To Mikayla and the rest of Marvin’s family: prayers for Peace and comfort. I met Marvin at the Wood Badge course he attended this fall. As a new leader he was excited and overwhelmed at times. But I am so glad he was there, his excitement was contagious and he added a lot to his Fox Patrol and to the troop. I am glad he was walked into my life, even for such a short time. Special hugs to Mikayla, you had a dad who loved you and your step brother. Blessings and Shalom

Oh Marvin I just can’t put this all into reality you were my best friend and brother I never had. I can’t stop thinking about how things were and could of been. I’m soo sorry that I wasn’t around to tell you that you were one of my best friend and how much you meant to me more often. This is the hardest thing I have ever wrote and I hate that it had to be about you. You meant so much to me and to all your friends you was the life of every party we had. I’m gonna miss you sooooo freaky much I don’t really wanna let go but I think it’s to the best angels up there. I love you and hope I see you again some day.

I’ll always remember how you helped with the Girl Scout/Boy Scout St. Patrick’s day parade float for Mikayla, Elyse, Alexia, Cailyn and Dom. You were always there to help all your daughters with Girl Scout stuff and go camping with the troop.

From Jackie Ray...

I will always remember you from growing up in the same neighborhood and going to school together. You were such a nice guy with a heart of gold. Your parents raised you right. I can see you smiling going down the halls of Lawrence High. You were a bowling machine! =) Bowl on with the angels and let them know what you got. Oh and rock on my friend. The last time I saw you was at Rockiest. You loved music and hanging out. Prayers for your daughter and family and let them find comfort during this difficult time.

We were saddened to learn of Marvin’s passing. We knew him and his family for many years as neighbors and then later on as neighbors to Marvin and Mikayla. Our sympathy goes out to his families whom he has left behind as he has moved on to be with God. He will be missed by many.

Marvin. As your cousin in scouting and brother in Wood Badge, I am very sad that you have left us so soon. Your time on earth was well spent, helping others be their best and truly living by the scout oath and law. Rest in peace brother. We will join you one day, but until then, we know that your spirit will endure. Watch over us and inspire us to always do our best and to be prepared.

Hugs to everyone as I will be out of town during the services but you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for blessing me with the most precious gift in our daughter, Mikayla. No matter what you were always a wonderful father. Mikayla will miss you dearly but your kind and loving heart shines and will live on through her. I can have comfort knowing that she has a guardian angel looking over her now. I know that she will grow into an amazing young woman and will make us both proud. Rest easy Marvin and fly high with the angels.

From Louise Pennewell...

When you and Tessa started dating, and married, you gladly became Father to not only Mikala, but Tessa’s 4 children. You always took time to play with them and encourage them, and they love you. You were there for Dom with dyalisis and his kidney transplant. You were there for the Ronald McDonald honor he had, at the Cheifs game. They will never forget you. Rest in Peace, Marvin and thank you for being there for them.

From Charlene Mendell...

I didn’t know you very well but I really enjoyed the night we got to hang out! RIP Marvin!

From Tara Painter...

You were a great friend, will miss you
