I was unaware until today that Uncle Marvin had passed away. I am so sorry I did not get to meet him. I am the daughter of his older brother Bill (William R. Davis, Jr.--they called him Junior), who passed away in 2008. I am very sorry for your loss.
I started at rossoe in 05 started a new job didn't know what to expect.then I met marv.he was easy to talk to and a good listener.marv taught me alot.it hard to say goodby to a man that was my mentor.I work with marv all the way till he didn't drive anymore even tho marv didn't drive I used to go pick marv up every day.we did that for awhile till marv said maybe we should stop becouse we didn't want me to get in trouble but I didn't care.it just didn't feel right with out him ther with me.but that's how marv was.I realy miss him when he wasent around.even when marv was home I still call him every day just to talk.I ask marv about stuff just to keep him sharp.I tell you marv was still sharp.rossoe was not the same w/out marv.marv took a lot of pride in what he did at rossoe.to me marv was rossoe.I didn't want marv to leave I also didn't want him in pain.I learn a lot from marv and for that I will never forget him.too my mentor.this no goodby this is until we meet again we did so much stuff together .p.s hey bro I finally met yur son jhon n his wife n kids.love u miss u always your friend.
I have been a driver for Rosssoe since 1998, and was blessed to know Marv during that time. I drive out of the north yard, so we didn't see Marv every day, but quite often. I have missed seeing his smiling face these last few years. Marv was a pleasure to talk to and work with. I know it really bothered him when he had to stop driving, but he kept working without complaint, and always had a smile to greet you with. I am very sorry for your loss. He was a good man.
The Washington State Veterans Cemetery extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Marvin E. Roth for your loss, to honor his service (Viet Nam) to our country and our patriotic hero.
Rest in peace Marvin,it was an pleasure working with you.
