Marvin was a huge part of many childhood memories. All the holidays, summers at the sandpit or the annual pheasant hunt; Marvin was always there. He was always kind, smiling and had something funny to say. He was a strong male role model that I always looked up to. Im truly sad for all of us who lost him but, Im so very grateful for the time and memories Marvin shared with me. He will be missed.
