Our sincere Love and Prayers, Janice and Nolan Nolan and Janice Louthan, September 19, 2011 I have such very fond memories of my Uncle Marvin. Always very kind and interested in what was going on in our lives. He was such a good patriach to our extended family. He was the one you called when there was a death in the family to let everyone else know. He was the family photographer,documenting our gatherings, making sure all of his siblings got copies of pictures to preserve the memories. He went through so many struggles in his life, but always blessed the people around him with his perserverence and determination to be a blessing to others. We will miss him very much. As I kissed my Mom goodnight the night she passed from this life, I slipped up and said, "Goodbye Mom. I love you." She looked at me and smiled, "Don't say goodbye. Say so long". So long, Uncle Marvin. It won't be long 'til we'll be seeing you again. Love, David David Strecker, September 19, 2011 I remember the good times we use too have at the country parties we attended every summer at one another homes on Friday nights. The adults made ice cream and visted and the kids played party games. Also the gatherings of the whole family at Granddad's and Grandma's on Sundays all the good home made food. vickie ann (Long) Bergner, September 19, 2011 Dear Shane, we are so sorry for the loss of your Dad.
