MARVIN BROWN

Marvin Gene Brown entered into eternal life with his Lord and Savior on Sept. 19, 2016. He was born Sept. 20, 1934, in Richfield, Kan., to Roy and Nellie (Arnold) Brown.

Marvin graduated from Flagler High School in Flagler, Colo., in 1953 and married the love of his life, Mary Ann Keller. They moved to Keystone, Neb., where he was a ranch hand.

In 1961, Marv started his own towing company, “Marv’s Wrecker service” in Boulder, Colo. — building a fleet of 14 wreckers; the largest towing company in three states and in 1978 voted “one of the three Boulder businesses anyone would love to own.”

After retirement, he moved to Yukon, Mo., in 1983 to pursue his dream of owning his cattle ranch. His talents included oil painting and woodcarving.

Marv and Mary Ann enjoyed traveling, especially their trip to Israel. They taught many Bible studies in their home.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Jayne; sisters, June Caldwell, Mae Pyle and Elva Louise Brown; and brother, Melvin Brown.

Marvin is survived by his wife, Mary Ann of 63 years; five daughters, Connie (Larry) Holder, Darla (Ken) Shupe, Sheila Braly, Susan (Richard) Brown and Pamela (Victor) Garcia; seven grandchildren, Dallas Kyle, Paul Kyle, Jayne Vargas, Brandon Shupe, Tiffany Duffy, Crystal Huber and Theron Hoedel; and 17 great-grandchildren.
