Marvin Lynn Anderson passed away in his sleep at OHSU after a brief battle with cancer. Marvin was born in Renton, Washington on April 5th, 1958 to Nora Lee Bear Anderson and Wayne Arthur Anderson. He was the first of their two sons. While still very young, the family moved out to the Hoko river in Clallam County and that is where Marvin grew up. They would spend their summers in Omak over in Eastern Washington. He graduated the class of '76 at Clallam Bay High School. Marvin did a short stint in the National Guard and upon his return home he started his 30+ year career as a window glazer/installer. After moving to Port Angeles, Marvin would meet and begin dating Teresa Stafford in 1995. They married two years later and raised their six kids together. Eventually, Marvin and Terri would relocate to Kingston, Washington. After retiring, Marvin and Terri moved to Long Beach, Washington. That is where he spent the rest of his life with his wife by his side and getting to see one of his best friends everyday. Marvin loved to fish, go camping, travel all across America, spoiling his 8 grandkids, and work on cars. He was a huge NASCAR fan with Sterling Marlin being his favorite driver and Kevin Harvick taking that spot once Marlin retired. Marvin was hardly seen without his Harvick sweatshirt or Harvick hat on. His second love was the Green Bay Packers.
