On behalf of the Hootman Family and my father John, we wish to express our sadness to Millie, Debbie and Tony, in Marvin’s passing. He was a great neighbor and friend to John and Carol over the many years they both resided on Lake Winnebago. He was a kind man with a wonderful sense of humor. I will remember how easily he laughed and the special visit he and Millie paid us this past summer at the lake. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Our most sincere condolences to Millie, Debbie and, Tony during this time of loss. Uncle Marvin was one of the truly good people we have had the pleasure and honor to have in our lives. He was easy to talk to and always seemed to have the right thing to say (well unless the Packers were playing poorly). He will be dearly be missed. R.I.P. Marvin.

My most sincere sympathies to Millie, Deb and Tony at this difficult time. Everyone knows that Marvin was a great guy, he always had a smile on his face and was full of good jokes and one liners. I always enjoyed seeing him and Millie in the past at weddings and other family get togethers. He will truly be missed.
