Marland R. “Marv” Julian, 65, of Baker City June 28, 2002, at his home.
His memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 2177 First St.
He was born Aug. 7, 1936, in Springdale, Ark. He was a son of Clyde Julian and Rhetta Grace “Mulkey” Julian.
He attended high school at Shreveport, La. He entered the U.S. Air Force and was a weather officer from 1954 to 1958. He was based at Goose Bay, Labrador.
After his discharge from the service, he worked in restaurants at Buffalo, N.Y., and Madison, Wis., learning Danish and German cooking. He then took a position opening up restaurants in the new Holiday Inn chain, which took him to Hollywood and eventually into Portland where he became chef of The Mayfair House and Jenos for many years.
“Marv” was chef at the Baker Hotel in its heyday in the ’60s. He managed the Longview, Wash., Elks Club in the 1970s before returning to Baker City in the early 1980s where he opened a restaurant equipment and janitorial supply business.
He traveled to Eastern Oregon and Southern Idaho communities from Pocatello, Idaho, to Hood River. He loved selling almost as much as he loved cooking for people.
He was a member of Baker Elks Lodge, No. 338, and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Lois Julian; parents Clyde and Rhetta Julian; and his brothers Don Julian and Melvin Julian.
Survivors include his wife, Aletha Bonebrake Julian of Baker City; brothers, Gene Julian of Dodgeville, Wis., and Jimmy Julian of Shreveport, La.; sons, Greg, Mike and Allen Julian all of Salem; daughters, Laurie Carnes of Salem, and Marlene Rogers and her husband, Keith, of Baker City; granddaughter, Deena Phillips of Keating Valley; grandson, Bob Rogers of Redmond; and nine other grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
Memorial contributions may be made to St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church or a charity of one’s choice through Coles Funeral Home, 1950 Place St., Baker City, OR 97814.
