Read more about the life story of Marvin and share your memory.
In loving memory of our husband, father and grandfather, Marvin Jarvis, who passed away on July 6th, 2023, just two days after his 91st birthday.
Marvin was the devoted husband of Rosmarie Hatch, with whom he shared 67 years of love and friendship. Their bond was an inspiration to all who witnessed it, a testament to the power of love. Marvin is survived by Rosmarie, their daughters Debbie, Darcine, and LaDawn, their son Wayne, and his sister Earlene Wahl Rhoton. He is preceded in death by his parents, M. Earl and Beatrice Jarvis, his brother Jerry, and his youngest son Dayle.
Marvin was a brilliant man and his career was as a computer engineer. He was a skilled mathematician with an advanced degree in economics. He served his country proudly as a United States Marine where he served at home and abroad when he was deployed to the Korean War. Many people are surprised when they learned Marvin was a Drill Sargent. It seemed contrary to his soft spoken demeanor.
Marvin will miss tending to his yard, silver smithing, designing creative projects for his wife, making repairs around the house, and scowling about the latest political nonsense in the news.
Marvin will not miss at all “persons of questionable intelligence,” waiting in lines, poor customer service, and sticky doorknobs.
Marvin loved to learn and was a student of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He had a deep and abiding love for his Savior. When it came to preaching, Marvin spoke very few words, choosing instead to let his actions speak volumes about what it means to serve, to follow, to lead, and to love.
Marvin leaves this world with a beautiful yard, a weedless garden, and with a loving tear on the cheek of each and every member of the 5 generations he leaves behind.
