It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of my beloved husband of 47 years, Father and Grandfather at home with his loved ones by his side. Marven worked many jobs all across Canada and working in the woods. Marven volunteered at the Glace Bay Food Bank for the past 30 years, it was one of his greatest passions helping people. Marven was well known as The Music Man, he played music all over this great town with his guitar and had the voice of a song bird. He loved old country music and he even wrote his own song: The Streets of Glace Bay. Marven was survived by his wife, Valerie (Peach) Boutilier; son Colin (Michelle); grandsons Colin Jr., Nicolas, Jonathan, Brian and Dylan; brothers Clifford, Barry (Marlene), Tony (Brenda), Tommy (Biscuit) and Pat; sisters Sandra (Billy) Cook, Gail (Ervin) Hart, Geraldine (Greg) Sharp and Murtle. He was predeceased by his parents Gordon and Francis (Clements) Boutilier; son Marvin James; brothers Blair, Sheldon, Francis and John; sisters Margaret and Wilma; brothers in infancy Wayne, Garland and Blanice. In following Marven’s wishes cremation has taken place under the care and direction of Patten Funeral Home.

Bob MacDougall.
Sorry to hear of Marvin's passing, he was a great guy and I have many fond memories of Marvin and brothers and the Peaches at the Peache's kitchen parties in the 70's where Marvin would play guitar and sing the old songs while Joe and I would accompany on accordian and base guitar and Erne on fiddle and harmonica. Wonderful times back in the 70's will never be forgotten.
Bob.

To Valerie and family,
My deepest condolences on the passing of Marvin. I have many memories spanning many years of conversations about music and life in general. He was a very easy going guy...a true nice guy. RIP my old friend and thank you for helping me all those years ago when I first started playing guitar.
