Marvin knew adversity throughout his life battling rheumatic fever as a child, being shot in the leg as a teen- ager, which almost resulted in the loss of his leg, and then battling rheumatic fever a second time when his children were young. These bouts of rheumatic fever most likely contributed to his health problems in recent months. Marvin had a great sense of humor and delighted in playing pranks on people. He and his brothers enjoyed dressing up on Halloween, even as adults, and visiting unsuspecting neigh- bors and aunts and uncles. He was always up for fun, making late night visits to watermelon patches and plac- ing a goat in his uncle's barn (and for those of you who don't know, cows DON'T like to go into a barn where a goat is or has been!!!). He also loved playing softball, was an awesome pitcher and was a long-time member of the Dispatch-Oak Creek softball team, holding the distinction of being the oldest member on the team by playing well into his 50s.
