Marion Wier passed peacefully a few days after his 74th birthday. He had a rare disease for which he had a successful bone marrow transport 15 years ago, but it came back with a vengeance and unresponsive to medication. He bore his illness with the grace that typified his life. His oldest son, Alex, wrote a lovely obituary http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/augustachronicle/obituary.aspx?n=marion-alexander-wier&pid=184754077&fhid=5407
Marion retired completely only last year from a long and respected career as a radiologist in Augusta, where my Marion had known him, and his lovely wife, Linda, for decades. The four of us became close friends and companion “golf tourists”, taking at least 15 trips together around the USA and overseas, as far away as Australia and New Zealand. The photo was in Bermuda in 2013.
We were privileged to be with his family and among the huge crowd of friends at his beautiful funeral on Friday.
Good memories of a special man. He will often be in our thoughts, and always in our hearts.
