Uncle Bill....Uncle Bill....all the kids in my family called Marvin, Uncle Bill. Always a joy to be around with that big smile making us laugh through the nite. He and Darnell would come though the gate in our backyard talking and laughing the whole time they were there. We would laugh til the tears rolled. I will miss the many laughs we shared with those men.

Wanda, I know your heart is heavy. You have our sincerest condolences. All the best to u and your family from ours.

Here again we all are reminded that we never know the day nor the hour. Yet we are saddened and full of mourning of our beloved classmate and friend who has crossed over to the other side. Marvin's legacy of having a kind spirit, being full of laughter, having great communication skills and a smile for everyone he encountered will be remembered by many. God bless and keep the family as Marvin REST in peace.

My condolences to the Tipton family. You are in my prayers and I'm praying that Gods love will comfort your hearts during this most difficult time. Marvin was one of the best guys I've known he was a true classmate and a wonderful person. He stood up for me when I was being bullied in elementary and I've never forgot his kindness.

My classmate since Brunswick Elementary. He was the real deal. I saw him a couple of months ago we talked for a few and hugged and mentioned seeing one another at the next reunion. No one one knew he would be gone so soon. I pray that God comforts and strengthens his loved ones during this difficult time. Until we meet again RIH
