Marvin was an active member of Countryside Christian Fellowship. He and Patty enjoyed traveling the country and farming throughout his life. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and could frequently be found at their numerous events. He served on the Clinton Township Trustee Board for 15 years.
