Ralph Eugene Marvin 12/02/1948-12/23/2019

Ralph Eugene Marvin, age 71, was born December 2nd, 1948 to Robert and Elva Marvin in Lansing, Michigan. Ralph was one of three children who grew up in Williamston, Michigan, living nearly his entire life in the same home. Ralph was a member of the High School band and later joined the US Army, and fought for our country in The Vietnam War. Ralph had worked for Nabisco, Maytag, and just a few short years ago, retired from Williamston Products Inc. after more than three decades. Ralph was a long time member of The Fraternal Order of Eagles. Ralph was an honorable family man, loving, loyal, honest, and kind to all that crossed his path! Ralph, (“Marv,”) could fix anything presented to him; or, he’d just so happen to have an extra! Ralph was always seen with a smile on his face as he truly enjoyed life and all it had to offer. Ralph shared a deep passion for music, enjoyed gardening, camping and long road trips to Florida. Ralph perfectly balanced an amazing sense of wisdom, with trust, and faith in God. Ralph passed away on the morning of Monday, December 23rd, comfortably at home. Ralph leaves behind his wife of almost forty years, Belinda “Dawn” Marvin, Children: Gail (Doug,) Terrill, Monica Donnelly, and Marshall “Bart,” Marvin. Sister: Mary Ann Marvin, and brother: Richard “Dick,” Marvin. Six grandchildren whom were the sparkle in his eyes, (so many referred to Ralph as “Dad,” and/or “Papa Ralph.”) Grandchildren: Calista Renee Cremeans, Josh Marvin Brennan Jr., Carter Eugene Shepherd, Grace, Thomas, and Ruby June Donnelly. Funeral Services to be held at Gorsline-Runciman Funeral Home, High St., Williamston Michigan. Visitation at 1:00pm, funeral services at 2:00pm Saturday, December 28th, 2019.

ADD A MEMORY
Cathy Eastman-Snider

diciembre 24, 2019

I have so many memories of growing up next door to Ralph and his family. They were always there from the time my parents brought me home. Ralph was my first playmate, my first male friend, a big brother and most of all a really good friend. I remember Mary Ann crawling through the Chicken door into the Clubhouse, where girls weren't allowed, the big mysterious boys place. I remember playing the pinball machines, juke boxes and other cool stuff in the barn. Ralph was always around. We have seen each other through the years and it seemed like it was yesterday, we could talk and talk. I remember Dick hitting Ralph in the head with a dart, I remember cookies in the kitchen and so many other great memories it was a great neighborhood to grow up in. One time I came to Williamston for Christmas and had gone across town to visit a friend, on the way back I stopped at Flepaush and Ralph was in there so we talked and he walked out when I did, I am like Ralph my car is gone, my car is gone, he is like calmly asking where did you park etc..well not being real familiar with a stick, my car rolled across the parking lot, across the street and into a yard, the police were there. Ralph calmly explained to the officer and they let me go but they did follow me to the city limits. I am sure without Ralph I would have had a ticket. Ralph my hero, my friend. I will miss you..just knowing you were still in the neighborhood made things good.
