He is survived by; partner, Josephine Perez; sisters, Ruth Corueil, Santee California, Muriel Schuerman, Downey California, and Natalie and Helmut Cremer, Toronto; plus nieces, nephews, and greats. Marv spent his life working in Binghamton as a many-talented, hard-working handyman and repairman. He roofed local houses up until a couple years ago. His leisure was largely taken up by dancing with his beloved life partner Josephine, at Binghamton’s many delightful venues providing dance floors and bands, even outdoors during covid-19 summer. Having graduated from Binghamton Central High, Marv served in the Air Force toward the end of the Korean War, stationed in Japan. After serving his country, Marv went to school to learn refrigeration repair at Alfred Tech, on the GI Bill. He worked for two years in Long Beach, California before returning to help his father in the family business, buying, selling, and repairing stoves and refrigerators. Marv loved animals, having sheltered and fed many dozens of feral cats in the neighborhood. Marv will be missed by friends, customers, and his devastated surviving sisters.
