Mr. Marx was born July 20, 1917 in Hugo, Okla. He attended school in Paris, Texas and graduated from Paris High School in 1933. He participated in athletics and lettered in football. While in high school, he worked at the Paris News. He later attended Paris Junior College and Baylor University on a football scholarship, graduating from Baylor in 1940 with a degree in business. He was a member of the "B" Association at Baylor and has been a contributor to the President's Club which provides scholarship funds for selected students.

Mr. Marx served in the U.S. Army from 1941 to 1946. He entered the Army just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor and was later assigned to the 13th Airborne Division, stationed in North Carolina and in France. He was discharged with the rank of major. Following his discharge from the Army, he returned to Dallas to work for Firestone and was transferred to Corsicana in 1947. He assumed the managership of Stroube Implement Company in 1949 where he worked for over 30 years.

He always had a love for sports of every kind. He was a prominent figure in the early years of Little League baseball and was the "sidekick" of Stuart Beebe as he worked with the summer baseball leagues. In 1954 he took charge of the teen-age league and handled the sophomore league for 20 years. He was a loyal supporter of all aspects of the Baylor athletic program and faithfully attended athletic events at Corsicana High School as long as he was able. After retiring, he substitute taught at the high school for several years, following his students athletic endeavors in track, basketball, girls volleyball and football. On awards day in the spring of 1990, he was presented with the Super Tiger Fan Award in appreciation for his support of the girls athletic program.

Mr. Marx was a man of integrity and honor. His focus was outward toward others, not inward. His life was that of unconscious self-giving, always thinking of the needs of his family and others with little or no thought for himself. He was a faithful member of First Baptist Church.
