Marlin "Truss" Samuel Trussell

June 28, 1939 — July 24, 2019

Marlin "Truss" Samuel Trussell, 80, of New Lexington peacefully passed away in the early morning hours of Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at Fairfield Medical Center following a brief illness.

He was born the oldest son to the late, Pearl Dean and Pearl Lucille (nee: Blosser) Trussell on June 28, 1939.

After graduating from Crooksville High School, Marlin went to work in the local pottery industry, spending most of his life as a dipper and blower for the Hull Pottery and Watt Pottery companies. Marlin then was employed by Glassfloss in Lancaster where he eventually retired. Marlin honorably served his country in the United States Marine Corps Reserves from 1958-1964.

Marlin will always be remembered as a very ornery person, always giving a hard time to those he loved and cared for. His pestering was his way of showing you that he cared about you, it was his most admirable quality. Marlin will always be remembered as a good man and a great friend.

In addition to his parents, Marlin is preceded in death by his sweetheart of 40 years, Annie Harris and his infant brother, Sonny Trussell.
