Marvin is survived by his wife, Dr. Sally Etcheto Porton, daughters Jo Ann (Chris), Patrice (Gregg), and Eliana (Elian), grandson Yeshe Perl and great-granddaughter Orly Perl. Dr. Porton heartily enjoyed boggle, scrabble, crossword puzzles and all manner of board games.

Born in Fresno, California on June 24, 1928, he became an Optometrist and practiced for nearly sixty-four years with private practices in Watts, West Covina, and Burbank, California before retiring in 2015. He will be remembered as an inspiration for his acts of kindness, generosity, and loyalty. His passing leaves a legacy of love and caring to all who knew him.
