Evie and the Winer Family, The world has lost a very special man with Marv´s passing. Marv and Evie were wonderful friends to our family. They always managed to brighten our day. Whether it was traveling together to the Weber Center for a walk around the track sharing stories of their time at CPS, telling jokes, sharing happy family events, trips to library entertainment, breakfasts, or Veteran´s Day festivities, you always knew that time with the Winers was something special and fun. Marv and Evie could always be counted on to help. I will never forget the visits to the hospital when Dad was ill and their many giving ways. Marv was a very special friend and he will always be cherished in our memories.

Marv and Evie provide sweet memories from a sweet and beautiful couple. Just thinking of them brings me smiles. My condolences to his loving family, for a man that will truly be missed.

I have never met anyone in my life with more patience than Uncle Marv. As everyone in the family knows, he taught me how to swim at Golden Arrow Day Camp. This took numerous summers, as I had a rather strong fear of putting my head underwater and letting go of the edge of the pool. Never once did he express any sense of frustration or disappointment at my unwillingness to follow his calm instructions. Finally after several (or was it more than that?) years, his perseverance paid off and I lost the designation of AF (almost floater) and learned how to swim. I thank Uncle Marv for my now life long enjoyment of the water. It was only much later in life that I learned that he was not actually a swimmer. He certainly, however, was the best teacher. I will always be grateful for this gift.

I was saddened to hear about Marv's passing. I was a camper and junior counselor for many years at Golden Arrow. I saw Marv (and Evie and Scott) every day. He was wonderful. Everyone loved him. Marv taught me how to swim when no one else could. My condolences to your entire family.

I carpooled with Marvin when I. taught at Marconi, he was the most patient and kind man I ever knew. He patiently endured Dianne and my singing through many a snow storms. He was one in a million. My deepest sympathy.

I have so many great memories of spending my summers as a kid with Marv at Golden Arrow Day Camp. He was always so great with all of the campers. The Schmidt family sends its prayers to the entire Winer family.
