Relation: Friend of the family

I first noticed Marv on a soccer sideline around 1975, and got to know him over the next 5 years. I remember his patience, tolerance and firmness with his sons and their various friends. He was always willing to lend a hand with any number of frequently messy projects taking place with cars in the driveway. I also have fond memories of one christmas dinner at the Larson home, where it was clear how proud he was of his family. At one point I recall Marv looking across the table. His eyes rested on Mary and his ready smile poured across his face. I feel fortunate to have known Marv and Mary during those years of my life and send my regards to Jim, Pete and their families too.
