Marvin Carl Dahlstrom, age 83, passed away peacefully on May 9, 2020. He was a resident of Gurnee, Illinois. He was born on August 2, 1936 in Chicago, Illinois to Carl Eric Dahlstrom and Ellen Gurine Larson.
Beloved husband of Viktorija Alijauskiene. Loving father of Christine Donzelli (Dahlstrom) and Brandon Dahlstrom. Cherished brother of Judy Ericson and Harlan Dahlstrom. He left behind many grandchildren and a great-grand daughter, Chloe Arnold. He will be dearly missed by his family, friends, and all who knew him.
Upon graduating High School, Marvin was drafted into the United States Army where he proudly served for 2 years. Due to his outstanding service and loyalty to the United States of America, he met the strict requirements set forth by the Congress of the United States for Membership in the American Legion.
Marvin Dahlstrom followed his father’s footsteps to become a Freight Train Conductor in the Railroad Industry for 38 years. He loved to spend his time traveling, fishing, and golfing. He was an extremely caring man and showered his loved ones with flowers. He never missed an opportunity to make them feel special. Marvin helped many people during his life and will forever live on in their hearts.
Marvin has extra special cherished memories with his son Brandon. Some special memories include countless fishing trips in the streams, rivers and lakes of Wisconsin. Wonderful golf memories, including great rounds and memories with Carl Ericson. Brandon grew up playing many sports, but mostly ice hockey with treasured moments both on and off the ice with his dad. They shared an interest in aviation and attended numerous air shows together, including the renowned EAA events for many summers in Oshkosh, WI. Special memories were made at Blackhawk games back at the "Old Barn" and then the new United Center; in addition to discovering the sights and sounds of several away cities and arenas: the old Joe Louis in Detroit, the old Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, the old Montreal Forum, and the old Met Center Bloomington, Minnesota. Great golf and hockey trips were taken to Phoenix, Tampa, and Miami as well as many Cubs and Sox games over the years.

I will miss hanging out with you. I will miss playing with you. I will miss all of our Rainforest Cafe, Cracker Barrel, and Baker Square trips. I will always remember the story you told me about when I was first born. You told me you came to see me and kissed my little toe toes. I love you so much, I will never forget you. Every night when I pray I will talk to you and remember our special moments together.
Love You Forever,
Your Little Chloe
