Marvin was a natural salesman. He loved chatting with strangers and I never say him being negative. He was a great husband, a wonderful loving Father and a loving human being. He was very generous to my wife Anita Fiddleman when she was growing up and helped her in many ways. He was so kind to everyone and will be missed MUCH.

By accident, on receiving notice of the death of Maureen Shapiro Rudman, a close childhood friend, I came upon the obituary of Marvin Farer, a cousin I had not seen for perhaps 70 years. Marvey was a little older, and lot luckier, than I was. Lucky, because he got all the castoffs of Little Lenny's comic books, while I only got those few Supermans and Captain Marvels that Marvey was kind enough to share with me. As I think of him today, on the day of his death, I'm feeling sorry that I never properly thanked him for those comix, or forgave him for preferring Archie over Superman. R.I.P. Marvin Farer, all is forgiven. --Adrianne Aron www.adriannearon.com
