Marvin was born in Montreal, Quebec, on April 12, 1944, and lived in Montreal until the summer of 1975 when he moved with his family to Calgary, Alberta. He passed suddenly on June 8, 2020 at the age of 76. He is survived by his wife Caroline, daughter Keri (Graeme), son Jeff (Erin), granddaughter Leigh, and sister Lorna (Nelson). Marvin was loved greatly, and will be missed by all his family and friends. His passions included model railroads, painting, watching the backyard birds, exploring the backroads of Alberta, and loving his pet dog Charlie. At Marvin’s request there will not be a service, his ashes will be spread in the mountains of Alberta by the family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Make a Wish Foundation or the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
