Orange, Marvin Andrew
Marvin Andrew Orange went to be with the Lord after an extensive battle with numerous health issues.
Marvin was a proud Army Veteran, bee keeper, collected model trains and lawn tractors. He loved singing tenor with his family and singing at church. Marvin was a joy to be around and made everyone smile!

He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Linda; brothers/sisters-in-law, Daniel and Susie Orange, David and Sally Orange and Mike Orange; sister/brothers-in-law, Brenda and Stephen Lilly, Frances and Stew Bison; brother/sisters-in-law, Barry and Brenda Sheppard, Larry and Barbara Sheppard; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and godchildren. He will be missed by life-long traveling friends, Joe and Loretta Underwood.
