Marvin Lawrence Stougard was born on April 8th in 1936 to John and Helen Stougard in Seattle, WA. Marvin was an older brother to Jan and grew up attending the Church by the Side of the Road with his family. He was involved in Sunday school and accepted Jesus as his Savior as a young boy.

Marvin's interests were in motorcycles, cars and motor sports. He joined the Army on March 2, 1956 and was stationed in France as a mechanic. He returned to the states in February of 1959 and completed heavy equipment schooling and started in that line of work.

He met Charlotte Shaw in 1959 and they married in October of 1960. In May of 1962 his first daughter, Elaine Joy, was born and in February of 1964 his second daughter, Joyce Ann, completed their family. Marvin and Charlotte settled in Sedro-Woolley to raise their girls and purchased land and built their homes on Prairie Road where he lived until his death.

Marvin's interests remained in vehicles and motorsports, while raising his family in church, maintaining his property, and working as an operating engineer. In 1988 Marvin retired from his line of work and began his Amsoil synthetic lubricant business. He, along with Charlotte, built this business into a successful home business offering; retail sales, commercial, and retail accounts. This business continues to operate today.

Marvin and Charlotte were blessed with 6 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

Marvin went to be with his Savior on August 11, 2014 at his home in Sedro Woolley, WA, after a long illness with Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS.
