Marlan was a very nice and friendly man. We always looked forward to seeing him each season at my son, Codys USA fireworks stand in Copeville. Praying for his wife and their family.

I met Marlan several years ago around July 4th when he stopped by my USA Fireworks retail store to purchase some fireworks for his family. He and his wife were regular customers of mine and I always looked forward to seeing him each season. I was extremely sadded to learn of his passing a few days ago when his wife and one of his sons stopped by my retail store. I told his wife, there are a few customers I really enjoyed seeing each season and Marlan was one of them. Prayers for his wife, children and entire family.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Petroleum History Institute, I extend our condolences to the Downey family on the loss of Marlan Downey. He was well known in our organization and in 2005 he was awarded THE COLONEL EDWIN L. DRAKE LEGENDARY OILMAN AWARD - Honoring a lifetime of achievement within the oil and gas industry by PHI at our Houston meeting.

Please know that he will be missed by all of us at PHI.

Sincerely,
William R. Brice, Ph.D.
2nd vice-President, PHI
