Starting in first grade, Marvin was my classmate at Christ Lutheran School in West Bloomfield and then Weyauwega High. Great guy with good sense of humour. I remember him playing tuba in the high school band. Every class reunion I attended, he was there and always took time to visit. Sending prayers and sympathy to his loving family at this time.

I remember Marvin well, as I was in highschool with Bruce and Brain. I spent some time getting maple syrup with Bruce, but always felt welcomed by Marvin.

So sorry to hear of Marv's passing. I worked with Marv at the mill and was his partner for some time. I will always remember his great sense of humor and dedication to his family.

I worked with Marv for all of his 43 years at Fox River Paper and am proud to say that besides being my coworker he was my friend. My wife Carol and I spent some time with him and Joan and always enjoyed their company. He will be missed by many of us.

Sorry to hear of Marvin's passing, many memories including his underpowered little nash rambler and Marvin opening his door, sticking his left leg out to push to get the car moving, driving us to plainfield for roller skating at a roller rink there, Marvin seemed to be , involved in many of the things we did in high school and for a few years after. I think I even worked with Marvin at Weyauwega milk products. It's been 60 years since high school and many of my memories include Marvin, including taking a couple of watermelons off the truck in his yard to eat so we didn't have to coon from a neighbor. That was Marvin always thinking of others.
