Robert L. Marrier, age 85, of Cottage Grove was born in St. Paul, MN and died peacefully in Woodbury, MN on November 11, 2020 after a short illness.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Lillian; and sister, Betty Geis. Bob is survived by his wife of 63 years, Helen (Faust); children, Mary Helen (Mike) Pallin, Margaret (Joe) Rudich, Thomas (Michele), and Betty Lou (Kevin) McMaster; and eleven grandchildren.
Bob was an electrician and also taught classes at St. Paul College. He was a Chief Petty Officer in the Navy for 32 years and it is very fitting for him to die on Veterans Day.
Funeral Service 2 PM with visitation beginning at 1 PM, Sunday, November 22, 2020 at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 1000 Portland Ave., St. Paul Park, MN, 55071. Private family interment at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. Masks and social distancing are required at all services. Memorials are preferred to St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church.
Due to Covid-19 and the restrictions in place for attendees the service for Bob will be recorded and available later Sunday afternoon for those not in attendance. It can be found by clicking on the link below the obituary on this page.
While maintaining social distancing guidelines, we are now able to accommodate gatherings while abiding to a 50% capacity at the facility. The use of face masks by attendees is required at indoor events, and we will continue taking the necessary steps to keep your families safe. Expressions of sympathy during this time can be left on the condolences page available on the obituary portion on our website. We also encourage you to view the video tribute once it becomes available or complete the HeartStrings online sympathy page with the link above.
