Marvin retired from Clopay (Francis Overhead Doors) with 25 years of service and was a lifelong farmer. He was mechanically talented having refurbished many vehicles as a winter hobby. There was never a situation in which he couldn’t fix or repair an item. For enjoyment, he loved to play gin rummy and euchre, cherished giving his dogs gator rides and their companionship. He was like a second father to many relatives who had lost their loved ones. Marvin was a faithful and active member of St. Denis Catholic Church in Versailles attending Mass daily and serving on the church council. He was a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 am Saturday, January 29, 2022, at St. Denis Catholic Church in Versailles with Rev. Fr. Jim Simons celebrant.

It is the wishes of the family that memorial contributions may be made to Versailles Emergency Medical Services or Darke County Endowment Fund for young seminarians. A special thank you to the many caregivers who so lovingly provided care for both Marvin’s and Barbara’s journey to heaven.
