Marvin was a country boy at heart and loved to tell stories about growing up in Suwannee County. He was a good man who worked hard for what he had and helped out as many as he could along the way. He made a lot of friends throughout his lifetime and some of the best were in his “Over the Hill” club that for over 20 years would meet for breakfast. He loved woodworking; gardening, fishing, and making people laugh. He was simple, brave and loyal to a fault, truly the salt of the earth. He was a member of the Riverside Masonic Lodge #266

He is survived by his sister Lillian Radford, daughter Sharon Covart, his grand daughters Anna and Rachel Covart, grandson Bradley Gordon, one great-grandson Jacob Gordon.
