He was a member of the First General Baptist Church. Marvin will be remembered for his faith in God, devotion to his family, his gift of good humor and great story telling. He was a man of great intellect who had a sharp mind for business. He was both frugal and practical, and enjoyed going to auctions to see what treasures he could find. He never met a stranger and never forgot a face. Marvin always took time to speak to people, shake their hand and look them in the eye. He valued hard work, honesty, and the value of a man’s word.
