My condolences to the family. Losing the ones we love is never easy. May God continue to provide you the strength needed now and in the days ahead.
To the family and friends of Marvin, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain and death (Rev 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
Ron and I will miss Marvin. He was always so pleasant and loved to hear stories about him and my father. They both had such a wonderful sense of humor. Rest in peace Marvin; you will be missed.
Very sorry to hear about Marvin's passing. My deepest sympathy to the family. I was the youngest cousin and missed the early years. I will always remember his laugh. Enjoyed our phone conversations when he would call. Rest in peace Marvin.
So sorry to hear about Marvin's passing. Condolences to the family. We shared early memories . I would pick him up in DC and we went to a Redskin game once. His ability to shoot clay pigions was questionable too . He came very close to our dad's ear on uncle Harvey's farm. He got his foot run over at the gas station while counting train cars . Found memories. Stopped in to visit if his journey driving brought him thru Lima Ohio. I will miss you next trip to Neb. Rest in peace dear cuz.
Every time we would visit the farm, if he was milking, he would invite you into the barn and you would get squirted with milk. Loved to tease me, and I loved it when he laughed at me cause he was so proud he got me. Such a nice man I will never meet. RIP Marvin, go rest high! Lana Murphy
