I got to know Marv while playing pool in the G.M. pool league on S. Westnedge, about 14-15 years ago. I had not seen Marv for a few years until I played in the Allegan Pool league, out of the V.F.W. there. The last couple of years, he sub many times on our team and was great to catch back up with him. I will always remember his laugh and willingness to help on a difficult shot. Very sorry to hear of his passing.

So sorry for your loss, I will miss him dearly he was a wonderful man and I really enjoyed being a part of his care team at allegan county medical this past few months. Marv and I would joke around alot and he would tell me that he was going to box my ears, and then we would laugh about it. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Sorry to hear of Marv’s passing. Worked many years with Marv, always full of P & V! When I seen that smile & twinkle in his eyes I knew something was either gonna come out his mouth or he was gonna do something that was going to make me laugh . Our Lord is having an good chuckle with Marvin, that’s for sure. Treasure your memories, hold each other close. It was a blessing to have worked with Marv, he will always bring a smile to heart.
