Virgil Lee Partin

November 21, 1932 — August 7, 2019

Virgil Partin passed away peacefully on August 7. He was 86 years old and was married to the love of his life for 63 years.

Virgil was born in Pruden, Tennessee and passed away with family near. He was preceded in death by his mother, Lula Burton and his sister, Barbara Adams. He is survived by his wife, Marilynn Partin; five children, Brenda Lemmert, Dawn Partin-Siwula, Larry Partin, Linda Ritter, Kathy Partin and their families; sister, Bobbie Jean Wolf; and brother, Roland Davis. He enjoyed spending time at his home with his eight grandchildren, granddogs and many great-grandchildren. He loved his family and they loved him.

Virgil was a Mason for nearly his entire life. Drafted into the Army during the Korean war, he proudly served his country in the US and in Germany and earned awards for his marksmanship. He enjoyed cutting wood for the winter, building things in the garage and hunting or fishing with welcomed visitors. Good with his hands, he built his home on the weekends in Grayling and retired from Pontiac Motors to live there at the early age of 48. He loved the woods, the river and the lake.

Memorials may be made to Munson Hospice House’s bird feeder fund or the National MS Society.
