Delois Bruce Johnson, November 29, 2018 Marvin Bunch has been a genuine and caring friend of our family for many years. He and Bobby Ray grew up together....he was truly a loyal friend... never said a mean word or angry word to anyone that we ever knew. He was so generous, and Mark recalls that as a teenager, Marvin bought a boat for he and his friends to use. Their families enjoyed so many special times together at the Methodist Camp on Sunday afternoon... and many other events. We will miss his kind manner, the way he always made us feel welcome and his many stories that we so enjoyed. We are so saddened by his loss and want anyone who ever reads this to know how much he meant to us. We will miss you, Marvin.... Carol and Mark Martin, November 29, 2018 Very saddened to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Marty Barrington, November 29, 2018 Sending our deepest condolences to your family. It never is easy to lose a loved one, but remember you now have another angel looking over you.
Jeff Lang and Family, November 29, 2018 So sorry for the passing of Marvin. He will be missed by many as he never met a stranger. We remember the many 42 parties that we held back in the 60's so much fun. Our deepest sympathy. Eddie & Phyllis Thomason, November 29, 2018 Marvin was a wonderful person. Marvin always had something positive to say even in the saddest of times. Hats off to Linda and Punkin for the years of love and care you gave to Marvin. I so appreciate you both! I am so sorry I cannot be at the service, I have to be out of town. My deepest sympathy to you all. Love, Kemp Kemp Willard, November 28, 2018 Good friend, good neighbor, and a good man.
