I remember playing Farkle and working a crossword puzzle once with Marvin and my neighbor's at my neighbor's place. He had a funny sense of humor and a fast wit about him.  Rest peacefully, Marvin.

I remember Marvin very vividly from our high school days. Marvin was one yr. older than me. We shared many classes and sports together. Always a good time when Marvin was around! I had no idea he was ill. -Keith Coonrod. MHS class of 74.
