Marlon was born on March 13, 1922 to David and Martha Steinert. He graduated from Lehigh High School in 1941 and attended Bethel and McPherson College until he joined the Army to serve his country in World War II. Marlon married Margaret L. Matz on May 10, 1944 and they were blessed with 66 anniversaries. After the war, Marlon and Margaret moved to Kansas City, MO., where he attended and graduated from UMKC School of Dentistry in 1951. He practiced dentistry for 19 years, when an injury caused him to become a Professor of Clinical Dentistry at UMKC in 1971. He taught and mentored young men and women in the profession he loved until his retirement in 1984.

He was proud to have raised his family in Raytown, MO., where he enjoyed being active in local politics, community activities, Blue Ridge United Methodist Church, and the Kansas City Metro Men’s Chorus, of which he was a co-founder.

Marlon was proud to be a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Margaret; three children, Jon, Bob and Lisa; three-in-laws, Lesley, Teresa, and Kurt; six grandchildren, Jamie, Julie, Jonnie, Maggie, Annie and Conrad; one great grandson, Logan; sister, Darlene Balzer and special friends, David Brown and Debra Simmons. Awaiting him in heaven are his parents and his beloved nephew, Steve Balzer.
