Theisen, Marlyn. Born in Wayzata, MN on June 14, 1937 and passed away on December 16, 2020 with loved ones nearby. Marlyn was preceded in death by…  Marlyn will be remembered for his quick wit and silly antics. His claim that he never exaggerated and he never lied was met with guffaws from family. He worked at various jobs and for various companies in the real estate industry. His favorite job was driving a Minneapolis tour trolley which combined his love of history, driving, performance, and making friends with strangers. He was a consummate runner, especially of endurance races, and was known to sometimes train by running several marathons in a week. He was a versatile athlete who enjoyed playing, coaching, and watching most any sport, especially when family was participating. He was an amazing gardener, an avid reader of history and politics, and he loved to travel and share adventures with family. He cherished life and led a truly great one. He was loved by many and will be dearly missed. His Memorial Service will be postponed until family and friends can gather safely. Marlyn was a proud graduate of Minneapolis South High.
