Condolences to Becky, Thomas , Marvin’s mom and family. I first met Marvin in early childhood, as we both rode on the same school bus for quite a few years. He was always very friendly and sociable with everyone. He mentioned more than once that he loved strawberry ice cream —and he would be eating it at the St. Mark ice cream socials over the years! Praying for the family. Rest In Peace Marvin!

I will miss seeing Marv drinking a beer at the bar, laughing and enjoying his coworkers. I loved giving him a hard time...he was such a good sport!❤ his laugh will be missed.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. Marvin was a wonderful guy - and a joy to be around. I moved away from the area in the 1980's, but Marvin's name often comes up with smiles all around when discussing the old Comer Rd. Prayers for his family.

I remember running track back at Wayne HS with Marvin. He had a great attitude in everything that he did. He will be truly missed. I offer my prayers to his wife and son during this difficult time and that you may be able to celebrate his life and have peace that he is with our Father in heaven.
