KENDRICK, Dr. Marvin H., Jr. Of Stow and Martha's Vineyard, formerly of Weston, passed peacefully surrounded by his family on September 26, 2016. He attended Phillips Andover Academy followed by Harvard University and Tufts University School of Medicine. He dedicated over forty years of service as a Physician at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA. He always said "the man who loves his job never goes to work" and he certainly loved medicine. He enjoyed spending time on Martha's Vineyard with his family, fishing and playing the piano. This past summer he achieved one of his life dreams of spending a day on Philbin Beach on Martha's Vineyard with his family while watching his grandchildren play. Beloved husband of Kathleen (Snow) Kendrick. Devoted father of Jeffrey Kendrick of Santa Monica, CA, Julia Kendrick, MD and her fiance Joey LaMartina, MD of New Orleans, LA, and Andrew Kendrick of Boston. Grandfather of Joey LaMartina III and Jack LaMartina. Brother of Susan Austin of Pittsfield and the late Eleanor and Barbara Kendrick. Having touched the lives of so many people with his kindness and brilliance, he will most certainly be missed. A celebration of life will be held at St. Julia's Church, 374 Boston Post Rd., Weston Center, Saturday, Oct. 1 at 11am, followed by a reception in St. Julia's Church Parish Center. Relatives and friends kindly invited. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Marvin H. Kendrick Jr, MD Memorial Fund to Walters Shannon and Jensen, c/o David Jensen, 27 Harvard St., Brookline, MA 02445. Online guestbook at gfdoherty.com. George F. Doherty & Sons Wellesley 781-235-4100
