We are sad to hear of Marvin's passing. He has been a boating client of ours for many years and we always enjoyed his stories when he came to see us every year. He will be missed.

We too, are greatly saddened by the loss of this great man. "Marvin" was a household name for us, living in Coldwater, Michigan...my dad sent truckloads of produce from our family farm to Marvin in Florida - all my growing up years. My dad considered Marvin a great friend and business partner. Marvin and June would visit and always showed us great love and generosity. Marvin could light up a room with his personality and June was the love of his life. God bless and keep him close and we send our deepest sympathies to June. The world has lost a great man. We pray the angels are celebrating with his Homecoming.

I am so saddened by this, especially since I did not know about it in time for the funeral. I worked for Marvin for a long time. I can truthfully say he was a legend in his own time, and the best at what he did. My sincerest condolences to June.

I started working for Marvin and June when I was 14 years old. Marvin taught me, two important work ethics, that I have carried throughout my life and my business, "Never fear hard work and there is no easy way!"
I always sell a top quality product, this practice I learned from Marvin, also.
I moved away when I was 21 years old and had just gotten married. Even though I left Marvin's side, I still carry his outstanding morals with me, 35 years later. He made a lasting impression on me. He will be missed but not forgotten!
I have fond memories of going out to dinner with June and Marvin after a hard days work. Also, I recall the
happy times we had going out in "June Bug" with them both.
My prayers go out to June and her family.

I met Marvin and June thru my employment with Republic Security Bank and built a friendship around the neighborhood and all the challenges the world brought to South Florida. For twelve years I considered myself more than just his banker, but a friend. He will be missed as a man of integrity, and a family friend for which my children loved to send holiday cards.
I believe there was no other love than he had of June, and traveling around the US either by coach or boat. God speed on your travels and may we all come together at a later date. You will be missed and I will make an effort to make sure June always has a consultant for sound advice and some protection.

I will always remember Marvin at my family reunions when I was growing up. He was always the life of the room and I always looked forward to talking to him. I will always remember all of the fireworks he brought one year as we lit them off at the Basset farm. He truly made my 4th of July as I still talk about that memory today. Rest in Peace.

Uncle Marvin was a good man. My greatest memory was when I was 3 yrs old and me and my mom and dad got to spend a wonderful winter season down in Hollywood. Seeing all the pumpkins, oranges and apple cider will forever be a ingrained in my mind. Thank Uncle Marvin for giving me such great memories. You will be missed

Marvin, Has known our family for over 50 years and we raised Pumpkins together in Michigan,and that is why he had been known as the Pumpkin "KING" .When I last spoke to Marvin on July 17, He was planning on coming up to visit with his wife June after he got to feeling better. It SADDENS me deeply that his trip will never be made.
It is a VERY BUSY time of the year in the Fruit & Vegetable Business for us in Michigan and with that said I know in my heart that I MUST be in Holly Wood Florida on Wednesday August 1,2012 to say good bye to our family friend.
I am going to miss you Marvin !
