Marvin was a very outgoing man all of his life.  In his younger years, he worked as a logger and a fisherman but he most enjoyed working on and fixing cars.  Marvin liked going to the casino and visiting with his family and friends.  Watching the Minnesota Vikings and wrestling on TV was one of his favorite things to do.  He was always very comical and had a great sense of humor that will definitely be missed.
