I worked with Marvin at the Durham Board since he got hired and I made his retirement clock when he retired. I can always remember Marvin coming down the hall of the shop every day and I would say "what's happening Marvin"? and he would always say "everything happens when your a plumber" and we had a chuckle . Just being around Marvin brightened your day and he presented such a calm ,joyous way of life.He was so easy to have a conversation with and he would always ask how my family was doing. He knew his job well and would always be there for you if needed.We had many good times working together I so respected him and he is someone I will always remember.What a great friend he was. My condolences go out to his family

I was saddened to hear of your Husband/Father's passing. I remember Marvin as a very kind, gentle soul who was quick to strike up a conversation and quick with a smile. Mom and Dad (Gladys and Earl Fice) thought very highly of him. May your wonderful memories keep him alive in your hearts.

Dear Aunt Eleanor, Paul and Robert,
I'm sorry to learn that Uncle Marvin has passed away. He was such a great part of all of our lives. I always looked forward to having a visit when coming back east. And he was in quite good form when I was there last September. You are all in our thoughts. Love, Craig and Michele.

I have very fond memories of Marvin, he was always a friendly, kind, gentle man. Always greeted us with a smile and with great interest in what was new in our lives. I know Mom & Dad (Gladys & Earl) thought very highly of him, and he was a treasured member of our extended Mountjoy family. Thinking of you and hoping that wonderful memories will comfort you all during this time.
Janet (Fice) & Terry Hodder & family
