Dad, it's been a year now since your passing and today would have been your 88th birthday. Thanks for being such a wonderful, loving father to me. I miss you every day but I know all is well, you are truly at home, your heavenly home. Think I need to go and have a frosty at Wendy's in your honor! Love ya, Linda
I thought so highly of Marv & Betty. They were always a kind, loving & forgiving presence & example in our little, (& young) Evergreen Christian Church in Vancouver, quite a few years ago! I remember his testimony.
I remember his humbleness. I remember how sweet he was when a few of us gals would come over to their house in Vancouver to paint in the sun room with Betty. I felt so honored when Betty & Marvin asked me to sing "This Little Child" at their church in Beaverton, OR several years ago. My Husband & I used to walk up to their cabin when we were staying at Winema Christian Camp. Now, when we are at camp, I look up there and think of them both. I am sorry that I was not aware of Marv's passing when it occurred. I would have loved to have been at the services to celebrate Marv's life w/his family & friends, as I did at Betty's passing. Memories of these two dear people will always be special to me. God bless the Albaugh family.
Dad I miss you dearly...every moment of a day brings such pleasant memories to my heart and mind. Thank you for being my loving Dad who always welcomed me with a smile and a greeting..whether in bad times or in good! Thank you for being such a loving Grandpa to each of my children, always with a hug and a smile! We will continue to be blessed because of who you were, you have left your legacy in each of us! Merry Christmas Dad, I love you!
You were a blessing to so many, as were all of your family. I held you in high esteem then and will continue to hold your memory dear.
Your life was a testemony to Faith in action.
I remember waking up in the morning finding grandpa sitting on the couch that was next to the kitchen. He was drinking coffee and reading the bible. Sometimes he was training Abby on a new trick. He was so proud of her learning how to stand up, run around the coffee table and rolling. I loved watching him.
Grandpa and grandma welcomed me into there home and hearts as if I was one of there own gradnchild. I miss them so much. As I sit in this room that was once blue, typing on a computer that sits on grandpa's old desk, you will always be with me. I miss you both so much and am thankful for the love, compassion and the gentleness you have taught me. I am thankful our son could be with you, learn from you and feel your love that you have given me. Thank you! I love you both and miss you so much.
I miss so much about Dad. Miss our morning coffee's. He so faithfully made coffee each morning and went to his yellow room to read, sleep, pray and drink coffee with me. Always telling me to have a great day when I left he and Sadie to go to work. Thanks Dad.
Dad, miss you every day now, but know you are well. You finished the race well. I'm sure many of your friends, and family are with you around the Throne right now! Rejoicing, even while we feel the loss. In all circumstances, we give thanks. Lee
The one thing I loved about Grandpa was his ice cream! Christmas was always special because he would be santa
the Hot tub
The beach cabin, naps, gospel music, grab bag on Christmas day, praying, his smile, seeing him at church, his stories, his joy and compassion, his forgiveness and understanding, his faith that could move mountains, his love for his family, friends, and strangers, watching him read his bible, witnessing how tender and loving he was with grandma, how he said my name; these are all of the things that I cherish about my grandpa. His legacy lives on through my family and with all of those that have met him. He touched lives with a single smile. I am so blessed to have known him.
Praying that the Lord tucks you under the very shadow of His wing - and brings you comfort and peace while you wait to meet up with Marv again (for eternity). What a day of rejoicing that will be!
Uncle Lee and Aunty Cheryl Albaugh and extended family: I just want to offer my sincere condolences. Baba Albaugh I know was man that served the Lord faithfully and was exemplary to many. Particularly, to my father and through him, our family. Thanking God for men like Baba Albaugh who finished the race well.
God Bless and Love
I watched the Oregonian for obit & funeral info but it was not there so we missed. I am local historial who started working with Marv on an Albaugh story. I would like to connect with family member so that I can finish the story. Please contact me. Patti Waitman-Ingebretsen-503-341-0039- Multnomah Historical
When Faith Center was preparing to move into our new space on TV Highway in Aloha, Pastor Rich invited members to come walk through and pray over the empty spaces with lines marked out for classrooms, kitchen and offices. We walked through the spaces, prayed, then gathered in the space which would become the sanctuary. I stood next to Marv as we formed a big circle and held hands. Pastor Rich prayed, and in the silence after, Marv started singing one of his favorite old hymns. Those who knew it gradually joined in. We all knew that's when our new space had been officially dedicated to the Lord - with Marv's heart and voice. He will be missed but his heart and legacy lives on.
Sorry I missed the memorial service for my long-term friend, Marv. My notice went to my spam folder. I particularly remember our many meetings as fellow officers of NWCEA. Fred Tinker
We join all who are mourning Mr. Marvin Albaugh. From this side of life, it is some great loss. But from the eternity side it is a great gain because he has received what no one can get away from him. He is with the Lord for ever. From the team at the MCLTC.
We had the privilege of meeting Marvin when our lifegroup did a yard cleanup at his place. What a kind, loving man. We know Lee much better and it is clear through Lee what a fine man Marvin was. He raised a son who loves God and works hard to share the Gospel. It was fun looking through all the photos. From babyhood to his elderly years surrounded by loving family. The ones of him relaxing at the beach brought a smile to my face. Goodbye for now Marvin. May your legacy live on here.
I was asked to lead the senior's choir while another more suitable leader could be found. One person in the choir was not too charitable & Marv always came to my defense when this occurred. He was so fun & liked to joke & Betty would get after him! I
loved them both & enjoyed his kindness. I'm so happy for him right now! Halelujia!
Lee - The pictures of your father say it all. He was a happy and loving person. "Happiness not only awaits us in Heaven but their is joy in the journey". You and your family are in our prayers. Bill & Jan Ellingson
I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Albaugh only once when I was at a BCC Lifegroup BBQ. Although our visit was brief, I felt that I'd known him for years. I look forward to meeting him again in heaven.
A sister in Christ
my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will miss his smile and sense of humor. love, Priscilla
I will miss your dad, he was a special man, but I know he will be helping your mom hold down the fort until we all get there. Isn't that a great thought.
Although we did not know Marv well, we are a part of his "church family" and shared memories will forever be in our hearts.
What an honor it has been to know Marvin. He reminded me so much of my own grandfather, a sweet, kind, faithful man who always had a smile and such warmth shining through. I will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his dear family. Jan LaRocca
Marvin, a man full of Love, will be missed, Gregory and Teresa Scott Family
I met Marvin in the 70's and spent nearly 40 years watching him and his family grow in business and in God. He never strayed from the faith he believed in and was loyal to all who came into his presence. We will miss him very much.
Dear Janelle, Linda, Vanessa, Sandy, Lee and your Families,
Our sympathy is extended to all of you in the loss of your Father, Father-in-law and Grandfather! We praise the Lord with you that he knew and loved the Lord Jesus Christ and that he is with the Good Shepherd who has met all his needs for eternity. We also rejoice in the joyous reunion he and Betty are having in the presence of the Lord.
Love in Jesus,
Joe and Susan Core
We remember Marvin well from our first days in Oregon. He was a true Saint with an open and honest personality. We join in mourning his passing from the is life, but rejoice that he has been the eternal life with our Lord! Our thoughts are with Marvin's family and friends!
We praise our GOD for the life of Mavr.
His heart of service & generosity carried over to his children who are a great testimony to our Lord Jesus Christ. We celebrate with you in memory of Marv.
My favorite memory: Marv & Betty as Gramma and Grampa at Royal Family Kids' Camp. You know it's an important role and he has done well with it when one of the little boys wants his picture taken with him while grampa is sleeping in the lawn chair. Hugs to all the family during this time.
Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
