I had not seen Marv for over 25 years after the demise of Eastern Airlines. We worked in different departments and lived in the same neighborhood along with some other EAL personnel. I had the pleasure of seeing him again on November 23, 2018, at the home of Rich and Terry Mulvihill. There we spoke of the old days. I was impressed that Marv maintained himself slim and trim all these years! I am very sorry we have lost him. A very easy going kind man, with a calm demeanor. By the grace of GOD, Marv will be just fine looking down and rejoicing and protecting his family. I know this is no consolation, but time will heal your pain.
GOD BLESS MARV AND HIS FAMILY. I WILL PRAY FOR HIM.
