My brothers and I knew Marvin and Frank for many, many years from the time we spent in Asbury Park in the “good old days.” He was a wonderful person- always full of great advise and quick wit.

Mostly I remember him from his days at the LaPlum Gift Shop on Cookman Ave. in Asbury Park and the Mr. Peanut shop on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. He had a kind word for everyone. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

With Sincere Regrets to the Goldstein Family
