Now that I am grown with children of my own, I am so thankful for the way dad raised me and the tremendous values that he instilled in me. More than anything I am thankful that he had a relationship with Jesus. Lee

In loving memory of my father who sacrificed many years of his life for his childrenI will love him forever. What saddens my heart more than anything is that my children will never know him, will never get to garden with him, nor will they ever get to hear his laugh. We all take solace in knowing that he is now with the Lord, but he will truly be missed, especially by his daughter. Love, Roo

Dad stressed the importance of putting service before self from the time I was very young, a belief Im honored to follow by serving in the U.S. Navy. Ill always remember his reminder to extend a hand to those less fortunate, saying Son, you never know where life will lead you one day you too might need a helping hand. Doing things for the right reasons, rather than the reasons were paramount. Put simply, I believe my dad truly understood the value of dedicating his life to serving others, a legacy I know will live on through his children and grandchildren. Guy

Raising three children alone was one thing that attracted me to Marvin. He was a wonderful father and stepfather even though he was demanding. He loved his grandchildren and was sorry he didnt get to see them more often. We had a wonderful 18 years. We could finish each others sentences and enjoyed the same things. It was scary how much we thought alike and always knew what the other one was thinking. He dearly loved his children, his brother Pepper, whom he talked to daily and his sister Sally Anne. I will truly miss the love we shared and all of our wonderful times. Diana
