Marvin, aka Marv or Vin, was born in Litchfield, MN to Maynard and Pearl Holmberg. The family moved to California when he was three years old. He graduated from Hoover High School in San Diego (1952) and San Diego State University (1956). Marv served two years in the US Navy as a storekeeper on the USS Brown, DD 546. He then went to work at Convair and spent his entire career there retiring after 35 years of service. He is survived by his wife of 62+ years, Bobbi, and daughters Janet (Shawn) and Pamela (Heather).
Marv passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Our thanks to Bridge Hospice and Lantern Crest Memory Care for their loving support.
