DEMOPOLIS &8212; Jeremy Marlowe, 27, and Clark Pickle, 21, both residents of Demopolis, were tragically killed in a 14-car pileup on Hwy 80 Tuesday morning.

But the two were more than victims of a horrible accident. Both were sons of loving parents. One was a husband and father. The other was a fiance just months away from being married.

Jeremy Key Marlowe was born on Nov. 28, 1978, and lived his entire life in Marengo County, moving between Demopolis and Linden.

Marlowe had been married to his wife Shana for seven years. They had a 5-year-old daughter named Mazzy Alease.

Lucille Carpenter, a family friend, remembers Jeremy fondly.

Jeremy was employed with West Alabama Mechanics as a welder, and had been working construction at Rock-Tenn for a year.

Clark Edward Pickle was engaged to Kelly Farnham. They were to be married next March.

He graduated in 2003 from Demopolis High School. He attended the University of West Alabama and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Clark had a passion for photography. His art was featured at the Two Rivers Arts Council Art Show in June at the Demopolis Public Library.

According to Joe Turner, Clark was sensitive to surroundings.
