Marv never met a stranger. He worked in Emmett most of his life selling cars and retired after 30 years with Bork Motor Company. His family and friends will miss his great sense of humor; plants also loved him and his extraordinary green thumb. He and Lois were also passionate together, cheering the BSU Broncos to victory.
A celebration of life is planned in the near future.
