Dear Marvin,

Did I ever tell you how great it was to have a brother who is 17 years older than you? You were the one who gave me my first ride in a convertible - your gorgeous burgundy Pontiac (Le Mans was it?) with the white top. It made magic out of an ordinary summer evening for this 10 year old girl. You did things I could only imagine about when I was really little, like betting at the racetrack, fishing with Uncle John, taking in a Cubs game at Wrigley field, playing cribbage with Uncle Max, Dad, and Uncle Jess out on the back porch of the house on Missouri Avenue. To a young girl, you had that confident swagger of a young man, but you were also always so kind and gentle to me, your baby half sister.

Dad would be so proud of the man, husband, father, and grandfather you became, that he didn't live to see on this earth. Oh, how joyful it must be to be reunited with him, and with your mother whom you lost so young. I can only imagine it.

With love,
Carol

Dear Brother,

Thank you for being in my life while I was growing up. I'll never forget the 5-gallon aquarium you set up for me on Christmas Eve when I was 11 years old with 2 guppies, 2 neon tetras and 2 zebrafish; rides in your Pontiac Tempest convertibles; numerous games of cribbage; playing Twister on the floor of your house on Vine Street in Hammond; the births of your great kids, Brian and Janel; your killing the quarter slots in Lake Tahoe; asking what "chorizo" was then ordering ham and eggs; your eye-rolling puns; and your unfailing hospitality. Glad you lived to see your Cubbies get one championship, even though my Cardinals have accomplished that feat 5 times since I came into the world.

Rest in peace, bro. See you someday on the other side where you'll need to bring your "A" game.

Dave

I met Marvin in the 70s when I moved to Dyer as a young mom. He was kind, gentle, respectful and very funny. He loved the Lord and you saw it in him always. His love for Linda and the kids was so honest and true! I loved singing with him, even the last time we were together. He knew the words and memorized the parts with such a wonderful attitude. I know God has has a beautiful place for him and hopefully some of those Purdue fans were waiting with open arms. Until we meet again!💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
