ave., passed away Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013, at his home surrounded by his family.

He was born March 13, 1948, in Kelly Township, Union County, a son of the late Ralph N. and Katherine E. (Hauck) Marks. On July 18, 1969, in Jacksonville, N.C., he married the former Sandra L. Smith, who survives.

Bob attended Northumberland High School, where he played basketball, football and baseball and was a Pineknotter. He served in the Marine Corps and was a veteran of the Vietnam War, where he earned the rank of lance corporal. He received the Pistol and Rifle Marksman Badge, the Good Conduct Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal with four Bronze Stars and the Vietnam Combat Medal.

He was employed for more than 30 years by The Daily Item. After retiring, he did painting.

Bob was an active member of American Legion Post 201, where he served as a member of the honor guard and officer and was on the pool team. He also had played on The Daily Item softball team.

He enjoyed spending time in the summer with his Grandpap and Grandma Hauck and later with his Uncle Terry and Aunt Judy Troxell. His favorite hobbies were puzzles, cards, shooting pool, hunting, fishing, cookouts, collecting hats, bowling and, most of all, spending time with his family. His favorite teams were Penn State, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Phillies.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Mary A. and James K. Mahaffey, of Sunbury; three sons and daughters-in-law, Robert L. Jr. and Tina D. Marks, of Liverpool, Allen J. and Nikki Marks, of Martinez, Ga., and Joseph M. and Amanda Marks, of Mifflinburg; one stepson, Marvin B. Edmiston, of Columbus, Ohio; 10 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and one brother, Elmer Marks, of Florida.

He was preceded in death by one brother, George Marks, in November, and maternal grandparents, Milton C. and Mary Ida (Koons) Hauck.

A viewing will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday at the Olley-Gotlob Funeral Home, 539 Race St., Sunbury, followed by the funeral at 11 with Pastor Darrin Hunt officiating.

Burial will be in Northumberland Memorial Park, Stonington, with full military honors accorded by American Legion Post 201.
