    Marvin was a true Mensch. I had the pleasure of growing up with Marvin in Cleveland, Ohio and attending school through high school with him.
    He was a caring, sincere and intelligent fellow and one whose wisdom was always highly regarded as was his friendship and loyalty.
    He will be remembered and missed.
