Marvin Shappi Obituary
MARVIN SHAPPI Age 91, passed away on October 7, 2012. Marvin was born in Chicago to Meyer and Tillie Shapiro. He was a proud member of Sigma Chi Fraternity at Washington State University. He served as a medical technician in the Army during WWII. He had a long and respected career with the DMV. After retirement, he volunteered for many years helping folks to read. To this day, many of his former students are extremely grateful for his assistance. He loved the big band sound and live musical performances. And, he never passed up the opportunity for a good steak or prime rib. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Lucy, and his children, Jayne and Marv, along with four grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. As he was fond of saying while on the go, "keep smilin". A celebration of life will be held at Acheson and Graham Garden of Prayer Chapel, on Sunday, October 14; visitation at 1PM, service at 2 PM; reception to follow.
