  1. Little Marvin the family called him, because his dad was big Marvin. He was my cousin. I remember he had lots of energy! He always had a big smile just like his dad. I am so sorry. He died too young! Thinking of the family and sending prayers!

  8. My name is Eddie Howell. I played football with Marvin, and graduated with him from Robbinsville High School in 1973. He kept us all laughing with his antics, on and off the field. I am sorry to hear of his passing, and will always remember him as a good guy, and good friend!
