Passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 31, 2021, at the age of 91. He was a devoted father, grandfather, and the husband of the late Thelma Toby (nee Ginsberg).
Born June 6, 1929, Marvin grew up in Philadelphia with his mother Anna, and his three sisters Mildred, Doris, and Edith. At 17, he joined the US Army, serving in Japan during the occupation and subsequently in Korea, leaving the Army in 1956 as a Staff Sergeant. Following his military service, he went on to manage a number of Rose Auto stores in Philadelphia and its suburbs.
In 1951, he married the love of his life, Toby. Together they raised their three beloved children and remained happily married for 55 years. Upon his retirement, he and Toby relocated to Lake Worth, FL, where they enjoyed the sunshine and cruising the world together. After Toby’s passing, Marvin moved to be with family in the Rochester area, settling in Webster, NY. It was in Webster that he spent his days together with five of his eleven grandchildren and many friends. He was an avid reader and a devoted Philadelphia Eagles fan who never missed a game.
Marvin was a genuinely kind, hardworking, and honest man, and was loved by all. An imperturbable man of fundamental integrity and sage wisdom, he will be deeply missed by his family, with whom he was both close and happily involved. He is survived by his three children Steve (Maiken Nedergaard), Arlene (Ben) Sendrow, and Howard (Faith), and his eleven grandchildren, Jonathan, Nanna, Tobias, Siri, Caspar, Evan, Sam, Rachel, Ian, Cory and Rachel, as well as by his surviving sister, Doris (Leonard) Burk, and many caring nieces and nephews.
Marvin was passionate in support of veterans’ organizations, and the family would like to acknowledge his fantastic care by both the Rochester VA and Wilmot Cancer Center. In lieu of flowers, contributions should be directed to Jewish War Veterans, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, or Disabled American Veterans.
