January 19, 1957 – January 20, 2020
Marlon was born in Indian Head, SK hospital on January 19, 1957. He was the third child of Henry and Irene Weigel who were living at Fort Qu’Apelle, SK at the time. Henry and Irene moved their family back to their farm near White Fox, SK a year later. Marlon started school in White Fox and attended there until the family moved from the farm to Choiceland, SK. After Grade 10, Marlon quit school and worked at various jobs and then began logging and he stayed at that occupation for the rest of his life. In 1978 he married Jean Moen and they had a son, Rory Brance Weigel.
Later in life, Marlon married Violet Jones and they moved to their acreage near Meadow Lake, SK. Marlon continued working in the forestry industry. Together with Vi, they enjoyed quiet country living and spent many hours working together in their garden. Marlon especially enjoyed growing his huge pumpkins which he loved to give away to his grandchildren, other family members and neighbours. Marlon loved to fish and hunt and enjoy the outdoors. He loved his grandchildren, great nieces and nephews and is well known for his gentle teasing and willingness to take them along with him as he worked around the acreage or teaching them how to fish.
