He Was my whole life. As a kid he raised me like a friend we dI’d everything together. Baseball, swimming,Biking, I could tell him anything and he truly understood me as a person. When he was diagnosed I learnt all that I could as quickly as possible so I knew what to do and to expect and how to help. I was proud to be his caregiver. I was honoured to go everyday and do his feedings and go to the hospital and recite his information… I thought I had more time but I was wrong. I am relieved at how he passed… quietly, sleeping, surrounded by loved ones but nothing will ever replace the hole in my heart.


He was my Grandpa and My best friend he was always had a smile on his face and could never frown he was so funny and intelligent Im just happy he doesnt have to suffer love and miss you grandpa?¤?

When I first met Marvin at Leduc Works he was the first person to reach out and be friendly and show me the ropes. When we moved to LINX I watched Marvin continue to do this with all the new people, always encouraging and a friendly greeting. He always took time to make others feel good, no matter how he was feeling. I also admired his relationship with Gerry, he was a devoted family man and spoke so highly of his wife and family. He will be missed.

I had the pleasure of meeting Marvin in 2005 at leduc works. Marvin always brought a smile to my face, made me laugh, and got me through some pretty silly situations! Always enjoyed bumping into Marvin in and around leduc. Loved to hear about the grand kids and always telling me how awesome his house looked at Christmas and to come see it! He was such a hard working, loving and caring man. He will deeply missed by many people. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends at such a difficult time. Marvin’s memory will forever live in my heart.


It brings sadness to hear of the loss of a great man who struggled in what seems such a short time with ALS.
I send my most heartfelt condolences to each of you at this difficult time.
May he Rest in Paradise and be the angel to watch over each of you as he did here in earth. I will am proud to say I was one of Marvin’s Martians.
Hugs to each of you, an extra warm fuzzy one for my dear friend Daisy aka Jen.
