Marvin’s connection and commitment to his Jewish roots began at an early age. Marvin was sent to the Lubavitch Center at 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn New York to learn the year leading up to his Bar Mitzvah where he received a blessing from the Rebbe. Marvin was a member of Beth Tikvah Synagogue for over 52 years where he enjoyed Shabbat and Holiday services and various educational programs. Marvin’s commitment, dedication and love of his heritage was passed down to his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Marvin’s work ethic, generous spirit, gentle soul and complete dedication to his family served as an inspiration to everyone who knew him. Marvin was a great role model and had the unique ability to relate to all generations. He was incredibly kind and this radiated from both his actions and his warm familiar smile.
A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Marvin was a successful businessman before moving into the field of education where he was known as a respected and loved teacher and Dean of Students. Marvin spent the last 25 years in the workforce as a distinguished Supervisor at the Ontario Correctional Institute heading up a major treatment center.
The family would like to thank Marvin’s amazing, caring and professional medical team. Our special appreciation goes to Dr. Neil Fleshner and the Princess Margaret team, Dr. Russell Goldman and Dr. Sid Nusinowitz. Their loving care and commitment to our Father will never be forgotten!
