Marvin was a wonderful man, who cared lots, he always had time to listen and give advice.
His brother, Lonnie, says: And who would have thought I could have witnessed your generosity in helping out a struggling LDS ward. The ward was seeking money to build a chapel. Many of us would have said that's too bad, but not Marvin. He had to get involved. He wrote them out a check and gave it to them freely.
And I marveled at your mind. You came up with ways to fix mechanical problems that were astounding and so unique. You were gifted in your ability to solve problems.Your kindness is overwhelming. You will be sorely missed.
Daughter CoriAnn says: my dad is the smartest man I know, and the toughest, the most tender hearted, and the most ingenious man too! He gained a love of music through his mother, and it always touched his heart! I'm so grateful for the life he gave me, the strength, and the love! He far exceeded his responsibilities of father, provider, and protector! I love you Dad and I will miss warmth of your big, strong hands.
Another friend remarked: I respected his thoughts and that his paths were always true to himself. And what a family! So successful where it really counts!
Goodbye Marvin Iverson. You will be sorely missed.
Graveside services will be held Saturday September 23 at 2:00 pm at the Otto Cemetery.
