He attended Mountainview Elementary and graduated from Como Lake High. After serving an apprenticeship as a pressman with Jackson Printers, Marv worked for The Columbian Newspaper before moving his wife and children to Kamloops in 1976, where he was employed by The Kamloops Daily News and later Cariboo Press in Vernon. After retirement he delivered newspapers, moved vehicles between car dealerships and drove a pilot truck.

Marv was predeceased by his parents Norman and Mary Russell.

He leaves behind his wife Ellen, daughter Lisa and son Chris (Melissa), his brothers Larry (Lynn), Bob (Myrtle), sister Mavis (Mark), nephews, nieces, great nephews and great nieces.

A private service will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank the many friends who telephoned and visited Marv during his last days. We also wish to thank the nurses of Royal Inland Hospital and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice for their compassion and excellent care.
