Loving Memory of Marvin Cornelius Green
In Sunrise August 12, 1964
Sunset August 21, 2020
Marvin attending elementary, Jr. High, and High School in
Stockton, as well as Lodi, later graduating from Job Corp in San
Bernardino. Marvin spent most of his life growing up in Stockton
and was known all throughout the city. Marvin loved sports and
was an avid 49er fan. He loved his music, his children, his family,
and his friends.
On his business card, he was simply Marvin the Handyman, no
matter what other job he may have held down at the time (mostly
construction). Marvin knew he was gifted in the things he put his
hands to, nicknaming himself “Blackgyver”. No matter how long
or difficult the job, Marvin took pride in his work, doing it the right
way, the first time.
Faced with many challenges in his life, as we all are, determined
to do it his way, he could be difficult. He would turn those times
into a story to make everyone laugh.
Marvin’s wittiness and desire to connect, would have him at an
early age, during church service, causing everyone to laugh at the
improvised things that he would do. Connecting had him in the
know at family functions, (he loved to eat).
Connecting at church, where he worked and worshiped, he knew,
gave him peace in his life.
We will go on telling stories about Marvin, laughing at him being
