I'm so sorry for your loss.

I got to your Marvin from Congregation Shir Ami in Austin. He was a wonderful man and I always looked forward to seeing him at services or one of the events we had. His cheerful manner made my day. I was so sad when he and Fran moved away.

He will definitely be missed!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Marvin from the temple in north Texas, and he asked me to accompany him on keyboard in 2018 as he sang "If I Were a Rich Man" and we had such fun. I enjoyed his fun and friendly spirit and I enjoyed hearing about his musical adventures in his youth. May his memory be for a blessing.

Sending condolences to your family from my sister Anne and I. Many good memories of our families on Chandler Avenue, Linden and on Apgar Terrace in Rahway. My sister vividly recalls his practicing the saxophone? in the basement while she was with Marilyn. Our parents were very close friends with Marv's parents all their lives. May his memory be for a blessing.

I did not know your Dad but I am sure he was very special. He raised a kind and loving daughter so that speaks volumes about his character. May peace be with you and your family.

Anyone who knows my dad knows that he was a great husband,father, friend & mentor.
He is survived by his wife Fran & children, Jill, Steven & his wife Amy; 5 grandchildren Cameron, Spencer, Carter, Paige, and Tyler. Fran & Marvin’s son Craig passed away in 1995. He also leaves behind sisters Marylin & her husband Andy Herf, & Phyllis Nadel. He also leaves behind nieces and nephews, Karen Sherman, (her children Jessi & Dana), Marc & his wife Caroline Sherman (their children Sarah & Moriah), Michael & his wife Coleen Sherman (their children Ryan and Casey); Brian & his wife Elizabeth Herf and Amy Herf-Barker. His fur babies 3 cats and 2 dogs.

While in Austin, he overcame several obstacles, to include a 7 way bypass, which he recovered very well from. He had a lot of friends in Austin who are very dear to the family. He loved to play cards with his friends, and do things with the temple. They next move was to DFW, closer to family. But his heart was still in Austin, so he struggled with the move, it was the right move as he had 30 hospitalizations in 3 years.


I look up to my father as he was the greatest father, friend and mentor, even though he was honestly a grumpy person!! My cousins used to call him Uncle Zilla as in Godzilla.. because he ALWAYS was grumpy when we were growing up! The name fit him perfectly, like the grinch he had a heart of gold.

A special thank you to Marc Sherman for helping Mom with all of the hours spent working on paperwork prior to his passing; and Amy Herf-Barker for her talent of medical clarity, transposing everything that the Doctors and Nurses!!
