Marve will be sorely missed. Not only did we share the same birthday we also shared the same interests. He was a joy to be around and I'll miss his heavy going demeanor and sense of humor.

To the family of Marvin Ray Britton, we send our deepest and sincerest condolences on the loss of your husband, brother and friend! I grew up in Ironwood and Pepe, as we knew him, was always the nicest person. My husband and I just saw him last at the Father's Day Dance this past June and of course - he made a point to stop by with his lovely wife to say hello.

We pray that your hearts soon be filled with all the wonderful memories and joyful times together with him and celebrate a life well lived.

We pray for strength and encouragement during this difficult time.

Sincerely,

Percy and Cheryl (Toots) Jones
