Marvin P. Rich Obituary
July 11, 1945 - December 31, 2015
Marvin P. Rich, 70, of Malibu, passed away 12/31/2015, from complications of a stroke. Marv passed away at the home surrounded by his wife, family and friends. Marv was born in Long Beach, CA, to the late Wayne & Margie (Davidson) Rich. Marv grew up in Yorba Linda, graduated high school in Fullerton, received his MBA at Cal State Fullerton; & pursued a career in IT, finance & corporate strategy. After advancing to EVP level roles at California Federal Bank, and Blue Cross/WellPoint he was recruited to join the executive team at Kmart in Detroit. On the verge of bankruptcy at the time, his contributions in restructuring & saving the company resulted in being recruited to Connecticut as CAO of Oxford Health Plans; and to New York as President/CEO of WebMD. Marv & his wife returned to Malibu in 2001, where he joined HealthNet, Inc., and retired in 2006. We will remember Marv for his humor, his boisterous laugh, larger-than-life personality, his desire to live life to the fullest, his generosity, his awe and wonder of nature & sunsets, his curiosity and passion for seeing the world & organizing exotic vacations, and his pride in his granddaughter. Marv is survived by his wife of 23 years Cheryl (Perry) Rich; stepdaughter, Crystal Evers; and granddaughter, Caitlyn Evers, both of Malibu. He is beloved brother to Waynel Walker & husband Rich of Lomita, CA; and Marcia Lorenz & husband Dick of Woodinville, WA. Marv is also uncle to eight nieces and nephews: Jackie Jackson of Newnan, GA; Beth Wing of Inglewood, CA; Danny Wing of Murfreesboro, TN; Mark Wing of Las Vegas, NV; Connie Anguiano of Harbor City, CA; Chris Kemmling of Shawnee, KS; Katie Lorenz of Fort Worth, TX; and Joe Lorenz of Kenmore, WA. As he requested, his ashes will be scattered at sea, followed by a Celebration of Life & Love, planned for this spring. (post tributes for Marv at www.tribute.com/marvinrich)
