Known Marv since I was 8 and delivered him his morning paper. Always tipped me with a silver dollar at Christmas. Enjoyed working with him when he ran the credit union and I had the Press Citizen...and then later when we both worked at Iowa Realty. He was one of the world's good guys.

I've never met Marv but, heard only good things about him. He raised
a super nice son named Jim. My heart goes out to you Jim.

My first boss and a great guy to work for at the credit union. Prayers to his children, which he talked about often. God has His arms around each of you.
