Marvin was a Brick Mason and Craftsman. He touched many lives with his infinite amount of wisdom and sense of humor. He was impeccably witty. Many of you know he loved to give nicknames. Your nickname became who you were to him. He was a person that you could go to in a time of need, and he dedicated his life to his family. Although he left this life unexpectedly, we hold on to one of his favorite expressions, “Every goodbye ain’t gone.”
The family will have a private service.
