He was preceded in death by his mother, his brother Dennis Durrett, and nephew Jeremy Wright.

He attended Blue Ridge Community College for two years and was employed for 40 years until his death by The Hershey Company in Stuart’s Draft.

On September 16, 1994, he married Diane Phillips, who survives.

Marvin was an avid turkey and deer hunter and trout fisherman. He had a particular passion for turkey hunting and tying fly-fishing lures. Taxidermy was an enjoyed hobby for many years. He loved hiking and being in the outdoors. Named “Class Clown” of his 1973 Turner Ashby High School graduating class, he was always known for his hilarious sense of humor. He had an unending repertoire of jokes on every topic and a talent for drawing cartoons. In recent years, one of the joys of his life was playing with his two young granddaughters.

Honoring his wishes, he will be cremated and a private family gathering will be held at a later date to celebrate Marvin’s life. He was dearly loved by his family and friends and will be greatly missed.

Marvin was a really great uncle. Quick with a joke, fun to be around. I remember many hunting and fishing trips with him as a young man. You will be missed Uncle Marvin.

Marvin ( aka..Marvelous) was one Hell of Person and Man. We met through our time at Hershey together. Marvin had a love for weight lifting and was eager to share his knowledge with a skinny kid who was just getting started out. I can honestly say, I tried to soak up every bit of his wisdom I could and he never hesitated when anyone asked for his help. Marvin always had a funny story or joke and he knew just how to tell it which made it even more funny to listen to. Thank you Marvin for everything, and most of all your friendship. You will be greatly missed Marvelous
