Toney Marino, Jr.
He was born November 26, 1932, in Mabscott, WV. A lifelong resident of Beckley, Toney was the son of the late Toney and Mary Marino, Sr.
Toney attended Woodrow Wilson High School. After high school, he served in the Army National Guard. He spent his career in printing, first working for Biggs, Johnson, Withrow Printing, where he met lifelong friend George Wilson, and later the Central Printing Company. Toney's employer at Central Printing was Bob McClure, his longtime friend and golfing buddy. He enjoyed gardening, participating in car shows, his Corvette, doting over his beloved cats and playing golf in his younger years. Toney never met a stranger.
Toney was married for 65 years to his high school sweetheart, Mary Kathryn, who recently preceded him in death. In the years following their retirements, they enjoyed making numerous road trips to North Carolina. They were rarely seen apart.
Toney is survived by two sisters, Mary Ann Marino Fisher and Delores Marino Hodges, nieces and nephews, Toni, Susan, Donna, David, Karen and Kevin. He also had many great nieces and nephews and five great-great nieces and nephews.
Though Toney and Mary K. did not have any biological children, they both affectionately claimed Gary Spangler as their son. Gary was an integral part of their lives for over 45 years. From golfing partner, Bud Light buddy, family Holiday parties and transporter to appointments, Gary was always there for Toney and Mary.
