Marlin Franklin

August 12, 1937 — February 2, 2021


Marlin was a wonderful husband, a loved father, step-father, grandfather and brother. He was a brother-in-law, uncle and friend.
Marlin is survived by his wife of 46 years, Jewel Franklin, a daughter Marla Robey and a step-son Keith Cruce, along with several extended family members.
Marlin retired from Pullman Standard as a Mechanical Engineer and then continued working at Guzzler Manufacturing, also as an engineer.
He was an avid fisherman, an extremely talented artist and woodcrafter. His sense of humor kept us laughing until the day the Lord called him home.
A graveside service will be held on Friday, February 5, 2021 at 11:00 am in the Abbey Mausoleum Chapel at Currie-Jefferson Funeral Home, 2701 John Hawkins Pkwy, Hoover, AL.
