    candle 7My heart is Broken. Marv was a great travel companion and we shared our passion for Corvettes, Corvette Racing, and photography and a great friendship.
    I can’t begin to express my deep appreciation for Marv and how much I miss him already!

    We are happy to have been close friends with Marv and Karen for many years. Marv’s love for Corvettes was a driving force that kept him always happy that he could share that passion with us and the entire Boone Trail Corvette Club. We were with him shortly before he left us, and he was reminiscent of years of happiness that the Corvette and Karen brought him. This world, as we know it, is a lesser place without him, but he will always be with us through memories of happy times. Our tears may fade, but his memory never will.

    It is always with a heavy heart to think about those who are no longer with us. Marv was always willing to help and be a friend to those in our Corvette Club. He will be missed and always remembered with kind thoughts. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Karen and their children.
