  • Speech Hall of Famer

    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    “Success breeds success” is the motto of Marrianne Driml.

    “I know I’ve coached 100 to 150 people,” Driml said.

    Dale Lingle thought his 16-year-old son was simply sleeping off a late night of computer and video games when he found him still lying in bed in the middle of the afternoon  July 18.

    “He was a typical teenager. In the summer, he would stay up late on the computer and playing video games,” Dale said. “I went in to get him out of bed and he didn’t wake up.”

    More than two months after his death, Codie Lingle’s family finally knows with some certainty what caused the death of their son and brother.
