Marvin worked hard all of his life. He quit school at an early age and went to work as a ranch hand, fibbing about his age in order to get a driver’s license. He was a self-taught mechanic and welder and had worked for Feinberg’s in Fort Madison for a number of years. The majority of his life was spent as an over the road truck driver, logging in millions of miles while traveling the nation.
