    Am so sorry to hear that I work with Marvin for years he will be missed

  3. Maury Gerson says:

    I served as Councilman and Vice-Mayor of the City of Manassas from 1980-1996. My thoughts and prayers are with Marvin’s family during these sad times. Marvin was one of the most dedicated, loyal, and best supervisors we had in the City of Manassas government. His employees respected him and loved working for him. He was instrumental in building and maintaining our street infrastructure during the build-up of Manassas. I fondly remember many times during bad snow storms doing ride-a longs with Marvin in his snow plow, yes, he was out there with his people and making sure our citizens were being helped.

  4. Bonnie Betancourt says:

    My heart and prayers go out to Clara and the family. I so enjoyed our nearly weekly conversations as he waited for Clara at the hair salon. I will miss these conversations.
