Uncle Marv- Every Sunday I saw you, brightened my day. You always had that wonderful, contagious smile on your face. In the short time I knew you, I thought the world of you! While waiting for church to start from your throne, I loved coming to get my hug and wintergreen mint from you. Thank you for ALWAYS being such a fun, witty, caring, loving compassionate guy! I will really miss you! I know I will see you someday in Heaven- this time I'll bring the mints!

Sorry for Your Loss. I Worked with Marv and his team for many years at the Monroe (WI) Fire School. We learned a lot from each other. The Fire Service has lost a gem.

Marvin was a true gentleman, in every sense of the word! He was also born with the gift of laughter and shared it freely with everyone who came in contact with him. Marilyn and Rebecca, your family holds a very special place in our hearts and we are grieving with you. Much Love,

One of the greatest men I have ever known. He always taught me to give my best and to be honorable. When I think about the best in mankind, Mr Austin will always be one of the first people I think of.

Dear Family:

So very sorry to hear of Marvin's passing. Marvin was a wonderful, caring and cheerful person, He had the best sense of humor ever! I remember so many times when their group of friends were together and I saw them having the best time (Marvin was usually leading the fun). Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Marvin will forever be in our memories and in our hearts.
