1942 ~ 2010

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Marvin after a courageous battle with cancer. He passed away with his family by his side. Marvin is survived by his wife Rose and daughter Shelley. He was predeceased by his sister Lynda (Dave). He also leaves his parents Ron and Nora Walton, his brother Gary (Pat), Wayne (Jeanette), Terry (Marty), Ron (Deb) and many nieces and nephews. We will fondly remember his sense of humour, quick wit, and feisty spirit. Many years were spent enjoying life, fishing, flying, camping, hunting, and cruising. A man of many talents, no challenge too great. He will always hold a place in our hearts. We would like to acknowledge those who assisted Marvin in his latter days. Thanks to Dr. Marais, Dr. Chapman and the nursing staff at Ridge Meadows Hospice Society. A memorial service will be held at Garden Hill Funeral Chapel 11765 224th Street, Maple Ridge at 1pm on Saturday, August 28th 2010.
