Johnny Marrou
June 8, 1940 - November 19, 2019

Johnny Mack Marrou, 79, of La Grange, passed away on Tuesday, November 19, 2019.

Johnny was born in Nixon, Texas on June 8, 1940, the son of Frank G. and Tillie (Schroeder) Marrou.

Johnny graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration from Texas A&M University in 1962, where he played football, and later with a Master of Accounting from the University of Texas.

Johnny married Sarah Jo (Oeltjen) on June 15, 1968, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in La Grange.

Johnny worked as a CPA for fifty-plus years and served as the Vice President of Southwest Houston A&M Club.

We fondly remember dad at every school event, softball game, and birthday party. On Saturdays, he would get up and mow the lawn and let us sleep. That is until it was time for us to mow and for him to cut the weeds. He taught us how to drive, make apple pie, paint with even strokes, and to always read the directions. Every Christmas, he would buy a real tree and water it faithfully every day. He collected walrus figurines, loved the Aggies, and was devoted to us.

He is survived by his wife, Sarah Jo (Oeltjen) Marrou; three daughters, Nicole Wagner and husband, Jayson of Spring Branch, TX; Renee Huss and husband, Monte of Pearland, TX; Monique Hereford and husband Gary of Katy, TX; brother, Frank M. Marrou and wife, Barbara of Universal City, TX; two grandchildren: Jack Winston Wagner and Lucy Anabelle Wagner of Spring Branch, TX.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Leslie R. Marrou and his wife, Ruby.
