Our Mom & Dad were friends with Frank & Lucille before any of us kids were ever born. We grew up with Marvin's older siblings. I (Bill Slane) was in the same school class in Jr. High and High School with Bill Andreen. Know the whole family. Our hearts go out to you and all the family. wish we could come up, but we live in Utah. Please feel our love and concern from the bottom of our hearts!!

Oh Marvin , you came to my home and you fixed my washing machine and after two hours only charged me 25 dollars . I said it was unfair and I wanted to pay you more and you said no it was more than fair . Marvin you lived a good life and treated everyone fair . Your honesty and love for others was encompassing and your memory will stay with me for the days of my life . May God's speed be upon you now as you rest with the Lord Yeshua (Jesus) Ha Mashiach (the Messiah) And may His Spirit be upon your family .
