Marvin Donald Block, age 80, of Garrison formerly of Maplewood, MN passed away peacefully with his loving wife and step-son by his side on 11/28/21 at the Garrison Memorial Hospital.  A celebration of Marvin’s life will be held on Saturday, December 4, beginning at 4:00 pm at Hunter’s Bar and Grill in Garrison.

Marvin was born to Reinhard and Gladys Block on December 27th, 1940 in St. Paul, MN. Marvin passed due to complications of ALS, but fought a long hard battle to the end.

Marvin worked 40 years with the 3M company in St. Paul, MN until retiring at age 68. Marvin and his wife Donna moved to Garrison a couple years ago to enjoy a peaceful retirement and spend time with his step-son and their new found friends. Marvin enjoyed many things throughout his life. Marvin enjoyed fishing, gardening, cooking and “rooting” for the Minnesota Vikings, formerly Minnesota North Stars now Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Twins. Marvin enjoyed visiting with family and friends and always had a story to tell and or advice to give to those in need. Most of all Marvin enjoyed music. Marvin played the acoustic guitar and sang on many occasions throughout his lifetime.

Marvin is survived by his wife Donna, his sister Shirley, 7 children, 2 step-sons and many grandchildren.

Marvin is preceded in death by his parents, one sister and one son.

Marvin had a light about him that people enjoyed. On many occasions it would be seen Marvin helping someone out no matter what the situation was. We thank everyone that has helped Marvin during his ALS battle and those that simply came by to say hello.
