GENEVA – Marshall Brodien as Wizzo The Wacky Wizard was famous on WGN Channel 9’s “Bozo’s Circus,” a bit of nostalgia Mayor Kevin Burns said he remembered fondly.
Burns honored Brodien, a Geneva resident since 1995, with a proclamation declaring July 10 to be Marshall Brodien Day in Geneva, in honor of his 84th birthday.
The proclamation, presented to Brodien’s wife, Mary Doyle Brodien at the July 9 City Council meeting, also recognized her efforts to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s, which Marshall Brodien has had for about 15 years.
