Marvin served in the United States Army from December 3, 1953 to November 29, 1955. In 1956 Marvin married Beverly Johnson of Winthrop, Minnesota. He and his wife enjoyed square dancing very much.
From the North Pole to Alaska to the banks of the Panama Canal, from the waters of the Pacific to the waters of the Atlantic, from the shimmering waters of the Namekagon to the small ponds of Scrub Town, in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul, from Greece to Rome, from the words of Martin Luther where the Bible was made available to reach everyone, from the countries of the British Isles and Scandinavians, to a family reunion in north Norway he viewed the wonders of Gods creation with his wife Beverly. Sing unto the Lord a new song.
Marvin met and served with many dedicated citizens in the community, neighborhood, school and church. These people are the glue that binds a community together. Serve the Lord with Gladness. Marvin enjoyed square dancing.
