Not sure what to say?

Marve was our best friend for so many years. We met at the U and met regularly in the basement of Shevlin Hall for lunch. We had little contact as we raised our children, he and Jean at 2006 Penn ave So, and we in California. But after that we made many trips together; Hawaii, Wyoming, Europe, northern Minnesota, California,and others we have probably forgotten. After Jean died much too young, we kept it up with Marve alone and with Gloria later. In recent years we drove to Minnesota...


I am so sorry for your loss. I feel that I have gotten to know your father a bit through the stories you have shared over the years. From some of your camping trips when you were young to the more recent situations regarding your fathers changing health status. Thank you for sharing the stories he certainly loved you dearly! Your family is in our thoughts and prayers! My mother sends her condonlences as well. She is thinking of you during this difficult time.

Pat & Roger Charlier

Dear Family of Jean and Marvin,

The good old days pass by so quickly. Jean was carrying Eric when we first met in Graduate School. Repeated cups of coffee helped to build our friendship which strengthened each year at New Year's at the Larson's. It was an annual reinforcement for a four-way friendship when Roger and I escaped from the Minneapolis version of “The 1960's” wild life.

Jean and I agreed on the mystery and detective library. We all learned to let Roger talk...

Our whole family loved Marvin. We send our deepest sympathies and all our love to his family and his friends. It was an honor knowing Marvin and we will miss him very much.

just me in PA

Marvin was one of the very few people I felt comfortable drving me anywhere - I always loved talking with him and listening to his stories, I will miss him alot.

We loved Marv and will miss him very much. Our love to his family.

I was always fond of Marvin. A truly, kind and cheerful man. I'll always remember his huge smile and laugh! A vision hard to remove from my mind, is him walking his big dog (Ulysses) around Kenwood park.My thoughts are with all of the his loved ones, especially his children, Carolyn, Betsy, and Erik.
