  1. Lou was one of my first boyfriends back in the day when I was in high school at Niantic and he lived in Illiopolis. He was a sweet soul, never heard him say a bad word about anyone. Marcia Brown Nelsen

  2. My sincere condolences and prayers to his family. Marvin was a super great guy and a good friend. He did so much for me and we enjoyed working on projects together. He as a super friend to many people and the MAN everyone turned to when they needed help with things. He enjoyed working on many projects, building things and helping others do projects too. He was the MAN. I will miss him terribly. Rest in Heaven Marv, we will see you again one day. All my love Bud
