Michael Parrish Marmion , of Noblesville, passed away peacefully on March 16, 2022, with his loving wife, Maria and daughter, Rylee by his side. He fought a courageous battle with leukemia and advanced dementia.
He is survived by his wife, Maria K. Marmion; daughters Rylee and Jessica Marmion; son Clay Marmion (Staci Ziegler); sisters, Melinda de Marmion and Abby Marmion; grandchildren, Elena, Braxton and Maelynn; and sister-in law, Sandra Booher; many nieces, nephews, and out-of-state aunts and cousins.
Mike was preceded in death by his parents, E. Michael and Patricia Marmion. He attended Bishop Chatard and Broad Ripple High Schools as well as Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).
Mike was a wonderful and loving husband, father, brother, grandpa and friend. The most important thing to him was spending time with his family. He enjoyed sharing meals with them and having cookouts that included lively conversation, lots of photo taking, singing and guitar playing. Mike was incredibly proud of his children. He loved watching Rylee’s Noblesville cheerleading games, competitions and orchestra performances. He loved watching Jessica graduate from nursing school. And he loved watching Clay build a successful business. He was a proud grandpa and loved seeing Jessica and Clay start families and raise their children.
Mike was an incredibly smart and talented guy and had an eclectic career that included working on oil rigs, framing houses, building mini barns, HVAC service management and information technology. He retired due to his illness from the job he loved as a Product Data Manager at Indianapolis-based Micrometl Corporation.
Mike loved music his whole life from the time he was a little kid and was influenced by our grandfather Frank Parrish who was a big band recording artist and musician in the 1930’s and 1940’s. He organized and played in garage/basement bands over the years beginning in grade school. He had a beautiful singing voice and played the guitar and drums. Mike also enjoyed watching live music and attending concerts with friends and family members.
Our family is so grateful that we had time together in hospice to grieve, say goodbye and celebrate Mike’s life. We would like to thank the dedicated physicians who cared for him including Dr. David Josephson, Dr. Chandra Brahmachari, Dr. Michael Dugan, Dr. Ruemu Birhiray and the hospice team at Compassus St. Vincent. We would also like to thank the bone marrow donor for his generosity, as he gave Mike more than 5 additional years of life with his family.
Services will be held on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at Randall & Roberts Funeral Center, 1685 Westfield Road in Noblesville. Calling will be from 10:00 am-12:00 noon with a 12:00pm funeral service. Burial to follow.
