Memories Timeline


  1. Marv will be dearly missed. He was a daily part of my life for 15 years and a weekly part for another 10. Marv was always full of stories, some funny, some sad, about hi life growing up in Montana, his life in the U.S. marines, and his life at Northrop. I was so happy the one Friday at lunch when my oldest son was able to join us and be a part of the stories Marv told. Thank you so much Marv, for all of the learning, the joy and the amazement you were able to leave in all of our lives.
