Marvin took great pride in both his science fiction memorabilia collection and his writing of prose. He was a faithful member of First Mennonite in Lincoln where he could be found in the same chair every Sunday school hour and same pew every worship service. Marvin was known for sharing his insights and his writing in children’s stories there.

Marvin is survived by his brother and sister-in-law Douglas and Janet Gerritse, his niece Alexis, and his nephew Noah all of Plymouth, Nebraska.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Evert and Grace, an infant sister, his brother Terry, and his brother John.
