Marvin SIKES Jr. Obituary
SIKES, Jr., Marvin Marvin Evander Sikes Jr, who passed on Wednesday at 81, will be best remembered for his wisdom, leadership, friendship and expertise with anything on 4, 6 or 18 wheels. He left this world surrounded by his loving wife of 60 years, Carolyn, their children and spouses and their grandchildren. He will be deeply missed, but we are comforted knowing he had said recently, "I've had a good life." After graduating from the University of Houston with a B.A. in Business Administration with a major in marketing, Marvin was employed 25 years with Saunders Leasing System and was vice president of marketing. He then began his own successful company, Sikes Transportation Services, where his 4 Atlanta locations employed almost 80 people. He enjoyed being president of the Kiwanis Club earlier and, more recently, his neighborhood association and a member of the Peachtree Corners Advisory Board. A man of integrity and composure, many people sought him for advice. Marvin, for the past 3 decades, was active in the local Amazing Corvette Club, N. Ga Jaguar Club, Jaguar Society, N. Ga Studebaker Club, and Atlanta Classic Thunderbird Club. He is survived by his loving children: Sherry Kliossis (Angelo), Cissy Boyd (Joseph), Marvin E. Sikes, III and Carrie Knight (Philip). He also leaves behind 8 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Funeral Service will be held Saturday November 12, 2016 at 2:00 pm in the chapel of A.S. Turner and Sons Funeral Home Decatur, GA. The family will receive friends 1 hour prior to the service, In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Canine Adoption Network (N.GA) would be appreciated; 1000 Old Canton Road, Ballground GA 30107.
