Marty attended Lewis & Clark technical school and did automotive work. He bought his first car and rebuilt it all by himself, auto repair was a big hobby of his. Marty and Barbara are members at Hope Bible Church where they have built many special relationships. He was always a bit of a character, teasing and joking yet very patient and non-judgmental. Marty was very good with kids and had a special relationship with his nieces and nephews, family was always most important thing in his life. He was always available to help and be a part of his friends and families lives, and encouraged others to do the same. Marty grew up hunting and fishing and enjoyed being outside. He loved his job and took pride in working for Crider Health, now Compass Health for more 15 years. Marvin was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Memorials may be made in Marty's name to Compass Health Network.

But the thing that I remember most was the smile of yours and the way you ALWAYS helped everyone when helped was needed.

      candle 3Marty was so nice at work,. He even dug me up some cattails to take home… I’m so sorry for your lost….

    candle 5I have so many good memories about Marty. He was there when his little sister and I played together as toddlers and went off to summer camp. I remember Owensville and how the older boys put up with us tagging along on adventures. He was always kind and had the brightest smile and never missed a family gathering. He was everything you could ask for in a brother, even though I was just a friend of his little sister. You will be so missed but you left endless great memories and the kindness you shared will carry on. I believe Jesus will enjoy your company immensely.

    I’m saddened to hear of Marty’s passing. He was always so kind, hard working and had a big heart. I always enjoyed seeing him at work, he would always stop what he was doing to catch up. My condolences to Barb and their families. Marty, you will be missed by many.

    candle 5You will be missed, Marty. I always knew I could ask you for help at work and you’d be right there. Work will not be the same without your physical presence, but I believe your spirit will be with us. I’m grateful to have known you.

    candle 3We were very sad to hear that Marty passed away. He was always ready to lend a hand if you needed help. Lots of fun times running around together in our youth. He will be missed. God bless him.
