Marion L. Klingler Sr., 70, Noblesville, died Feb. 19 at his home. He was born Aug. 4, 1945 to George and Hazel (Shirley) Klingler in Lebanon.
For 25 years, Marion worked as a machinist with Indiana Gear Works and with other companies after that time. Marion proudly served his country in the Indiana National Guard.
