Obituary for George Marsh Marks

George Marsh Marks was received into the arms of Jesus on July 31st, 2017 when he departed from his home while surrounded by his family.
George was born November 21, 1944 to the late Arthur and Cynthia Patch Marks. Also preceding him in death was his son, John Long Marks and his brother, Arthur Marks, Jr. He is survived by his wife, Deborah Heflin Marks, his son, Benjamin Patch Marks, daughters, Joy Groves Shepard (Jimmy), Jill Groves Arney (Dustin), grandchildren, Drew Shepard and Sophia Milom, brother, Albert Marks (Annette), nephew, Hunter Marks, and niece, Ruth Marks Hoffman.
George graduated from Clarksville High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture from the University of Tennessee.
If there was ever a man born to be a farmer, it was George, as he was a man of the earth and loved farming. He operated a dairy and grew corn, beans, wheat, and tobacco on his century farm in the Hickory Point Community. He was active in many agriculture organizations. George was the Past President of the Tennessee Farmer's Co-Op and a former board member of the Montgomery County Co-Op. He served forty-eight years on the Board of the Burley Stabilization Corporation and thirty of those years as President. He was also a Board Member of the Montgomery County Farm Bureau for many years and a committee person with the Farm Service Agency. He also served two terms with the County Planning Commission. George was a member of the Excell Baptist Church and a charter member of the Blue Wing Hunting Club.
Visitation will be at McReynolds-Nave & Larson Funeral Home on Wednesday from 4 to 8 p.m. and on Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m. at Excell Baptist Church. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. at Excell Baptist Church with Bro. Terrell Marcom officiating.
Pallbearers are Daniel Green, Barry Bush, Ronald Schmittou, Trey Peterson, Shane Poole, Jay Head, Tyler Wallace, and Drew Shepard. Honorary Pallbearers are Board Members of the Burley Stabilization Corporation, William Earl Lutrell, Rudy Batts, Joe Pearson, and Bill Howard.
In lieu of flowers memorials contributions may be made to the Excell Baptist Church Building Fund. George asked that we express his sincere appreciation to family members, friends, and especially his Pastor for all their concern, love, and support for him and Debbie as he fought a year long battle with leukemia.
