Their first son Ty Lee Younger was born September 19, 1968 followed by Lance Coleman Younger on March 25, 1972. Both of Marlynn’s sons were very close to him ( he was their hero). They loved to restore old Chevrolet cars and pickups, build trailers, go hunting, boating, camping, snowmobiling and four-wheeling together. Marlynn worked in construction, drove lumber truck for Hudspeth, and log truck for Stafford Logging.
