I'm sorry to hear of Marvin's passing. I interviewed Marvin and hired him at Cessna many years ago. We had a great working relationship through the years at Cessna. What a fine gentleman. May he Rest In Peace.

So sorry to hear about Marvin. He was such a gentle, loving person and will be greatly missed. I have such fond memories of staying at Aunt Thelma and Uncle Roy's house when we were kids.
