Ruth and family, it was always a joy to have Marvin in the Memorial High School Class of 1957. Actually Marvin and I went from first grade all the way through high school together. He was always good natured with a big smile and funny little remarks. We all loved him. I’m sending my sincere condolences and love to all of you.

Marvin was a wonderful neighbor. He was kind and always had a smile you can't forget. He and Ruth based their lives on faith, family and friends and this was evident in their way of life. For sometime now, we have missed seeing him putter around the yard and occasionally, rescue him from his mower! Time and illnesses alter our lives, but his goal was always to meet God head on. So Marvin, we will miss you here, but welcome home.
