To Mike and Gary,
My prayers are with you. Your Dad and Mom loved you so much and were proud of you. Ron and I had such enjoyable times during our camping days at Hickory Lakes with The Jensens. The nightly campfires, card playing and Marv's cooking in his big iron kettle, or on the grill, are memorable times indeed!

Our sincerest condolences to Norma and the Jensen family.
It was indeed a pleasure to have known him. A wonderful person and little on the ornery side, which made him such and enjoyable person to be around and share some laughs.
The would needs more like him!
God bless you Marv!

So sorry to see of Marvins death. You have our deepest sympathy and in our thoughts and prayers

Mike, so sorry to hear of Marv's passing. It's either God's gift or a cruel joke that at someone's death we are flooded with memories. I remember things way back in the day, like a awesome SS Chevelle, a spot on imitation of Flip Wilson's Geraldine, countless hours on the CB, and the gift of visiting you and hanging with Marv and Shirl. They were just outright crazy fun. Again, sincerest condolences on your lost.
