Fellow Marine Lance Cpl. Hatak Yuka Keyu Yearby, 21, of Overbrook, Oklahoma, was killed in the same incident.
Marin was born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and emigrated to the United States in 1991. His family later moved to Liberal and he became a U.S. citizen. He was remembered for his faith and devotion to his adopted country.
"He told me that in his own way, he had a relationship with God, and God had him there for a reason," said his brother, Thomas Marin.
