Christopher Robin Marriott, husband of Deborah Ackerman Marriott, passed away on Saturday December 14th, 2019 at his home in Clarksville, Virginia at the age of 63. He was born October 1, 1956 in Newark, Ohio to the late Robert and Helen Sipe Marriott.
Chris was raised in the Welsh Hills of Granville, Ohio, where he was a 9th generation descendant. Chris retired from Denison University where he worked as a tradesman and locksmith for 35 years. He loved the Denison community and enjoyed his time there. He enjoyed lending a helping hand to friends and neighbors, always with a smile and his great laugh. Chris was an avid The Ohio State Buckeye fan and enjoyed being on Buggs Island Lake and watching wildlife of any kind. His favorite pastimes were boating and golf carting with Debbie and his dogs, Diamond and Sassy, and he loved going to the beach. Chris took much pride in his home and yard and could do and fix about anything, especially if it involved working with wood.
He is survived by wife, Debbie; brothers, Phillip (Beth) Marriott of Richmond, VA and Mark (Virginia) Marriott of Buffalo Junction, VA; as well as nephews, Justin (Megan) Marriott and Matt (Allison) Marriott; and other family members in Ohio, North Carolina and Iowa.
A celebration of his life will be held at a later date at Gypsy Beach on Buggs Island Lake, in Clarksville, VA as well as at McPeek-Hoekstra Funeral Home in Granville, Ohio.
