I have known Marvin for at least 36 years, if not more. Many of his friends knew him from Lyle’s 66 in Eudora, the Eudora Grain Elevator and as a truck driver. I knew Marvin (The Dirty Old Man) and Donna (his better half) as very good friends. Just adding some humor, as he would have done! Marvin was the kind of person who would do anything for anyone. He will be dearly missed, but we will smile when we hear his name and share the memories. Love and hugs for Donna, Chuck and all his family from Sharon Munday & Harold Barnes
r.i.p. you will be missed
I remember being at my Dad’s/Marvin’s work during the summer. Marvin was always kind to me and my sister. He always had a cigarette and Pepsi in his hand. Marvin would tell us stories about his adventures with fireworks, or just what was going on with him. He had such a patient kind heart.
I’ll remember Marvin for his quick smile and his love of visiting. He was always glad to see you and to share some stories. We’ll miss the friendly wave from his living room anytime he would see us walk by the house. Prayers for Donna, Chucky and the rest of the family.
