May 26, 1922 – July 20, 2016
Marvin was born in Cawston, BC to parents Jerry and Jeanette Suiter. He became a brother to Lila and later Norma. The family took up a homestead near Hedley and that’s where the children grew up.
In 1946, Marvin married Lois Maxwell from the Vernon area.
Marvin’s lifetime employment was for the Seventh Day Adventist Church in various departments of administrative work across Canada. Marvin and Lois retired in 1987 and moved back to BC.
Marvin was predeceased by his wife Lois in 2009 and also his sister Lila & her husband Del. Marvin passed peacefully to rest in July, leaving two daughters: Maxine Woods and Glenna Kingsfield; three granddaughters: Melaney Woods & Chelsea and Chloe Kingsfield; sister Norma (Lin) Watts; sister-in-law Della (Allen) Guenther; six nephews; six nieces; and many others who knew and loved him. He will be sadly and endearingly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 11:00 am at Grandview Flats SDA Church (4678 Grandview Flats North). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca
