Marlyn L Scovill 80, of Hubbard Iowa, passed away on Sunday, October 11th 2020, at the Hubbard Care Center due to complications of Covid-19. Plans are for a family graveside burial of their urns where they have a plot and headstone at Dobson Cemetery rural Garwin next Spring when it's possibly safer to gather. Arrangements have been entrusted to Anderson Funeral Homes. Online condolences may be sent to www.andersonsfhs.com.

Marlyn was born on February 25th 1940, the 1st of three boys, in Marshalltown Iowa to Harry and Ethel Jane (Squire) Scovill. He was educated in Marshalltown and after school and on weekends he worked as a bus boy at Lloyds Restaurant. Later while in High School he worked at the 7up Bottling Company loading trucks. In 1957 Marlyn enlisted in the Navy, and on his 17th Birthday he left for basic training at Great Lakes Naval Training Center in Chicago. He served 4 years out of Key West Florida on the USS Shrike, a mine sweeper, as an E4 engineman 3rd class.

In 1959 while on leave, Marlyn met Mary Lou Weig. After being honorably discharged in 1961, he returned home to Marshalltown and began dating Mary Lou, and they were soon engaged in May of that year. On July 15th 1961 they were united in marriage at St Mary's Catholic Church in Marshalltown, and made Marshalltown their home for 37 years. Born to this union were daughter Cathy and son Marty.

Marlyn worked at Lennox, and in between layoffs worked at Marshall Pack. In June of 1966 he was about to be laid off from Lennox again, so his boss called someone he knew at Fisher Controls and helped Marlyn get a job there, where he worked for 30 years.

In the late 60s to early 70s, Marlyn helped as a mechanic for his brother Clint's hobby of drag racing. Throughout these years he also bowled in league, golfed and played softball.

After both he and Mary Lou retired in 1996, they moved to Hubbard Iowa in 1998. While in Hubbard he worked at Larson's Inc for a few years before fully retiring in 2001.

Together Marlyn and Mary Lou enjoyed going on fishing trips to Minnesota and Canada, golfing, dancing, playing cards & games, hunting, and hosting "deer camp" each December. One of the highlights of their last 17 years together was making an annual, month-long trip to Orange Beach Alabama. Marlyn enjoyed all of these activities and trips with the company of numerous family and friends, all of whom meant the world to him.

Those left to cherish his memory include his children Cathy (Kim) Larson of Hubbard, and Marty (Teri) Scovill of Marshalltown. Grandchildren Stephanie (Philip) Brecht of Cedar Rapids, Jeremy Barkema of Hubbard, Cody Scovill of Monroe, and Cami Scovill (Adam Vajgrt) of Marshalltown, Step-Granddaughters Kendra (Seth) Elliott of Bondurant, Kami (Eddie) Covarrubias of Des Moines, Great-Grandsons Maverick and Hendrix Brecht, Step Great-Grandchildren Myah & Mason Elliott; brother Clint (Joan) Scovill of Cumming GA, and many nieces and nephews; along with Grand-dogs Carlee, Callie, and Duke. He was preceded in death by his wife of 58 years, Mary Lou; his parents; brother Craig; father and mother in-law, Edward and Adeline Weig; brothers in-law Ronnie Weig and Jake Shattuck, sisters in-law Cherryl Weig and Lola Weig.
