Dennis L. Marrs, 73, of Columbia City, Indiana, passed away Friday, May 21, 2021 at his home. Born August 6, 1947 in Wolf Lake at Lucky Hospital, he was the second born child of Raymond and RoseMary (Blair) Marrs.

Growing up on Big Lake, Denny learned at a young age how to fish. As a teenager he started working at Goss Grocery Store.

Denny was a Noble County resident until the mid 1980's and moved to Whitley County. On November 8, 2008, Denny married Linda Langohr. The two had known each other since they were children and attended school together. Denny found relaxation in fishing and was a member of the Columbia City VFW where he enjoyed cooking for their fish fries.
