Not sure what to say?

Judy, I can't even begin to say how much I will miss Marvin. The kids and I are very sad at his passing. They as well as I, love you guys very much. I will miss calling you and having him answer with "Judy it's the 'short friend'". You have never had your teeth cleaned until you had Marvin clean them. When you got out of the chair you new they were good to go. He was one of a kind! Take care of yourself my dear friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr Marvin was gentleman to work for, & I am lucky enough to have some of his gold restorations in my mouth! There will never be another dds with such perfection. He will be missed!

Dear Judy and Family,
There are times in this journey of life that one person makes a special difference and that person was Marvin. My husband and I still have the bridges he made for us so long ago.
To us he will always be a man that was true to his profession, caring to his patients as well as helping other young people at the School of Dentistry. We respected him very much.

In 1963, I had an accident in which I lost most of my front teeth. My parents wanted the best dentist available, and Dr. Johnson was the Man. He worked a miracle in doing what he did for me. I am still using what he built for me and am eternally grateful for his skill and caring approach in making me able to smile again. He had a sign in his office which always made me smile during my visits, "Painless dentistry on the second floor." Of course, his office building was only one...

I still have fillings/gold foils from 40+ years ago. I will always remember how he would tease me about my boyfriends giving me bubblegum causing my cavities. He provided stellar service and he truly enjoyed his profession. Blessings on your family at this time and give you comfort. Becky

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Thank you for your service and for keeping our Country free
