Marlon Fisher, #16119
Arriving at Dudley as a Cub in 1993, Marlon had never seen anything as beautiful as the Adirondack mountains. Through the generousity of the Dan Donahue family and the Merrill Lynch Scholarship Builder Program Marlon got to Dudley. Subsequently, Dudley and the people associated with it became the most cherished aspect of Marlon’s life. Marlon became a leader in 2000, Cub division head for several years and then a Dudley summer staff member.
Marlon served the Army as an All Source Intelligence Analyst, from 2008-2016, including a tour of duty in Afghanistan. There Marlon discovered his ability to make others laugh through comedy. Since then, Marlon has been known as “Big Fish” on stage. Marlon was a Seven Daysie finalist in 2015, and in 2017 was a finalist in Vermont’s Funniest Comic Competition.
Through public and community service, Marlon has instructed, mentored, and worked with youth in residential settings, wilderness programs, and the community, a desire that came from Marlon’s Dudley experience.
Marlon married Aron Steward, in August 2015, bought a home, adopted two kitties, and settled in Burlington, VT. The greatest joy in Marlon’s life arrived in July 2016 when Percy Wynston, a son was born. A second son, Malachai, arrived in February 2018.
