Wouldn't even try to say it better. Thanks for the memories and the great airgun offerings. I've missed him for many years since I left Ontario, and I was elated to find him again when I found this site after moving to Alberta. RIP, my friend.

Marvin was the god father of airguns and got me my first Sharp Innova and P1 in 1992

I will never forget him. And genuine guy and I will miss him. A bit of a punch in the gut to hear this

R.I.P Mr. Marvin

Mr. Marv
I called him. I've been a little frozen since Ace called me and told me. I guess I know when something hurts me I go into this freez or shock. So it's hard to reminisce so many many years we have been friends. I heard someone here say he was like a celebrity , yes I agree he was. He was Great ... so he must be with Great Ones now. He must be going to a Great Place now.
I will miss you

Wow, that’s sad news.

I sold him gun late Fall and we chatted briefly about how long we’d been dealing with each other which was about 25 years.

He was always someone you could deal with fairly and definitely a fixture at the local gun shows.

RIP

Apologies, Looking for info on Mr. Marvin.

Some of you may not know this but, Marvin played hockey on Tuesday nights, he was our oldest player. Once the pandemic hit he stopped playing and recently we restarted our game.

We tried emailing and calling him to join us and we haven't heard from him recently. I found this forum post about his passing and joined to ask if anyone has some information.

If someone has any information on the circumstances and where he was laid to rest, please contact me mr.bill.cheung@gmail.com

My men's hockey team would like to pay their respects to "Marvelous" = Mr. Marvin and say goodbye...

Thank you for your time...
