It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to inform you that Marion Common Councilman Don Batchelor from District 5, passed away late Wednesday evening. Councilman Batchelor was at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne and had his wife and family with him when he passed.
Don was a true servant for the people of not only District 5, but all citizens of Marion. His passion and presence on the Common Council will truly be missed. The Batchelor family asks for your continued prayers during this most difficult time. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be provided when they are made available.
-Mayor Jess Alumbaugh
