I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Marvin when he was a custodian at Northern Lehigh. What a great guy! May he rest in peace.

Marvin was an excellent custodian who did his job with precision and passion. I will fondly remember our chats while he worked for many years at the high school. Marvin was a gem; he was a friend to all. I can still hear his massive ring of keys jangling down the hallway! May he Rest In Peace! My thoughts and prayers are with Marvin’s family.

I remember your father well.  He was a gentleman with such a kind heart, and I always appreciated our conversations while he was working out at Peters.  My prayers are with you and your family.

I’m going to miss your laugh when I did something stupid and you couldn’t stop laughing at me. We had good times at all the cookouts and blockshoots! You will be missed. R.I.P. Marvin
