Marvin was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved being outdoors and enjoyed hunting, gardening, fishing, and playing golf. Marvin and his wife Sadie spent many years on the open road as truckers, having been to all but four of the continental states where they enjoyed many beautiful sights together. After retirement, Marvin enjoyed traveling to the mountains with Sadie where they would often spend several nights at a time. Marvin was a godly man that served as a deacon and Sunday school teacher at Kinza Memorial Baptist Church. Most of all, Marvin loved his family and will be missed by all that knew him.
