We were sadden to hear that Marvin passed away. We have very fond memories of him. We'd be visiting my parents Bub & Shirley Loehr and dad would go fishing with Marvin for the whole day and if they were biting they would clean their fish and have a beer or two. We'd always go out and see how many they caught and talked to them while they cleaned their fish. Marvin and dad taught my son Caleb how to clean fish to get his merit badge for boy scouts. He was a good guy and will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Frances (Loehr) and Caleb Allen
