Marvin was a true gentle man. We saw him every two weeks for 20 years and never grew tired of his quick wit, sarcasm, and big smile. He loved talking about his grandkids Ella and Nate; he was so enormously proud of them and his children David and Kim. He loved to speak of their accomplishments and of all the things they were "Into." He often spoke of Carol and the things they were doing together. He was a real family man and that endeared him to us. We will really miss him. Our sincere condolences to his family! We are sure the great memories they have will keep his spirit alive forever in their hearts.

I was very sorry to hear about Marvins passing. We always greeted each other in the courthouse and shared a joke or story when there was time. He was one of the lawyers I enjoyed seeing at court. My deepest condolences to his family.

I am so sorry to hear about Marvin. He was my attorney during a very difficult time in my life. His warmth and wit brought a comfort and lightness to an otherwise heavy time. I was then, and am still so very grateful for him, and wish his family healing and peace in the wake of this tremendous loss.
