Marquardt (James Pena); daughter-in-law, Debbie Marquardt; grandchildren, Katie (Eric) Lebsock, Hannah Marquardt (Steve Ziebell), Molly Brown (fiancé, Keaton Kristick), Daniel (Samantha) Marquardt, Nathan (Sarah) Marquardt, Jessie Brown (Annie Moyer); great-grandchildren, Haisley Lebsock, Ethan Marquardt, Coen Marquardt, Lucas Brown; sister, Carol (Dave) Laun; his faithful and furry companion, Guinness; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.
