March 31, 1933 ~ February 15, 2013
Surrounded by his family, Marvin passed away peacefully at the age of 79 years. He is survived and will be lovingly remembered by his wife Iris, of 56 years, his three loving children Grant (Christine), Wade, Lynn; ten siblings, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Accepted for pilot training in the Air Force in early 1955, Marvin was a proud member of Air Squadron 440 and served as a Search and Rescue pilot. After more than 10,000 hours and 27 years, Marvin retired from the Air Force in May 1982. Afterwards, for a number of years Marvin worked in the field of navigational air photography.
The family would like to thank all the caring staff at Sturgeon Hospital for their exceptional care and compassion in taking care of Dad.
