Marlow Martin Zook

Born: 3/8/1933, Garrison, North Dakota
Death: 11/15/2013, Great Falls, Montana
Service: 11/23/2013, 11:00 am, Croxfords and Sons Funeral Home

Marlow M Zook, 80, of Vaughn, passed away November 15, 2013.

He was born March 8, 1933 in Garrison, ND to Ida and Harry Zook. He joined a brother Harold and later a sister Shirley was born that completed their family. He spent his childhood in Garrison and started his plumbing career at age 16. After graduating from Garrison High School, he continued in the plumbing profession and at age 21 became a licensed plumber. Shortly after, Marlow met the love of his life, Virdene Skramstad, and they married July 24, 1954. Five children, Carolyn, Marlon, Nancy, Valerie, and Curtis, were welcomed and raised with love by Marlow and Virdene. After living in North Dakota all his life, the love for the mountains drew Marlow to head West and settle with his family in Montana in 1960. He has lived in Vaughn for the last 45 years and appreciated the beauty of being able to view the mountains at all times from their home. Marlow enjoyed hunting, fly fishing, camping, checking out ghost towns and historical sights, anything to do with cars, and spending time with his family.

Marlow was a family man who worked hard to always make sure his family was taken care of and was quite the handyman. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or repair. He was an avid historian who read and marveled about the interesting facts he discovered especially regarding Montana history. Marlow and Virdene loved to go dancing. Marlow was a gunsmith, and spent hours in his gun room reloading, building and restoring guns. He taught hunter safety for ten years. Marlow retired in 1995, but was proud to still hold an active Plumber/Pipefitters Union card for 59 years at the time of his death. Other memberships he was active in were the Sun River Valley Historical Society, NRA and the Moose Lodge.

Survivors include his wife Virdene Zook; children: Carolyn (Wes) Sheldon, Marlon (Bonnie) Zook, Nancy Lee, Valerie (Tim) Croft, Curtis Zook; grandchildren: Leslie (Justin) Brown, Jeff (Cheree) Sheldon, Stephanie (Jon) Giles, Ben Sheldon, Aimee (Robert) Carnesecca, Lindsey (Marc) Mahoney, Michael Zook, Kevin Lee, Darren Lee, Vince (Sydney) Lee, Canyon Croft, Bridger Croft; Great Grandchildren: Alexis, Julie and Madison Brown; Elizabeth, Melissa, and Rachel Giles; Ashjen (Juggert), MaKensey, and Jesse Sheldon; Chantelle, Noelle, Abigail, Nicholina, Abigail, Isaac, and Mercedes Sheldon; Taite, Roxy, and Layla Carnesecca and Clyde Lee; a sister Shirley Marks and sister-in-law Joyce Zook.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
