Nolan was born on Nov. 2, 1993, in Minneapolis, Minn., to Brian Marrs and Kerine Rosencrantz. He graduated from Goodrich High School in Grand Blanc in 2012.
Nolan loved his summers spent in Hudson with his dad and step-mom Holly (Penman) Marrs. Family was important to him and he had an abundance of them when he came to Hudson. He loved walking along the river looking for arrowheads and agates like his "Grandpa Gordy". He enjoyed the outdoors, riding bikes, target shooting, walking or just appreciating the quiet.
He also loved his time with his Grandma and Grandpa Marrs in Florida riding horses and hunting seashells on the beach. Before his death he was venturing into computer programming and knife smithing.
He was truly loved and will be missed by all.
He was preceded in death by step-grandparents Delores and Gordon Penman; and step-uncles, Jeffrey, Thomas and Gary Penman.
