The Victoria Advocate wrote on July 12, 1924 that "    Louis Marmion, a Victoria boy who is winning great distinction in the commercial world, arrived in Victoria Saturday on a three-day visit to his mother, Mrs. E.L. Marmion, after an absence of many years. He served for four years as assistant superintendent of the Ford interests in the Argentine Republic. He and his wife are now en route to Havana, where he will serve the Ford company as Cuban superintendent. "
