East Lyme, CT - Marvin Schutt lived by Albert Einstein’s quote, “Look deep into nature…and then you will understand everything much better.” He was most content at his home called 'Inverurie' (cottage-by-the-sea) in Niantic where he and his wife, Marilyn enjoyed the beautiful views of Smith Cove and the company of their family and many friends, always surrounded by music. Marvin loved everything about being on and in the water and spent many happy hours sailing, paddling, motoring and swimming.

He died peacefully on Friday, May 24, 2019 at Masonicare at Mystic after a period of failing health. He was 89.
