He loved life, sports and hobbies of all kinds, especially hunting, fishing, hiking and camping. He was proud of his accomplishment of hiking the Appalachian Trail. In a little over three months he hiked 1,050 miles from Georgia to Pennsylvania. His goal was to hike the entire trail in six months ending in Maine. He was well on his way but came home to celebrate the birth of his daughter, Lena. Marvin’s other lifelong dream was to build his home on the family farm “Turks Ferry” in Glenns. This was completed with great joy along with his wife Crystal two years ago. A celebration of his life will be held 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 7th at Bristow-Faulkner Funeral Home, Saluda, VA.
