It is with love and gratitude that we ask you to join us for the service and celebration of the life of Marion Quinton (Boe) Nottingham who passed on October 3, 2016 after his fight to recover from his failing heart. Husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother, nephew, friend and one of the nicest guys you could ever hope to meet, he loved life, his family and his friends, always had a smile on his face and laughter in his heart. He was generous, caring, and could find the humor in any situation. He was a loyal and honest man, a pretty good golfer, a big Raiders fan and an even bigger Dodgers fan. He even asked the ultrasound tech at the hospital if he could see that his blood was Dodger blue. Born to Marion Jackson and Bertha Nottingham on April 30, 1943 in Phoenix, Arizona where they lived for 11 years. They relocated to California and eventually to Rio Linda, CA where he attended Rio Linda Jr. High and Highlands High School, played football and speed skated.
